Our Principles

  1. To give more people around the world the chance to have a family photo with all their family members together.
  2. To protect precious memories from all accidents and disasters.

EN-LIGHTENMENT sells artworks (including services) in order to realize our business philosophy. Please think of the fee you pay as your participation fee for the “work”.

We are committed to a lasting relationship with our clients. Ideally, we would like to become a little old man relative to you and your family.

All of our photo shoots are accompanied by prints or an album.

Our shoots are generally on location. Studio or simple set-up photography is optional.

You can use all of our services as a gift. We will entertain the recipient with our whole heart and soul.

Memberships apply to photography menu prices. Please click here for more details.

With a few exceptions, photography is intended to be published as a “work of art” through media such as websites, photo exhibitions, and photo books. However, we will give the utmost consideration to your privacy.

If you are looking for a photographer who values speed from shooting to production and delivery, please find another photographer.

If you have any questions, we will try to resolve them in a preliminary meeting (free of charge, cancellation possible at this point). If photography is not your thing, don’t worry.

Bussiness Trip Fee

  • In principle, the bussiness trip fee are calculated based on public transportation costs starting from Mizuguchi Matsuo Station on the Omi Railway in Koka City, Shiga Prefecture.
  • Depending on the amount of time the photographer is bound, including travel, accommodation and, if necessary, lodging expenses will be charged separately.
  • If a vehicle is required, additional costs will be incurred.
  • All of these will be clarified at the meeting and quotation stage.
  • Cancellation in the initial meeting is free of charge.


All copyrights and moral rights belong to the copyright holder. No photos may be published on the web or social networking services without the copyright holder’s permission (=infringement of moral rights and publication rights), nor may they be used for any commercial purpose. This does not apply to limited private use, such as printing New Year’s cards or private prints, just to be clear.

Commercial use and transfer of copyrights are possible, but will be a separate option. Commercial use includes publication or announcement on the Internet or social networking services, even if it is for the general public.

We will not tolerate copyright infringement for any reason. Penalties as stated in our Privacy Policy will be imposed immediately.

The right of portrait belongs, of course, to the subject of the photo. The existence of publicity rights shall be discussed and agreed upon at the time of the meeting.

We look forward to your participation in the work of family photographer Jousuke Hamano and EN-LIGHTENMENT PHOTOGRAPHY.

Wedding Photo Shooting

Currently, we do not accept any wedding photography by existing wedding halls, hotels, or wedding production companies, as they do not meet our service standards.

We will only accept wedding photography, including photo weddings and engagement photos (i.e., wedding photos in plain clothes), if the wedding itself can be produced and directed by us.

We will try to answer any questions you may have at our preliminary meeting (free of charge, cancellation possible at this point). If you are not good at photography, don’t worry.

Approximate fee ¥55,000~ (tax included)

Family Photo Shooting

We will come to your place for on-site photo shooting.

Even though the casual everyday life at home, at the neighborhood park, or on family vacations make up the majority of family memories, they are the ones that do not remain in a tangible form. We help you create precious family memories where everyone is together, not where the whole family cannot be together because one of the family members is the photographer.

We will try to answer any questions you may have at the preliminary meeting (free of charge, cancellation is possible at this point). If you are not good at photography, don’t worry.

Approximate fee ¥55,000~

Family History Album

Many of you have a clutter of data and prints of your precious memories.

We will compile a family history of your family by mixing your own photos, photos taken by other studios and photographers, and photos taken by our family photographer, Hamano.

This service is recommended at the transitional point of a family member’s life, such as graduation, coming of age, leaving the nest, or getting married.

We can help you pass on your family history to the next generation and the one after that.

Approximate fee: Deposit ¥33,000 and up, album fee not included (basic album of 10 or more pages)

Portrait, Profile Photo Shooting

Whether you are looking for business profile photos or promotional photos as an artist, we will bring out the best in you.

We do not provide costumes, hair and makeup. Please use your favorite hair salon or barber store.

Based on counseling, we will shoot at a location that maximizes your personal appeal.

If studio photography is required, a separate option fee will be charged.

We will try to answer any questions you may have at the preliminary meeting (free of charge, application can be cancelled at this point). If you are not good at photography, don’t worry.

Approximate fee fee ¥55,000~

Secret Private Photo Shooting

We place the highest priority on your privacy and have a system in place to ensure total confidentiality.

These are special menus recommended for celebrities and athletes whose portrait rights are controlled, or for those who wish to keep their personal information confidential due to unavoidable circumstances.

Approximate fee: From ¥110,000

Art Photography by JoJo

Art photography by the family-themed photographers Jousuke Hamano, and a mysterious Jousuke Miyake (JoJo.Miyake). Prints and photo books will be released and sold as needed.

Jousuke Hamano creates art photography works on the theme of family as JoJo Hamano. His motifs vary from landscapes to flowers.

Jousuke Miyake’s work as JoJo Miyake is not limited to family themes, but covers a wide range of genres.
