Shoji Uchida photography

Cinematographer and photographer Shoji Uchida has an eye for the unusual. Born in 1969, he became an award-winning photographer in 1993 and creates commercial, editorial and advertising photography that is both striking and stunningly composed. He has shot for many well-known brands including Nike, Apple, Toyota, Uniqlo, Nintendo, American Express and Sony.

Like some of my other favorite photographers (Eugenio Recuenco, Erwin Olaf , Annie Leibovitz and Massimo Gammacurta), there’s hardly anything this photographer cannot shoot. Fantasy, reality, fashion, graphic, emotional, artsy or journalistic, photographer Shoji Uchida can do it justice.

He has a large portfolio which encompasses many various types of styles. Here are a few of his images so you can see the breadth of his work.
