I'm a local portrait photographer from Burnaby who's been in the arts his whole life - music, dance and photography.
I started out as a landscape photographer. Landscapes, astrophotography and cityscapes was what got me into photography. I transitioned into doing portraits in 2017 and haven't looked back.
Being able to bring out the best in someone is very rewarding. A good portrait can make people happy, comfortable and confident in themselves. I find that amazing. My goal is to be able to help people connect with others through my photography.
Metrotown has the perfect blend of Urban cityscapes, Parks and nature background and corporate setting. It's the perfect place to get everything from a lifestyle shoot, an outdoor nature shoot, and even a corporate headshot.
I just wanted to let you know that Yoshi made me feel completely at ease and comfortable.Yoshi was really easygoing and friendly. I am shy about picture taking, so this meant a lot to me. If I could give him a hundred stars I would!
Photographer made me comfortable and confident quickly. Provides great recommendations.
Great photographer, was amicable and put me at ease in what might otherwise be a nerve-wracking situation. Seemed very knowledgeable and prepared! This all felt very professionally done and easy to follow; thank you!
"Okay, wow. Kinda blown away at how easy this whole experience was. Yoshi made me feel at-ease and comfortable in my own skin. I hate photos of myself but somehow he managed to deliver an entire gallery of bangers. The difference in the quality of matches I'm getting now is night and day."
Yoshi was a pro at leading the whole thing. Like many others this was my first photoshoot and he was fantastic at guiding all the poses and angles. Overall it was a highly enjoyable experience and I look forward to seeing the end results!

I loved the photoshoot as well as the end results. The only thing that was a hassle was getting the final photoshoot date settled but that was purely due to poor Vancouver weather and not anyone's fault."
"Yoshi made me feel super comfortable and confident quickly. He provided great recommendations to make the photos look natural and less staged. Overall a fantastic experience."
