I have acted as advisor on 18 TV documentaries and one major feature film.  If you are considering a project involving Japan - not just samurai, but art, gardens, religion etc - contact me to find out how I can help.

I am always more than willing to advise on school or university projects, but no requests for interviews, please!


 Japan Archive is the trade name my picture library which holds 35,000 images of Japan: history, art, architecture, gardens etc., and an extensive stock of pre-modern Europe, Southeast Asia and East Asia.

All the pictures on this site are mine, and here are some others from my vast collection. 

I do not have a catalogue, so please e-mail me about your requirements and I will send examples.
