They’re so cute yes they are… We love having these cute little assassins around. And their cute little assassin ways are so cute. I was watching a video of Daisy up on YouTube the other day, watching how she likes to strike from cover. She likes to be hidden in her box, leaping out, instant death to all manner of […]

It’s just one of the real interesting views of Tokyo that most people miss… And I had one quick chance to try my hand at it with the Hasselblad H5D-50C – hand-held, in the dark of the subway tunnel, with the 300mm lens. Not bad, […]

For one, it’s a massively famous tourist location that is easy for people to access, being right next to Harajuku in the heart of Tokyo. Also, it’s a short walk from the Hasselblad Japan […]

Being a photographer is a dirty unglamorous job. You only see the shiny finished product, but you don’t see 90% of the photos that hit the cutting room floor. You don’t see the blood shed to get that beautiful moment. The scars. Well, here’s a look behind the veil, into the world of hard-working photographer Ben Torode.
