D1GP Exhibition round in Odaiba Tokyo last weekend. After traveling to Japan for many years this was actually my first time present at a D1GP event. Prior to this I had been up in the Kanto region for the past week shooting more grassroots style events and enjoying just being back in the country and taking it all in.

Meeting up with Naoki, Miki & Shane from Kansai to do my best to get some shots and help out where I could over the weekend to support the re- entering of D1GP again for 2019 for Nakamura Naoki.

The first few years I ever got into photography I always looked up to some of the hightest, visually aesthetic and artistic people such as Darren Heath, Yuta Sasaki and still to this day would love to be a professional in F1 or GT500. With that being said I thought D1GP with its day and night scenes, higher level of professionalism with teams, pits, colourful cars and packed out crowds I could go back a few years with some thoughts and creations and try pushing some limits with MF and low speeds and make some scenes with my camera.

I won’t carry on too much as I like to keep writing to a minimal. The below photos are in order from early Friday morning at FNATZ (Nakamura Naoki’s) newest sponsor for the D1GP season with the owner being very well known for 2JZ engine building which suits the S15 perfectly. Giving I am present in Japan I hope to make it to more D1GP events this year.

if you follow my instagram i mentioned 2 weeks ago today that i would be residing in japan over the next few months to come to somewhat of a conclusion if this is the country for me to live in full-time or not. with Australian residents we’re granted access to a working holiday visa which initially allows you 6 months in japan which can be renewed 3 times, totalling 1 and a half years. 

2 weeks later and i am somewhat grounded and straight back into my daily routines. the past 1.5 weeks have been spent up north in the tokyo region traveling and shooting as much as possible. this time of the year in japan is usually flourishing with car events and practice days at many circuits on the weekends along with week days too. i traveled as far north as fukushima to link circuit, utsunomiya for nikko circuit and sports land yamanashi in yamanashi prefecture which is located somewhat behind mt fuji. in-between events i have just been enjoying driving around with andrew date in his blue 180SX and this little S14 i picked up to drive for a few weeks to then be sold to a fellow Australian too moving over to japan late next month.

for now im awaiting a few more things to arrive from home and i’ll be able to get into some more editing and frequent blog posts (hopefully once a week). firstly will be my coverage and vision from D1GP last weekend in odaiba. casey xxx
