Seriously…every shot is just stunning 😭👏🏻 Well done, so worth the wait! 💕
So here is my entry. Haha. My favourite chapter is At The World’s End. So serene. So peaceful. Very refreshing, relaxing. Oddly enough, I am reminded of when I started following you. I think it was when I was in uni. And I am talking about 2008. 😂😂 I was in nursing school and when I was asked what I would have been if I weren’t going to be a nurse, I’d answer, I’d be a blogger. And that’s because I’ve already been a fan! 😂😂 check this link…I don’t know if you remember but in June or July 2011… https://m.facebook.com/notes/vincent-peji/a-prize-to-give-an-analysis-of-the-dos-and-donts/212522575456633/#
Anyway yeah. I like how that chapter seem to bring about peace in me.
That’s why I’ve fallen in love with it. Among all others.
Can i just win the 4/5th place? 🤣🤣🤣 so desperate to get your book. I love chapter 3&4 because it’s basically my thoughts right now. I guess as we grow older, the problem that we have to face is no longer from external, but mostly are our internal problems. Identity, mind, heart. It just keep revolving on those things but i think we grow to deal with it as time goes by
Hey there, I’ve seen these photos last night and it leave me speechless. How could someone living their live just like a fantasy? But after all,i know there’s some struggle and much tears to living your current life,right? Thank for the great content you’ve ever made. I adore you and your art♥
Oh,and merry Christmas. Huge hug for you and your lovelies
The shots are really gorgeous.. make me feel like travelling to those countries.. this book prob help Iceland gain another 60,000 tourists.. Haha.. would you mind if I saved some of those photos for my screensaver?

It took some time but here’s everything I have to say about “Portraitist Book of Wonders” by @yutakis !
Even if you guys don’t want to listen to me ramble on, please go to his profile and click the link to his website, check out the whole thing, there is so much beautiful and sentimental content in each chapter.
This post touches on my thoughts on some of the chapters
PS. You probably noticed I kept the intro page as a side on each photo, it’s just so chilling and beautiful that I wanted to keep it there! Very beautiful start into the book.
I followed your blog since 2014 more or less, I love your work, awesome eyecatching photos and you’re a graphic designer as well!
You’re so inspiring! Every single photograph is a piece of art, love every single detail.
My favourite chapters (I couldn’t choose just one) are “At the Worlds End” / “Broken wings” and “A Ride by Air” the concept, location, colors and the production is breathtaking, everything is so aesthetic pleasing. ❤️❤️❤️
I am still trying to catch my breath form all the beauty of this new edition 💕 if you allow me, I must think of a proper answer to be worthy of trying to have a piece of your inspirational work! But before I post my essay on why I would love to own a bit of your magical creation, I just want to put my little bit of support and kind words out there 😍😍😍 your aesthetic is truly an inspiration that should be for the world to see 🙇🏾♀️❤️💕
he whole book is just full of beautifull chapters 😍, but if I really have to choose one, it‘ll be ‘XIV Rose in december’. The reason for that is because it’s really aesthetic and because you’re just really goodlooking😜. I truly love the soft, peacefull and editorial look the portraits has. Also the main color white is simple but really artistic. December is also just a wholesome month, isn’t it 😉? Besides that I also adore the rose, that’s also the reason I started following Yutakis, the soft aesthetic floral boy. Reading the book was pleasing and there we’re some enchanting moments. I think you’re an really genuine, conciouss and gratefull person. But next to that you’re also really creative and hardworking, that’s what really inspires me. I really enjoy following your journey and respect you for sharing that (because I don’t think it’s easy). I’m also doing self-portraits by my own and your photo’s are my ultimate goal. By this time I actually don’t really care anymore if I’ve won it or not. I’m already really gratefull, for you reading this and realizing people rappreciate your hard work and you really inspire others! ❤️
hv always been loving ur photography works and they had always inspired me ❤️ wish to own this photobook to support my 男神!!😍 madmadlove chapter/03 I CAME FROM THE SEA and chapter/16 PRINCE OF THE WOODS❤️❤️ #portraitistbookofwonders
Pick me please! I love every single chapter because they are all blood and sweat of yours! 🖤
3) I love chpt 1 blue awakening because is SPECIAL & FILLED WITH LOTS OF YOUR EFFORT ❤️ –
Chapter 4 – other side of the black beach. ☺️ although I would say all chapters are my favourite but if I must pick one. Chapter 4 will be it. As it resonates with me the most. We must always 当自己 活在当下. Cause at the end of the day, those that matters to us don’t care about all the other things that ppl bicker about. 😊
Below is my entry for your giveaway!
