Hiro Kobayashi

Originally from Akita, Japan. Hiro is a graduate of the City College of New York, where he encountered the art of photography. He spends most of his time in the studios around Tokyo and Asia, and is delivering stunning photographic visuals on a daily basis.

Soon after graduation from the college, Hiro became an assistant for a New York-based still life photographer, Sylvere Azoulai (2A, 2A by Sylvere). He learned an exceptional lighting skill to draw elegant lines in a photographic image by strobe lights.

In 2010, Hiro moved to Tokyo and became an assistant for Takahito Sato, a leading advertisement photographer in Japan. In the following year, Hiro created his own studio in Tokyo. Working together with Elite Photography in Hong Kong, he expanded his career to Asia in 2012.
