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 portraits and a stage concert photo for e.g. CD, poster, magazine, theater program and flyer.
My favorite photographer is Herbie Yamaguchi (1950-), Robert Doisneau (1912-1994), Frank Horvat(1928-), Henri Cartier-Bresson(1908-2004), Sabine Weiss(1924-) and Vivian Maier(1926-2009).
My favorite photography field is Street and Portraits. 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.
My hobbies are opera, ballet and baking the cake. Keigo Higashino (Japanese writer). 80’s Metal. My favorite is BABYMETAL.

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.
