Naoko Tsunoda was born in Kagawa Prefecture, Japan. When her husband’s work took him to America, she followed and resided in Texas and California for over 10 years. America’s majestic natural beauty greatly moved her and she became keenly aware of the importance of nature. Teaching herself photography in 2005, she developed a collection of landscape photographs. In 2010, she returned to Chiba, Japan where she continues her photographic work.

“I always converse with nature in my heart when exploring an area I hope to photograph. Nature listens, leads me to beautiful places, and shows me moments that literally shine. She always treats me warmly as I pursue my hard, lonely work as a nature photographer. It is my pleasure to share the work that nature and I have created together. I sincerely hope that such beautiful scenery will always be a part of the world.”
