Yasui

Anyone can pick up a camera, but it takes a certain level of artistic talent to produce the kinds of photos that you’ll see below.

The work of Japanese photographer Takashi Yasui has been exploding in popularity on major Western websites recently, and for good reason. Yasui has a knack for capturing tranquil moments of time in both the natural world and urban cityscapes in his native Japan. In particular, he’s a master at manipulating light during dawn and dusk, adding an almost otherworldly quality to his vistas. Now take a moment to sit back and relax in order to completely appreciate the scope of Yasui’s craft.

Yasui’s online profile states that he became immersed in photography in 2010, and his art particularly took off once he discovered Instagram. Earlier this year, he founded photography company RECO and became a full-time freelancer and web writer. His professional website also states:

“Hi. My name is Takashi Yasui. Freelance photographer based in Kyoto, Osaka, Tokyo. Photography is a more of a pleasure, it is a passion. Feel free to contact me.”

Readers may also be interested to know that individuals can also book private portrait sessions with Yasui for approximately 10,000 yen (US$83) per hour.

Let’s take a look now at some of his idyllic photos. All of these and many, many more can be viewed on his official Instagram and Facebook accounts. Enjoy!
