Student Voices

I am what I am today, because I didn't give up studying what I've always wanted to do - "photography."


  • Haruka Fujimoto
    Postsecondary Course II (Evening) Photography Course 2 Year Curriculum
    Documentary Photo Seminar
    Attended Hokkaido University of Education, Sapporo Campus

Job Offered

Shoto Studio

Job Position

Studio Assistant

Why I chose this company

The key factor was that I really liked the atmosphere of the company, having talked to their staff members at interviews. By actually seeing and sensing the workplace, I thought that this is the place I want to work.

Classes that helped my job search

I think it was really helpful that my teacher reviewed my work when I was creating my portfolio. Electing to take the studio lesson (portrait) was also very helpful in getting to know the atmosphere of a studio shoot.

Most memorable class

There are many memorable classes, but with regards to my job search, I think that participating in the career support sessions held by the career center and receiving practical advice at the consultations before my search and after receiving a job was the best that I had done.

Building relationships and gaining experience in the frontlines, I aim to become an independent photographer

Most memorable class

The portfolio I created in class was useful in my job search and I'm glad to have elected a subject that provides that type of feedback.
