About Me

I am Tokyo based photographic artist (portrait photography / high-end photo retouching / photo manipulation & digital art / Japanese calligraphy body art / education). I mostly accept paid assignments only but I am an artist at heart and absolutely love working with inspiring models, so if you find my work appealing then do not be shy and drop me a message.

"Ponte is a photographer who captures not what is but what could be. To shoot with him, you need to be more than just a pretty face. Pretty faces are everywhere; you need energy, originality, and most of all you need to have a personality. If you lack any of these traits, he is not afraid to let you know. It’s more than just getting a good shot, he analyzes his models…it’s as if he is looking at your soul through his lens, which can be intense, but it unleashes something in you that you didn’t know existed. His raw energy tied with the passion he puts into his work are what makes him more than just a man with a camera, it makes him an artist. If you should be so lucky to shoot with him, don’t ever mention ‘glamour shots’ ☺." Read less

"Working with Ryuu is a lot of fun. The shoot went smoothly, regardless of the weather, and we were able to find a lot of creative areas that ended up looking awesome in the photos. He knows exactly what looks best in photos and what he wants from them, whether it's utilizing lights and shadows, textures or geometry in the environment, or angles that look more appealing in the model's poses. He's very professional and yet has a great sense of humor which is a great ice breaker if you meet him for the first time. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for professional photos and for those looking for an easy going shoot. The photo results are gorgeous and I look forward to working with him again."
