Born in Yokohama, Japan, Phoenix-based photographer Takashi Sato has almost three decades of acclaimed commercial photography experience.  While attending a university for his Graphic Design degree, he found his passion in photography and began assisting well-established national and international level photographers.  Soon after graduating from a university, he began shooting numerous advertising projects locally, nationally, and internationally.  He loves to shoot portrait, lifestyle, and action photography on location and in the studio.

"Takashi Sato is simply an amazing photographer. From the simplest request to the most complex concept, Tak consistently delivers beautiful results with a creative edge. Technically astute and up to date with all the latest gear yet steeped in old-school film knowledge, Takashi brings an incredible amount of experience to bear with every assignment. Having worked with him for over ten years and hundreds of jobs, I can say that there are very few photographers in his class."

He is reliable, excellent at taking your concepts and turning them into stunning photographs.

Takashi, not only knows his “stuff” when it comes to photography, but he’s fun to work with and very professional.

I use Takashi for ALL my photography needs and will continue to do so.  Actually, I will be using him again in the near future to update my pics once again and to keep things fresh and fun…he just doesn’t know it yet.

So, if you are looking for someone who has a TON of knowledge and firsthand experience with capturing that special moment, or to make you look your best, I strongly NCOURAGE you to consider hiring Takashi for your photography needs. He will go above and beyond to make sure you are happy with your photos.