Hellos! Kind of late in joining the giveaway but here I go!
My favourite chapters would be Chapter 4, OTHER SIDE OF THE BLACK BEACH and Chapter 17, 200FT TALL.
The reason being as I come from the media line as well, I totally understand how heartbreaking and overwhelming the industry can get and I’m sure the media industry isn’t the only one industry that is the toughest but it’s a industry that is always evolving and changing and that really breaks your heart when you constantly have to chuck out content to clients and people a personality that you don’t actually show in real life but through the screens of our phones.
Not forgetting the fact that sometimes to make our lives easier, we pretend to be someone we aren’t in real life, giving others the impression that you’re a certain kind of person and it isn’t the true you.
And that is why when I was approaching chapter 4, I felt a deep connection to it, as I am / was always on the crude receiving end of things such as situations where I didn’t want to be in, forced to pretend everything is ok and that it didn’t affect me like it should have.
It broke me, badly. It was probably the worse episode in my life where I experienced betrayals and such, and that I had to take a step back, breath and find out what is my self worth? Getting into self care mode and knowing what I need was definitely hard but I’m still working on it, hey that shows I’m growing hehe.
Moving on, it also made me understand that these situations actually occurred due to those personas I have different people and that shows that nobody is perfectly pure and not dirty / ugly and that our actions are reflected based on how we treat others as well.
We will never truly stop learning and will always continue to grow, as well as truly understand human emotions.
My favorite is Chapter 3, it has a sort of melancholy look while being beautiful and fantastical too. Your look is regal yet disheveled and it just makes for a perfect combination and perfect unique aesthetic~
Chapter 5 because I love that vintage aesthetic. It rlly feels like you are transported to some other time and place ❤️
I HOPE YOU’RE SUPER WELL. I’ve been silently cheering you on! on that note, happy happy belated new year to you and Schatz ( you’re very private about your love life, so I got his name from the book (: )
This is my entry for your giveaway! (sorry im shy to post on social media ): actually I don’t post anything anymore)
Anyways! My favourite chapters of Potraitist’s Book of Wonders are;
Chapter 2 – At the worlds end. Turkey. This chapter resonated a lot with me. Maybe it was the colours? Or maybe it was either the picture where you’re looking above and we can see your silhouette or the third picture which looks like you’re skipping on water.
Chapter 16 – Prince of the Woods. China. This has yet to be my favourite chapter because of how you created a wood crown and your poses for the pictures. For me it is the most elegant and majestic.
Chapter 9 & 23 – A ride by Air / Float Away. Turkey. This is cause the use of the colours in the photos, as well as I guess a message of ‘don’t stress too much and let life take its course’. You look very hopeful in those photos.
There’s something serene about each chapter that is enchanting… plus.. I think you’re super beautiful!
The fact that you’ve found your true self and that you portrayed it through your book is beautiful. It speaks a lot. It is raw and genuine. Each chapter is like a story, a story which shows the beauty of each element that you used. It is beyond captivating.
Thank you! You’ve worked really hard on this book!
Thank you for also mentioning to us not to compare ourselves with other people. You’re beyond right. It’s also easy to say to get over a problem when we all know sometimes it’s really hard.
Take care yutaki! Enjoy Japan!
