Morning Musume @ Best Buy Theater NYC (Oct. 5, 2014)

I haven’t photographed any Japanese musicians in about a year, so it was a pleasant surprise to get a phone call from an old friend about covering the Morning Musume concert in NYC.  You’ll most likely find the rest of the photos at RESONANCE Media.  Hopefully they’ll spread to other media/news sites from there.   […]

Otakon 2012 – Aya Hirano & VIXX

It says there’s […]
