HI, I'm mariko!

I am a freelance writer and photographer based in the Pacific Northwest. My Photography and music-based writing has appeared in Vancouver Weekly, Folk Radio UK, The Spill Magazine and Vandala Magazine.

I also write research related articles as a ghost writer for other online publications.

I really get a thrill out of capturing the candid moments that speak to the identity of my subject in a given time and place. There is magic in those moments.

Perhaps you are here because you want to contribute to one of my projects or you just want to say hi. That's cool, too.

You can always scroll down to email me directly or connect on social media.

I share web quality digital images with artists that I photograph on a donation only basis. If you’d like to contribute, please click on the Contribute button below.
