We, photographers at Reuters, usually work outside the office.
In truth, we will go anywhere which is likely to guarantee worthy news stories and stunning visual images.
Therefore, the list of our working places is as various as our pictures.
You might find us somewhere like the middle of a violent demonstration, miles away from a crippled nuclear power plant releasing nuclear radiation, on the deck of an aircraft carrier or on the roof of the Olympic stadium…..
To witness the historical moments and pursue capturing stunning images, we’ve happily thrown away the comfort of working in the luxurious Reuters office.
Therefore, my office, the Reuters news room in Tokyo, has been regarded as the last place where I can do shooting assignments, and I used to joke with my colleagues that the only thing I usually do in the office is make expense reports.
But I found out that my joke was totally wrong when I covered the Reuters Rebuilding Japan Summit this week and I discovered the office is a place full of potential colorful images.
