The Summer of 2016 was an interesting time for me. Amidst a lot of changes in my life, I was contacted by a marketing company working with Sony's mobile phone division. They proposed sending me a new Sony Xperia Xperformance phone, giving me a budget, just to take three photos and three videos for the new phone's launch campaign.

That was it, just get out and take some photos, escape a bit, see old friends, it sounded like a plan. Flights booked, a rough plan to spend most of the campaign in Japan, exploring. While only three photos were required for Sony I shot a few hundred with the Xperia. Here are 150 of my favorites.

All of the photos in the album linked below were shot with the Sony Xperia X Performance.
