Photographer Eiji Yamamoto

Eiji YAMAMOTO, professional photographer and PhotoAritst, from Japan.

Since 2007 Eiji Yamamoto lives in Saarbrücken, Germany, married.

While studying in Munich, he started as a photographer and did both a tourist photo and a street photo for a magazine, a learning book and an event, as well as portrait and a stage concert photo for e.g. CD, poster, magazine, theater program and flyer.

 

My favorite photographer is Mr. Herbie Yamaguchi (1950-),  Robert Doisneau (1912-1994), Sabine Weiss(1924-) and Vivian Maier(1926-2009). The most influenced photographer is Reni Leifenstal (1902-2003).

My favorite photography field is Street and Portrait. My favorite image is a picture of people and the images of people’s feelings, thoughts and emotions (even though people are not shown). I think that a photo is a dialogue and communication between a photographer and an (invisible) person.

Gear – Photographer Eiji Yamamoto

Previously, I used several Digital and Analog SLR cameras. However, I was concerned about the noise of the SLR cameras during the concert and the stage rehearsal, and when I got Olympus system camera E-P1 in 2009, I gradually switched from SLR camera to system camera.
