Wanted: Models. Men, women, young, old, whatever.
Theme: Japanese summer.
When: Summer (Any time now to mid-September), but contact me as soon as possible, so I can fix my schedule.
Where: Mostly Nagoya (Sakae, Shin-Sakae, Higashiyama Botanic Gardens, Tsurumai Park, or even Shin-Maiko on the Meitetsu Line), but I may also do a trip to Tokyo and Kyoto. For travelling models, look at my Nagoya, Kyoto, and Tokyo pages for ideas.
Why: Actually, I’m not normally available to shoot in summer in Japan, and so I have this big gap in my portfolio. Also, I really don’t know what to shoot, and so I need some practice and a chance to experiment with a summer theme.
Paid: For the right model, yes I can pay. Otherwise, TFP (Trade for photos), which is perfect for models wanting their first photos for their portfolios, for professional models wanting shots for their Instagram feed, and creative models & MUA wanting help on a project.
What: I’d prefer to show typical Japanese summer themes like fireworks, festivals, but also water and sea. However, I’d be happy to hear your ideas and creatively plan a shoot together.
What to wear: Depends on the theme and creative style we can plan. If a summer festival, then a yukata would be great. If in the city, then summer fashion themes. If you have another idea, please tell me.
Found drone. If it’s yours, tell me the serial number. Sorry, I can’t give you the jellyfish. ドローンを藤前干潟で見つけました。もし、持ち主の方がいましたらシリアルナンバーを教えてください。クラゲは残念ながらお渡しできませんが🤣
Update: I’ve contacted DJI Japan asking if they can match the serial number on the drone with the owner. Their reply, below, says that they don’t not have the contact details. Next step: Drop it in at a police station. I’ve started to use #藤前干潟 on social media, as that seems to show the right location on Instagram and Twitter. If you can share this blog post with that hashtag, I’m sure it will help.
I’ve covered the Kounomiya Naked Man Festival in the past; Kounomiya is the place and shrine near Nagoya, which is known in Japanese as Hadaka Matsuri, Hadaka means naked, and matsuri means festival. Below is the bigger spectacle in Okayama covered by the BBC just yesterday. Ceremonies for the Nagoya Kounomiya festival starts from this week, but the main event is on the 28th Feb 2018 (Kikuko Nagoya). If you want to participate in the this festival, you
have less than 24 hours to can email Kikuko. Enjoy.
Correction: I just received an email alerting me to an error on a source website. The event is not 28th Feb 2017, but in 2018 (which is 13th January of the lunar year).

NHK World News Podcast has last night reported that the hosting of the 2026 Asian Games has been awarded to the only applicant, Nagoya and Aichi. The two governments, city and prefectural, have submitted a joint application. Yay us!
