Uni Fishing in Hokkaido

A few weeks ago, I had the chance to travel to the Shakotan Peninsula in Hokkaido, Japan to photograph sea urchin fishermen and the dishes that local restaurants are creating with the unique delicacy. I traveled from Sapporo to Otaru, and from Bikuni to Hakodate, shooting craggy, rock-strewn seascapes, chefs at well-known sushi haunts, uni straight from the water, and scenes of local life in all of the small towns along the way. Here are some of the outtakes from the trip. Visit my website for more travel photographs from across Asia.

From Otaru to Hokadate and few places in between, I spent a week traveling along the Shakotan Peninsula in Hokkaido, Japan for Travel+Leisure, photographing uni fishermen, craggy landscapes, and flashes of local flavor. Here are the tearsheets. I always love seeing a brilliant and beautiful layout using my images. So thanks to the whole team over at T+L SEA. Outtakes coming soon.
