Hi! Thanks for visiting my website.
My name is Maki, I am a photographer born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. My grandfather introduced me to photography when I was 10 years old; I have been in love with it ever since.
I traded in the city lights and my budding career as a fashion photographer for the dark skies and natural beauty of New Zealand. I moved to Lake Tekapo in NZ's South Island (the heart of the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve) in 2010. While working as an astrophotographer there, I was lucky enough to have my images and time-lapse animations featured in various magazines, news papers, and TV programmes from all over the world including TV ONE(NZ), TV THREE(NZ), NHK(Japan), Nippon TV(Japan), Fuji TV(Japan), TV Tokyo(Japan), Air New Zealand, and NASA.
東京生まれ、育ち。10歳の時に祖父の影響で写真を始める。2010年からニュージーランドの南島、レイクテカポ (アオラキ マッケンジー星空保護区)を拠点に天体写真家として活動。過去作品は、新聞や、雑誌、TV ONE, THREE (NZ), 日本テレビ局各局、ニュージーランド航空や、NASAなどに使用される。
