Kendo Pics 剣道写真

I must apologise to kenshi 24/7 readers for not writing any articles recently: I’m currently crazy busy with work (and keiko of course!) at the moment and can’t find the time to read and write as usual. So, rather than not updating the site, I thought I’d share some of my pictures.

I wrote briefly about my sojourns into kendo photography over three years ago, and I’ve shared quite a lot of my pictures here and there on this site over the years since. Although I’d consider myself as an average photographer at best, I do enjoy the particular challenge that shooting kendo brings, and very occasionally I actually do take a picture that I think is better than average!

With almost 70,000 kendo pictures sitting on my hard drives, I think I should probably be more liberal with sharing them. I recently got a new camera body and a nice shiny new zoom lens, so lets see if I can manage that this year.

Anyway, in the meantime, here are a handful of pictures for you to (hopefully) enjoy!

  1. Honestly, George, in my opinion you shot one of the best sports picture ever: the flying shinai at the kyoto taikai.
