US visa Photography Session
I recently asked Mr Hide Ikeda, to take photographs to specific specifications for a USA Visa. I was rather surprised at the trouble Hide took to ensure my pose was correct, and after taking nine shots he produced a shot (Lighting, shadow, head size and position) which in our opinion met all the requirements of the USA State Departments guidelines. I found the experience of being photographed by a very professional person so easy being his subject. I have no problems recommending "HIDE" for your photographic needs.

Product Photography Session
I recently employed Hide for taking some photographs for my Ecommerce website and I have to say I was highly impressed with his service and dedication. He made an initial appointment to discuss my needs and the specific photographs required and then we discussed and agreed upon a price. We then arranged a photo shoot day, after him supplying me several different available time slots. Not only was he photographing my product, but as it was dog car seats, was also working with two dogs. He was very patient and made sure that I was happy with everything being done and did not move onto another shot or angle, until I was completely happy. During this time he made sure that I was comfortable and supplied us with bottled water. We also moved to an outside area after taking inside studio shots. This was my first time using a professional photographer for my product and Hide far exceeded my expectations. He responded to all correspondence promptly and keep in touch, throughout the whole process. After the photo shoot, he sent through several different options of each product and angle being photographed and then I selected my preference of specific photos, which were then photo shopped and edited to my requests. I ended up getting a lot more photos than discussed and quoted for within the designated budget and was thrilled with the outcome. I would not hesitate to recommend Hide to anyone who is looking for a professional photographer.
Product Photography Session
Hide took photos of a product I am selling on Amazon.
We did two on-location shoots and Hide also took photographs of the product on a white background, adding graphics to one of them explaining the various features of the product.
All of the photos are extremely professional looking.
His friendly personality put the models at ease and his creativity lead to several eye catching shots which we will use.
He had a chance to show off his considerable Photoshopping skills when I asked him to change the colour of a whole shirt to show the product better!
You would never know to look at it! He was also very mindful of ensuring the product's logo was visible in all shots which was appreciated, as was his customer service.
He always answers his phone, or texts soon after to let you know when he will call back. It's little things like this that make working with someone easy.
I am delighted to have found Hide and have already recommended him to others, and will use him again.
Product Photography Session
I got Hide to take professional photos of my small snow cone business kits!
Hide was very professional and knew exactly what to do to capture that perfect shot, his attention to detail was second to none.
Once the photo shoot was over, i was very impressed how fast he edited the photos and delivered them to me, just a couple of days later!
I give Hide a 10/10 and will definitely use again when I'm ready to take photos of my next small business kit!
Thanks again Hide 🙂

Hide provided a wonderful service, taking a variety of passport photos complying with all the necessary photograph specifics as per Australian passport requirements. He even had the insight to take photos without spectacles, fortunately. Everything went without a hitch & I am now in possession of a passport with a wonderful photograph of myself. Hide's polite & cheerful manner made the process pleasant & quick. Thanking you for a great service.

I have worked with Hide-San twice now, once for a Magazine photo shoot and just recently for a traditional Japanese Kimono photo shoot. Hide-San is extremely professional and very considerate. He understands that it can become tiresome and offers refreshments as well as short breaks while he looks through the photos. He also made sure I was happy with the photos before continuing by showing me after each interval of photo taking. He is very helpful by suggesting different ways of posing to create a range of images as well as giving feedback as he is taking the photos to let me know I am on the right track. He is very professional and relaxed and makes it a very enjoyable experience. I am so happy with my most recent images I received from him so I would highly recommend him to anyone who is considering getting any sort of photos done!
Thank you Hide-San!
Hide is the ultimate professional. He is very accommodating, he is patient and a perfectionist. I used his services for passport photos and I was very pleased with the end result. His studio is comfortable and he provides refreshments. He guides you through the session with ease and makes you feel relaxed. He will keep taking photographs, allowing you to preview them on his tablet, until you are happy. If you are the kind of person who is picky about how you look in photos, then Hide is the person for you! He also does touch-ups at a nominal fee and sends the photos by registered mail after you choose your preferred photo; the photos were in my hands within a few days. Outstanding service at a reasonable price!

I was more than happy with your work! You are very considered and very detailed! The perfection that you have is very important, you made sure that the photos are to my satisfaction, actually even more to your satisfaction! Finding dusts on my products I had no idea about, you have noticed and fixed it, I call it honest! It is unbelievable how much is involved in getting the pictures right. All your gear is very professional and you organised everything before my arrival, so we could get started right away. Thanks for the water, as I said you are very considered:)
I would highly recommend you as a very professional photographer and thank you very much for your amazing and very quick work! I now can proudly show my products to my clients!
