FotoMoto was conceived by, Travis de Clifford, an Australian professional advertising & editorial photographer with over 20 years experience. His 5 years in tertiary photo education has also contributed to the idea of sharing the visual, cultural and historical beauty of Japan to adventurers and image makers of any level.
Travis, has travelled regularly to Japan over the past 15 years. In this time, he has also been visiting twice a year to continue his study of, Jissen Kobudo Jinenkan, a samurai art, with his teacher, Unsui sensei. These trips have exposed him to many cultural and scenic treasures of Japan.
As a motorcycle enthusiast, professional photographer and lover of Japan, he is now combining his passions in order to share them in this unique way.
This is not just another tour. This is a turning point in the lives of those who take the plunge to leave the routines and repetitions of their everyday lives.
FotoMoto Tours are lead personally by, Travis. His dream and passion for sharing this unique adventure is a personal undertaking, not just a business. His hope, is that each person comes away with a better understanding of their camera craft, their image capture skills and the beautiful and intricate traditions and cultures of Japan. Oh, and a hell of a time riding the amazing roads you'll find here!
