AsukaBook Video & Album Design Spotlight
Jennifer Fujikawa Photography

AsukaBook is proud to shine the spotlight on our customers! We love the great images these photographers capture and the high standards they set in the industry.

Studio Spotlight - Jenifer Fujikawa Photography I come from a family of artists...I have a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts Degree in Entertainment Arts. I had a rigorous college career studying all types of art and I specialized in animation. I worked at Cartoon Network for several years but realized even though I loved story-telling, animation wasn't my passion. When I decided to take my hobby of photography seriously as a career, it was then all the pieces fell into place...I take a hands-on approach to create my images, using my artistic training to guide my clients and tell their unique stories....One day, their heirs will be looking at their photos too, reliving precious memories, keeping their love story alive.

5 Days of Hands-On Portrait & Lighting Training with Kevin Kubota

Kevin Kubota 2018 Santa Fe Workshop
Have you ever been to Santa Fe, NM? Last year I went there for the first time to teach a class for the highly acclaimed Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. I was thoroughly impressed with not only the beauty and art in Santa Fe, but with the quality and attention to detail the school directors put in to everything that happens there. It was one of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve had teaching anywhere!

This spring, I’ll be back again teaching a class called Lighting Made Simple. This is going to be a great class for any photographer looking for easy and elegant solutions to just about any lighting challenge. We’ll work with natural light, and easy-to-carry speedlights with versatile light modifiers, to beautifully illuminate whatever subject happens to sit before you.

At Santa Fe, we use a wide variety of stunning locations and patient models – so you will likely get some strong portfolio pieces from the work you do there with me. You’ll have ample opportunities to try and ingrain the techniques I’ll teach, and we’ll have daily reviews to keep you moving towards improvement.

Class size is kept small for lots of hands-on instruction. Interested in joining me? This could be just the working vacation you needed!
