Cameraman who make me cameraman

Today, I want to talk about the man who give me the inspiration to urge me to take a photo for true journalism.
When I was wondering in the Tokyo city, I was happen to encounter the unusal cameraman. He wear red shirts and red pants. He take a picture lying on the middle of crowded crosswalk.
Everybody neally stumped him, somecar neally ran over him. Everybody astonish him. but What did he do ? He is just taking picture. Does it nessesary for him to wear red cloth ? For people to make people think of red signal ? Does it nessesary for lying on the middle of street just take a picture ?
He maybe artist who try to generate art. but he was already art by himself. and after seeing his shooting, I became shooter.
I dont know what he want to take a pciture of. But I thought he should be taken photo.
at that time, I was enlightened for shooting. If I’m allowed to say, i call it journalim.
this is why I start to take a photo.

He take a photo in the middle of the crosswalk.

Car and bike nearly ran over him.

He take a photo in crowded crosswalk.

Every body nearly stump over him.

But he keep taking photo. and it make me really confuse and inspire me.

I dont know who he is. and what he was doing. but this unusal unknow cameraman inspired me to take a photo.

this is my camera story.

  1. so it was thanks to him you started your camerawork? We all owe that guy a great favour!
    He is truly amazing: from the red clothes to the camera, to the crosswalk to his courage! He’s an amazing man.
    Did you not approach him and talk to him? Have you ever met him again?
    That guy is amazing.

    Yes, he is amazing. and I didnt talk to him nor I dont know who he is. I hope I can meet him someday.

  2. Fucking brilliant!

    I’d like to do something similar to what you do someday, so I guess you could say that you have “enlightened me for shooting”.
    Oh, and I just remembered, I saw a group of Hare Krishnas dancing and playing music the other day. They weren’t as enthusiastic as the ones you took pictures of before, but I’d never seen a group like that in America before. Maybe they got the idea from your site? ^_-
    =======from MasaManiA
    God bless you

  4. seems like he’s taking ninja shots of underskirts from that angle -&-
    ======from MasaManiA
    you have strange imagination

  5. It’s kinda…. clever and stupid at the same time…

  6. i know what he was trying to do..
    he wanted pictures of jap pussy !
    =======From MasaManiA
    I dont think so

  7. eee and booty bandit might not be so far off. it’s hard to see from the pictures what lens he had on that thing but his idea could be to take extreme wide angle (15mm or less) or fisheye pictures of groups of people from the ground up. the end result would be a bunch of warped and distorted people with tiny heads all looking down at him – perhaps an expression of the way he feels about his parents or society in general.
    why he waits for cars to come or wears red is beyond me. but photographers do weird things, wouldn’t you agree Masa?
    ==========from MasaManiA
    THank you for your professional insight.
    It’s good reference.
    and yes, photografpers do weird.

  8. LOL
    teh ultimate whitestripes wanna be… wears red, lays on stripes…
    ahh the irony…
    i like it…
    makes ya wonder how relaxed a life there would be…
    *longing sigh*

  9. Maybe he has a website somewhere and you can swap links. Have you looked for him online?
    ========from MasaManiA
    No. I dont know how to look for by on line.

  10. i believe he was/is getting a street level view of the people walking by a sort of ant like image looking up at the tall buildings i have allways wanted to do this sort of photography but alas my city has shitty buildings
    =============from MasaManiA
    Yes

  11. I think I can clear one thing up: he’s wearing red because he wants people to see him so that they don’t run him over. He’s a pragmatic ninjashotter.

  12. Wonderful and weird! It is a good thing you were inspired because this is a great web site and I admire your work.

  18. I hope you will see him again.

    thank you

  19. I think it’s a kind of artistic happening about journalism and their pictures that are important to show us something that we can see and the way to get such a picture that is often dangerous (like in Irak)… ro maybe there was a pretty girl (or boy) at a window and he wanted to be sure that she (he) sees him taking this picture like a great reporter, fearless, brave …. anyway, I tell him Tank u cause he inspired one of the best pohto-reporters on earth : you Masa. Keep it hard!
    =========From MasaManiA
    THank you

  20. Drixxx? What do you want Masa to keep hard? The photography or something else?

  21. Wish we could see how his photos turned out!
    Some pictures we see are amazing shots, but if you think about what the photographer must have done to get such a shot… then that is just as amazing.
    Thanks for capturing the effort of the photographer, but please never lay in the street.
    =========from MasaManiA
    Yes

  22. Hey, Masa, you know what I’ve always wondered?
    I’m an American and I do kendo. Kendo as you know is a nationak past time in Japan but not so in America. Though large numers of people do kendo here they are not so many as other sports or martial arts. Anyway, the experience has given me a great deal of involvement with Japanese, something I appreciate.
    I’ve wondered for some time what your take would be on “fucking martial arts,” especially “fucking kendo.” Of course, not all the Japanese I have met have the same attitude toward it – they range from the people who love and revere martial arts to those who could care less or even dislike it. (One woman I know said the dojo at her school “smelled terrible.”) If you ever decide to do a piece on Martial Fucking Arts I for one would read with enthusiasm.
    ========from MasaManiA
    I did Karate. Japanese martial arts is very interesting because we train not only mustle but also sprit and dayily behavior. we call it, Mind, Technique and Body.

  23. I do photography too, and yes, photography can be a very hazardous hobby. I remember dangling from the rooftop of my college dormitory in the baking sun so that i could take a picture of the school from a more interesting angle.
    Pity my camera fell and broke into a million pieces. I loved that camera.
    Keep the pics rolling Masa-san.
    ========from MasaManiA
    Thank you

  24. he is lost girlfriend syndrome.

  25. Perhaps you might consider a similar expression of interpetive art with photography. Masa could perform a recreation of his inspiration by laying on a street at night with a flash attachment. Consider wearing only black cloth or perhaps being naked and covered with balck shoe polish. Have you next of kin inform us of how it went.

  26. MIXUPA NO SACO

    You MAD,MAD,MAD,Camera-Man CHAPOLIM COLORADO,Kiss you my freend, ay lick,man and camera big fink funck for you,GOOD???
    Bay,bay my boy.

  27. Maybe he is shooter for underwear…

  28. I bet the last picture he makes wil be 1 from under a car or bus or truck………!!!!!
    WHOEAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA!!!!!

  29. indonesian_fag

    oh, dont worry about that, i saw somebody once who takes photo in a highway, he takes photo no matter if a car past him in 60mph, he just lying on the road, taking pictures.
    its kinda interesting, so i parked my car near him and wait.
    -of course, there is a police taking him away. kinda funny when you listened to them he says “i was taking pictures of UFO past beyond this point earlier”
    what a fag.

  30. Well he is obviousily wearing red so cars don’t run over him, He is probabily lying down so he gets a cool angle of all the people walking around.
