Thank you for visiting the Kansai Musubu Photo website.

My name is Yusuke Kawakami and I work as a photographer in the Kansai region, mainly in Osaka and Kyoto.

In 2008, when I was a student at Doshisha University, I wanted to photograph the scenery of Kyoto.

I bought a DSLR camera and have continued shooting from there.

After gaining experience in sales at a manufacturer, I worked at a photo production company and was involved in bridal photography.

After leaving the company, I am currently working as a photographer for Kansai Musubu Photo, focusing on portrait photography.

[Thinking about photography]

What I value most is "taking pictures with a sense of security".

A sense of security is not determined only by the completed data,

We believe that it is born out of communication with our customers.

[What I want to achieve through photography]

I want to connect with customers and customers of customers through photography.

Kansai Musubu Photo is named from this feeling.
