Photographer Takayuki Arai


Born in Kanagawa, Japan  in 1983.


It was when I was in Vancouver, Canada in 2005.

I set up my camera to take a building written "STUDENT HOUSING".

There was a noise that the skater slipped from the left side.

The moment the skater crossed the front of "STUDENT HOUSING", I took off the shutter.


That moment, a pleasant feeling I have not felt before, was transmitted to my whole body from my finger like a lightning bolt.


Started activities as a photographer with this one photo as a trigger.


Currently working mainly in Tokyo, Shonan area as a weatherproof photographer including children and family photographs, party weddings and event party snaps, completed photos such as buildings and interior, portraits such as artist photos and advertisement photographs .
