Cosplay Modeling Mayhem with Phoenix Films!

Hi guys, Zach here!

Summer is over, and as Halloween creeps closer and closer, I had a chance to reflect on the busy summer I had, both with my company, and with the studio opening up, and with photography.
I was hired by my friend Grisky to take cosplay photos at Tokyo Game Show this year, and this year Grisky stole the cosplay show with his amazing rendition of Dante from Devil May Cry 5.

The photos I posted on Twitter were even recognized by the developers of the Devil May Cry series. It was quite an honor meeting the devs at the event, too.

Grisky is quite the talent, but so is DJ Maia, a renowned Tokyo DJ and Model, who asked me to take photos of her during a recent trip to Enoshima.

DJ Maia is a regular at Ele Tokyo, spinning to the best crowds in Tokyo.

Spending time doing photography this summer were quite the learning experience, and really got my creativity pumping. I’ve set out to learn more and improve my photography skills, and have listed the company on Model Mayhem, the world’s most renown model and photography database site. Have a look at my company’s page here at this link.

If you’re interested in hiring me out for some photography, please send me an email at, with the type of photography you’d like me to do.

Enjoy the photos, and have a great day!

Portfolio: Kojo Apple Emergency Light

This is a video commissioned by Kojo Industries, a very good client of mine. Featuring a model from Aomori and the music of another Aomori native, this video features an intriguing product displayed recently by Kojo at a number of events around Japan-an Aomori Apple-shaped emergency light.

I used color correction techniques to give this video a natural, relaxed feel, the same feeling one would get when visiting Aomori. Shot in one day in Akihabara with Kojo staff present, this was quite a learning experience for me, yet I still feel I taught a lot of people a number of things about videography that day.

Enjoy the video. If you’d like your own product showcased in cinematic form, contact me at
