Have you travelled alot? Favorite place except Japan? Ever been to Europe? Do you have any plans to come here?
I’ve traveled mostly in Japan. The only place I have been abroad is New Zealand. I would love to go to Europe and other countries but I don’t have the time right now
I have been a great fan of yours since Omocomo Issue 1.0 and I really love your work, all of your photoes are soo clean, what is your secret to shoot the â€˜perfectâ€™ photo?
I bought my camera without having any knowledge about photography, so I was just trying to get the thing working at first, and I still have a lot of things that I don’t know about taking photos. But the good thing was, I was still skating then so I was able to imagine the photo from the skaters perspective and the timing where the trick would look best.
Read the Omocomo Interview by Klas Olsson, featuring photos by Omocomo ; don’t miss the gallery at the bottom of the page.
-Let’s get on with the interview. First off tell us your name, age and years skating please-
Chiaki Ito. 27 years old. I’ve been skating since middle-school, so about 13 years.
-When you started, you lived in Osaka right?-
Yeah. The way I got into skating wasn’t at a skatepark. I was going to the rollerskate rink just to play around and saw inlineskates there. When the usual rollerskates had old-skool leather tops, the plastic shell of the inlineskates looked unbelievably cool to me at the time.
Check the Chiaki Ito Interview (nice photos inside !)
