Koichiro Doi, born in Tokyo, studied fashion design before shifting his focus to photography. His main passion was for still life, but he acquired technical techniques and skills in beauty photography as well.
He studied fashion at Parsons School of Design before realizing that it was actually photography he aspired to pursue. Upon his return to Tokyo he began to shoot and develop his own techniques, without any formal training. Seeing his portfolio and the roster of cutting edge brands and companies he has worked with, it is easy to see he has mastered the craft of beauty and still life photography.
Doi shoots for numerous magazines such as Vogue Nippon, Harpers Bazaar Japan, Frech Magazines, Numéro and Spur. Doi now works between Tokyo and Paris.
