Asian moon camera’s was founded by Takeshi Kitano, a man with a dream that everyone should be able to capture their memories last with quality cameras. With a degree in business and a passion for photography Takeshi decided to merge the two when he took out a loan from the bank with his business idea. Together with a team he could hire with his budget they worked to create the Buddy Camera, now named the pocket camera. With the success of the Buddy Camera what was once a company of 5 people has now grown to be one of the largest Camera company in the world house over 100,000 employees.

Takeshi Kitano, from a young age Takeshi has always been in awe from the beauty that a simple photograph is capable of. Like most children his parents wanted him to pursue a sensible career choice with a promising future. It wasn’t until Takeshi moved to Amercia did he finally have the courage to pressure his dream, he tried photography and still does to this day but what he found was that the camera’s available to a beginner could be frustrating and make one loose focus, this and his keen business sense decided to create Asian Moon cameras.
