Makoto – A DJ with a Camera

Makoto Shimizu

Our featured photographer this week is someone different – Makoto – a DJ/producer from Japan.

He has been making soulful drum & bass/electronic music for 14+ years, but also can hold his own with camera.

In his own words from a recent interview:

“My hobby is taking photos. To me making music and taking photos are very similar or I would say quite the same.

But I don’t go too deep on photos as much as i do on music, as I know I wouldn’t stop going into details…”

He posts a lot of photos on his Facebook page, and we’ve rounded up some of the best here for your viewing pleasure. Also don’t forget to have a listen to his beautiful and intricately produced music.

Even I’m not strict Buddhist, I love being in the temple and pray as it really calms me down and encourages me. © Makoto
