This is me

I’m Alice Watanabe. I live in Oxford, UK, with my parter Simon. My day-job is managing websites, digital content and multimedia. I take photographs every day – for my work this is usually portraits or event photography, outside work I love to photograph landscapes. I most often use my Canon 5D MKII DSLR.

I studied Fine Art in London at Chelsea College of Art and Design and Central St Martins. I am British, my family background is Japanese, German and Irish.

I am currently not updating this site very often but you can always find me on Instagram.


Travel is one of my favourite things to do. For family (and fun) reasons I often go to Japan, Ireland, and Berlin, as well as visiting new places whenever possible.

Where is the old content?

I have had a blog since the early 2000’s. After a 14 month break from April 2013 to July 2015 I decided to come back to sharing my pictures here, as and when. I started afresh, archiving the 10 years of content as the old site felt bloated with the old content not necessarily reflecting me any more, nor the landscape of the internet as it now. If there is anything useful that you want back, feel free to contact me.
