Ten years ago I got my first dslr. I started traveling and after my trip to Jordan I got hooked. My journey into photography started. In Kenya I started to do my first "street" and to be honest I was more happy with those pictures then the ones of the safaris. Those shots told a story I could feel the emotion of the people. So that's were I discovered street photography. Of course the first few steps into this photography was a bit scary and I had to overcome a lot. Taking pictures of unknown people can be scary will they bite you or will they get mad at you.
Nowadays 99% of my work is street photography and I have overcome my fears of taking pictures of people. The streets of all big cities are my playground, but my favorite city is Tokyo. Lots of my street is taken there. I love it out there, the people, the rush of the city, modern, but also traditional in a way I had never experienced before. On every corner I could find another small story to capture. A city of millions where you can get lost in the crowds finding that one jewel of a street shot.
