Fuka Akino is a revered photographer, with a passion for sharing his knowledge and understanding of the photographic art. As a professional, Akino doesn't see photography as merely pushing a button; for him, it's a complex and beautiful art form that can't be encapsulated in simple instructions or rules. He has met many individuals who, despite having learned about photography in the past, are still unable to fully understand or utilize their camera's capabilities.

Many people believe that once they have mastered the camera's operation, good photographs will naturally follow. However, Akino believes this is a misconception. In the constantly changing environment of a shoot, where every subject and setting is different, making judgments that suit each specific situation is crucial. To do so, one needs to establish a solid foundation in the basics, enabling them to make creative decisions independently. This, in Akino's view, is the first crucial step towards improving as a photographer.

Through his online courses offered via "Alt Focus," Akino hopes to aid individuals in progressing at their own pace. He encourages his students to learn steadily and utilize their knowledge to enhance their photographic skills.
