About

Bill Tanaka is a photography/ director duo based in Amsterdam.
Since 2008, we've been working on local and international campaigns in both photography and film.  

We seek our challenge in creating valuable and strategically impactful content at the highest creative standard and enjoy solving the conceptual and practical difficulties around commercial image making. We select our team per job and work with the best people possible to achieve the best results for our clients. 
Above all, we know the importance of a good coffee on set!!
