For nearly four decades,
We have been dedicating ourselves to capturing
the greatest moments in sports on film.
Through the sports photography,
we explore the relationships between
"Men and Sports" and
"Community/Society and Sports"
in search of identifying
the true meaning of "SPORTS".


Artistic beauty of bodies in motion impresses us with bountiful presence of life. The forms and colors of sports are visual music to us all.
When an athlete challenge to apex of his body and mind, we see and appreciate the highest moment in sports.
The most human emotions are revealed at the moment of triumph and defeat.
Long hours and hard training make truly great athletes, and the efforts are deeply carves on their faces and expressions form which we learn so many things.
Graceful performance and super plays are all results of long and hard training. There, we see another side of sports.
They love athletes, and athletes reply to the cheering.
Together they make the moment an exciting experience.
Sports are fun for all. Through the sports, there are communications and healthy human relationships.
Fashion in sports is another aspect that is a feast for our eyes.


We believe that a continuous advancement of sports is precious and important in this world.
We wish for all mankind that our works may lead up to opportunities for participation in, and enjoyment of any sports.
