I was asked by YouTube to photograph young video creators for their profile pictures and promotional materials. It was an intense shoot, lasting two days, with over two dozen people being photographed in total. The location was the YouTube offices in Tokyo, where they have a giant production facility. As a photographer, this was a dream location to shoot in, although I had to adapt the space, normally used for video, for photography. The people were an incredible mix – experts on martial arts and makeup, musicians, comedians and more. Here are some behind-the-scenes photos, as well as some of the final photos created for the project.
