Jason McDonald has been a Japan based photographer for 12 years. Someone with a keen eye for emotive scenes. Mixing candid moments along with studio setups, he is able to capture or recreate scenes that help define the emotion(s) he wishes to convey. With so many historical, cultural and even modern photos yet to be captured through the lens of this photographer, it is a modest goal that he at least try to fit in what he can of this photogenic country into his never-ending collection.
