Hana Asano is the daughter of two immigrants from Japan who came to the United States in hopes of becoming jazz musicians.

Growing up in Los Angeles, Hana has always had a strong love for imagery, sport and the moments in between. Her experiences as a collegiate athlete informed her understanding of the strength, power and vulnerability that sport provides on a daily basis.

As a photographer and director, she combines her passion for storytelling through sport and culture, examining each subject as a human being, first.

She currently splits time between Los Angeles, Hawai’i and Barcelona.
