Michael Hansard

Michael Hansard is a photographer living and working in Tokyo.

Hello and welcome to my site. I’ve been a photographer for over 10 years now and still consider myself a student. I love to learn new techniques, exchange ideas and add new styles to my art.

Recently I have been experimenting with video production and 360/VR. Fascinating technology that I hope to master that would allow the viewer to be in the action and plan to launch a YouTube channel. So stay tuned!

I have published a couple of books based on my “World as I see it…” series which can be found here: http://www.blurb.com/b/8997286-the-world-as-i-see-it-2018

I’m a curious soul. Fun loving and have travelled quite a bit around Asia over the years. I love the people I meet in each country and wish I could spend every day exploring more. Don’t we all?

I haven’t spent that much time documenting this beautiful country. Sure, I wander around Tokyo or many of the mainstream tourist sites. But there is so much more to this country. So I plan on, getting out of the city, traveling the countryside & exploring the true beauty of Japan. If you find me out there shooting, please say “hello!”

Please feel free to contact me anytime at michael@mhansard.com if you have questions or just want to shoot the bull (I can spin a tale or two).

Enjoy the photos!