Chapter 6 ‘Found rainbow along the way’ sometimes in life we have sunny bright day sometimes we have cloudy and stormy day happened in our life, but if we just determined to keep going forward and moving on, the storms too will pass and rainbows will come after..the title itself inspired me so much 😊🌈🌈🌈 thank you for the beautiful slice of life story you shared with us 🌝
Chapter 1, simply because I love blue ofc! And you looked absolutely stunning in those photos with only your face out of the water. If it were me, I’d looked as if I was drown (with one eye closed bcs of the water that got into my eye rofl) you nailed it so perfectly tho 😌 It’s truly beautiful! 💙
Chaprer 3, I instantly thought of my mom when I saw this ‘whenever you are, where home truly is. Love you forever’..’I came from the sea’ to me is like I came from inside of her just like all of us, and the part where you laid on the stone is like a scene from a mermaid comic book where she had to sacrifice her life to give birth to her daughter. Thank you for unintentionally reminding me to be a good daughter and a better person to my mom as without her I’d be nothing 😭 What you did is really truly beautiful! You literally have caught our hearts with this inspirational book! 💞
Last but not least I’d say Chapter 9! At first glance I instantly love it! Why? Because I love love loveeee hot air balloons and have always wanted to ride one! I’ve never seen so many hot air balloons in one shot and it was so close too! When they were in the air it really looks like lanterns from Enchanted disney movie, that is another level of photography there! Be-YOU-tiful!
I know I said beautiful a lot like literally in every chapters I mentioned, but it’s really how I feel when I see it. Thank you for your efforts and time to do this book of portraits 😭 and thank you for the giveaway too ofc! May you and all of us be happy always! ❤️❤️❤️ sending love at 2.35am here 💌💌💌
first of all I am so incredibly proud of you!!! I love every chapter! you can’t make me choose 🙈 but here are my absolute favorite top 3: 1) 2. at the worlds end because it is so beautifully simplistic with so much heart in it. 2) 6. found rainbow along the way, this chapter really warmed my heart I almost felt like I was there with you! I absolutely love the magic of the rainbows that you captured! 3) 9. a ride by air Is my absolute favorite chapter with you & all the colorful hot air balloons! what a dream. this beautiful photo book has really closed off this Decade with a bang♥️ I can’t wait to see what the future has in stored for you taki love!!😊😘💕
Too shy to post comments so here is my giveaway entry 💖
Had a hard time choosing my favourites because every one was absolutely breathtaking.
I can see so much hard work, effort, planning and time just being spent on each chapter. Aesthetics-wise, my favourite chapters are 01/08/14/22. 01 feels like a dream, serene and tranquil which starts the book off perfectly. 08 is interesting, as it is the only B&W chapters and dedicated to your Schatz. Maybe I’m thinking too much, but 08 is a reminder our lives would be so dark without our loved ones around. Chapters 14 was reminiscent of a you from previous years. Seeing you learning, growing along the way. 22 is nothing short of dreamy and testament to your dedication/passion.
Beyond aesthetics, 04/07/23 are my favourite ones. I think I’m someone who is insecure and cares about what people think. I’m also lost over what to do with life so the chapter really resonates with me. I’m just genuinely happy to read the commentary under them as you seem so comfortable being yourself now. No need put pretenses because there is so much acceptance and self-love just being your one true self. I’m just very proud to see how much you grown and pursuing your passions.
I hope you remain carefree no matter where life takes you or whatever happens next doing things that make you happy. Thank you for being so kind and nice to everybody. I was very nervous to message at first. Have a nice day 🥺❤️
Hello. This my first time dm ing you and I just want to say.. just saw the Portraitist’s book of wonders and it’s A M A Z I N G. Probably best out of your whole photobook collection??
Love every single picture. And out of every chapters I really like chapter 2 and 4. Your freedom, how you’re finally able to live the life you want, without having to care for other’s judgement anymore. It’s the kind of goals I’m having rn, to live freely. Embarassing, but I cried when I read those 2 chapters because it hits close to home.
I think I followed you back from 2008-2009? And I was amazed by all of your works. And now you just evolved to a greater height and it’s AWESOME!!! I love your works, always do, and always will. Striving to be as awesome as you do someday! And I’m really happy that you’ve found your happiness uwu
Wishing for a lifetime long last!
