When I first got my studio equipment, my friend’s Gareth and Maki, agreed very kindly to be my guinea pigs; and modelled for me in their traditional Japanese costumes. Gareth at least wore this same costume for his wedding to Maki, in Japan. Maki however, I think had a more elaborate Kimono but they looked very splendid indeed in their traditional dress…

Gareth also showed me his Ken Jutsu (or sword work) which he is something of a master of, being trained in the art of Kaze Arashi Ryu.
