I am Callum, a 26-year-old director and cinematographer based in Tokyo, with roots tracing back to London where I spent my early years before moving to Japan.

Ever since I was a child, I've harbored a deep fascination with cameras and computers. It's a passion that has only grown stronger with time, shaping my path toward a career in filmmaking.

My formative years were spent in Tsubame Sanjo, Niigata, a region renowned for its metal craftsmanship. Surrounded by the meticulous work of artisans in the local factories, I found myself captivated by their dedication and skill. What began as a hobby soon evolved into a profession when one of the craftsmen entrusted me with documenting their craft.

Cinematography, for me, is more than just capturing images; it's about witnessing the passion of the subject firsthand. There's a profound satisfaction in telling the story of individuals who pour their heart and soul into their craft. It's in these moments that I find the greatest fulfillment in my work.
