Mariko T.

The first model I photographed in Kyoto, Mariko T. is a woman I met on Zamami a month ago and proposed photographing to.  I left her with my email and website information and a little hope - and a week later she emailed saying she'd like to photograph.  We met in Gion near dusk, which is a beautiful backdrop for a yukata shoot.  Interestingly enough, a couple of times hordes of geisha-seeking tourists gathered around the end of our alley and photographed us.  I think they thought I was a professional or she was famous or something.  At one point there were 25 people all snapping pictures of us.
