I'm Yoichiro Sakai

I will show you photo works. It is that tasty natural beauty colors of every city, countryside, nature or airplanes, airports and airplane windows. 
When I take photos I don't miss it. My forte is looking for and shot a beautiful moment just like painting by my passion and clear heart.

I received 11 awards in 2020, when I could gain confidence into the kind of landscape photos. And, 36exp Photographers' School, especially Andrew Mason professional photographer taught me about business of photography so I will do it a better deal with you. so I am trying to widen own sphere of activity.
