Ivan Doherty


Ivan has been a photographer for over 20 years about the same time he found himself in Tokyo. His professional work revolves around events which range from weddings, fashion to sporting events and increasingly guided photo-walks around this amazing city. His long history in Tokyo has made him a master of the backstreets of the metropolis.

In Tokyo, one can always be taken by surprise with what you see even after many years, there is never time to get bored in this fast-paced city. What he loves about shooting here is the difference you see as the city transforms from day into night and the precious opportunity to create vivid photos, which he likes to do. In 2017 he won an award for a cityscape shot with the Asahi Shimbun Newspaper’s national annual photography awards. (daily readership 6.5 million)

Reviews for Ivan

Excellent Photo Tour with Ivan ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I signed up for the night time three hour tour. Ivan met me on time at the appointed place. We had corresponded by e-mail in advance, so he knew my knowledge and experience level, and we were able to start right away. He took me to a series of locations, most of which I would have never found by myself during a short trip to Tokyo or perhaps ever. The tour was very efficient and well-planned in advance so that there didn't seem to be a wasted moment. We accomplished a lot in three hours.

At each location, we talked through composition and exposure. His guidance was appropriate and well-tailored to my experience level. I learned a lot! Ivan is also very personable, and I had a lot of fun spending three hours with him. I would highly recommend this tour and Ivan.
