Tokyo by James Gourley

A month ago I arrived In Tokyo for the first stop on a 9 week trip through East Asia, which took me through Japan to Beijing, up to North Korea, then to South Korea (where I currently am) then to South China before heading to Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, and finally Thailand. Here are some of my photos from my time in Tokyo.

Finally, in Tokyo I had the pleasure of visiting the famous Shinjuku Robot Cabaret restaurant. A truly mind boggling experience, and one I recommend to anyone visiting Tokyo.

The film is a single location Neo-Noir film, which is why all of the photographs are from the same room! For more information watch the behind the scenes video which I shot (on a 5d Mark III) and edited using Avid Media Composer and Symphony.

Last night I was at the Royal Albert Hall to photograph Coldplay for one of only three UK shows this year.

I have also been commissioned to shoot the behind the scenes video for a major British TV drama series, which I will release more information on when I can.
