10,000 plus images!


While in my studio the other day, processing over 10,000 images from the big 8/8/08 wedding week, I heard someone with an absolutely gorgeous voice singing at my studio door. The singing was followed by a very soft and barely audible gentle knock. When I went to my studio door, I discovered three beautiful Japanese woman and one baby boy awaiting me with radiant smiles.

It turns out the singer was Aika, a famous Japanese opera recording artist and sound therapist who was recommended to see me via Suga Kunitomo, the owner of the Japanese Izani Dance Troupe that performed before the Emperor and Empress of Japan.

To make a long story short, Aika said she loves my photography and would like me to do the photography for her next CD. In the last several days we have done 3 shoots. The above photo is one of the photos that we like the most so far. We may be following up our Maui photo shoots with a shoot in Osaka, Japan.

If you want to know more about Aika, the links to her 3 websites are below. They are all in Japanese, but there is some beautiful audio if you want to hear her voice:

I look forward to hearing from you and delivering exquisite photos your way!

with warm aloha,

Richard Marks
