Motoki Hirai – concert pianist performing in aid of the Japanese earthquake relief

with 2 comments

I recently photographed the concert pianist & composer Motoki Hirai at a concert he gave in partnership with the Japan Society for the Japanese earthquake relief.

Motoki’s performance was incredible. I’m hoping there will be more opportunities to shoot him in the future.

I also have had a play with my water-mark. Not quite sure it’s there yet though.

    • Thanks Tracey. It was lucky that there was a nice big window in the room, the inner room lighting was so poor. This was taken at the National Liberal Club, but unlike the images of the Club’s interior and detail I agree these do look nicer in black…I’m a sucker for high contrast!
