Still Life Hakkoda!

The yearly “Still Life” feature has been released on http://www.honeyee.com! Check it out. A double slide show feature from our trip to Hakkoda at the end of January and beginning of February. Honeyee.com and Detz always make the coolest design and layouts and I love being a part of the Still life trips! Thanks guys!

T-Tune T-House

Thanks to all who showed up for the slideshow at NAC last night. I was suprised and very happy to see so many people turn out to watch me show a few photos! A lot of foriegn faces showed up as well, which made me wonder if I should do my talking in Japanese or English of both…. Ended up doing the whole things in Japanese, so very sorry if some couldn’t understand what I was talking about. Have only done this slideshow style presentation a few times so I am still trying to work the bugs out, but it is a lot of fun. I used my very old slide projector and even showed a bunch of my old family photos that were given to me by my Mother.

As always I don’t have any photos from the event itself, I was too busy talking/setting up/DJing etc.,

After the event I ended up visiting Takeda (T-Tune) house and crashing on his sofa. A classic Niseko style vacation house that was built about 30 years ago. It had a lot of local flavor so I snapped a few photos to share with you here.







Check it out the movie selection at T-House, TB2, and Sapporo Classic beer!


Hayato and Yamauchi thanks to those guys for coming to every single event!  Appreciate the support guys!

The drive home this morning was quite nasty.  It was raining or snowing most of the way.  A slushy layer of crap was on  the roads and made the drive a swerving style affair.  My trusty camper was not liking it very much at all.

 




Niseko Slideshow tonight

Attention all Niseko residents!  I will be performing a slideshow and also DJing some music at N.A.C. tonight the 19th of December.  The store on the first floor is having a  family sale right now with lots of discounted gear.   The  Slideshow will be on the second floor in Jojo’s.  If you live or work in the area please stop by and say hi!

Friday is party time

Yesterday I packed up the car and made my way downtown to Concept  Shop
to set up for the event and party on the 17th.  I will be there from 3pm until 10pm so please stop by and say hi!  It is always a lot of work setting up for these events.  Big thanks to the staff and Tsukasa who stopped by as well to help out.  I think we did a good job of hanging the photos and decorating the store.  If you can’t make it out tomorrow then try to stop by before the end of the year as my photos will be on display until then!

There is going to be some good food and drink, Sachiko was there working hard to prepare some green curry, Tandori Chicken, salad and more.  Entrance is free!

みなさんお元気ですか?
いよいよ本格的な冬!12月の師走でお忙しいとは思いますが、札幌を代表するカメラマン「ニール・ハートマン」の写真集”BLUETiFUL(ブルーティフル)”の出版記念パーティをコンセプトショップにて行うことになりました!
ニールとは随分古くからの付き合いになりますが、アメリカ人でありながら札幌に根を張って早20年。私達ももうすぐ札幌に根をはって20年と、ほぼ同時期に札幌に魅せられてここを拠点にすることにした似たもの同士!
ニールとの会話の中で、せっかくの地元でのお披露目は、形式ばったものではなく楽しくにぎやかなパーティにしたいねという話しになりました。
そこで、今年最後のイベントはゲンテンスティックやマウンテンリサーチなど、”山”にまつわるショップ「ConceptShop by garage69」で楽しい企画満載で開催します!!
開催日は12月17日(金)午後15:00〜夜22時位(?)まで。翌日、山や海に行きたいスノーボーダーやサーファーに合わせた時間で企画しています!
お昼から夜にかけて、おいしい食事はもちろん、お酒を飲みながら皆で集まりませんか??
当日はニールのこれまでの映像を集めたスライドショーやニールやタクヤによるDJもあり!!
たくさんの人達が集い、知り合い、輪を広げる機会になると嬉しく思います!
エントランスはフリーです。どなたでも気軽に遊びにきてください!
待ってま〜す!
