Kageaki is a Bermudian Tokyo based photographer. Mention that because I had gone to Bermuda and regretted not consulting him haha. But his work is just really meditative and technically executed in areas of portraiture and landscape. Check his links below and ALSO, check the legend he provided of the gear and film he used to take the photos adding to the sentiment about his technical process.
