I found Asano on Instagram as I was going on holiday to Japan for the first time and I wanted to set up some photoshoots. She was from Nara, so me and my boyfriend both went to Nara to meet and shoot her. It was hands down the highlight of the trip for me. Even though she barely spoke any English, she was one of the best models I’ve worked with so far. We were just on the same page, no words were needed.
