I worked at a nature film production in early 1990's. I was in the last generation operating Super 16mm for High Vision TV. Then I was abroad to England to do volunteer caring for disable people. MY boss asked me to work as permanently but my friend also asked me to Join an international NGO, MSF of audio visual section filming its activities in the world. I thought I can "indirectly"help "many people" with filming although a carer can "directly" help "only one person". I chose working for MSF in 1998 (before Nobel piece prize).
In 2003, I focused on children working for another NGO , KnK Japan (Children without Borders) as PR with filming and photography, then I expanded my field of photography showing in public to contribute to magazines as a professional photographer in 2015.
