Tokushimato Photo Writer List
Daisuke Chiba / Photo-writer
I was born in 1985 in Miyoshi City, Tokushima Prefecture, and now live in Tokushima City.
After graduating university, I worked at a publishing company as an editor for various mooks, and in April 2014 I went freelance. I work as a photographer, copy-writer and editor, but also do product development and other stuff as well. If anyone needs me, I can do anything! Except, in spite of my being from Tokushima, dancing – I’m really bad at dancing Awa Odori!
