About Me copy


About the Hashimoto Photography:

I started getting serious about photography when I was given an old 35mm Olympus OM-2 back when I was a teenager. I learned about aperture, shutter speed, ISO, depth of field, and composition by experimenting, failing, and experimenting again. It’s with that process how I aim to constantly progress in my work; I am always finding inspiration in other artists’ work, and am constantly reading about new tricks and techniques. Since the days of the OM-2, I’ve upgraded to digital equipment (film costs are no friend to young photographers, but fear not: I still have that trusty Olympus) and have been developing my techniques and business for 10 years now. I now shoot on professional Canon equipment and have worked with a number of amazing clients, and I look forward to working with many more.
