A friend of mine went to Ryuji to get photos for his online dating profile. He told me that after switching to Ryuji’s pictures, he started having a lot more success. Based on his recommendation, I went to Ryuji to get my own profile pictures. From his website to the preliminary phone discussion and on to the photo session itself, I was astounded by how much care and sophistication he brought to the entire process. He provides an incredible amount of information up front to help you prepare for the session and ensure that you get what you were hoping from the shoot. He’s an engaging and fascinating person to talk to as you work with him, which makes the session fly by, but looking back on it, I can see how his deep experience and professionalism went into making the session efficient, productive, and effective. – Evan Busch 6 Feb 2019
I don’t like taking pictures, unless Ryuji is behind the camera. I highly recommend him if you would like to have your photos taken and enjoy the process. He helped me tremendously to update my dating profile and bring new life to my LinkedIn. Thanks again Ryuji ! – Jonathan Epstein 24 Sep 2018
I hate having my picture taken. Every time I try to smile for the camera the resulting photo always comes out looking fake or stiff. My dating profile was full of selfies and badly taken photos with various cellphones. I was in desire need of some good pictures. Ryuji to the rescue. Besides being a talented photographer, Ryuji is amazing to work with. He has a way of putting you at ease while he shoots. The resulting photo’s come out looking vibrant and relaxed. Your personality shines through the photos. – Eric J. Pawtucket, RI, on 9/28/2016
I found Ryuji on his Beaupix website when I was looking for a photographer to take good photos of me for a dating website. Working with him was a delight. He has a great, dry sense of humor and is a fantastic photographer. He spent over 2 hours with me taking photos both in his studio and outdoors. I was nervous at first and uncomfortable in front of the camera but he worked with me so well and we got numerous shots that I was proud of, that showcased the “authentic” me. I have since used the photos both on Facebook and Linked in. Highly, highly recommended! – Leslie K. Marlborough, MA on 10/25/2015
I had an amazing experience getting pictures done for dating profiles. This is the first time that I’ve seen pictures of me that look the way I think I look. I’ve always hated looking at pictures of myself. they never seem to show what I see when I look in the mirror. I’m so excited to finally have photos of myself that look like me. I’ve had headshots done by professional photographers and still ended up disappointed. The process was seamless. Everything happened exactly the way Ryuji said it would from the initial inquiry to downloading my pictures. I cannot recommend Beaux Studio enough. – Deanna L. Dennis, MA on 30 Jul 2015
Eric W’s yelp review on 5/14/2014
I had never had professional headshots done before. Ryuji did an excellent job preparing, advising on wardrobe and guiding me through the process. I left with 30+ excellent professional and casual shots from several locations with 3 wardrobe changs. He carefully selected the best shots from hundreds. Very worthwhile experience. Excellent photographer. Easy manner that made me feel comfortable with the whole process. Highly recommended.
Andie N’s yelp review on 4/14/2014
Before going to Ryuji, the only professional photos I had featured me as a bridesmaid or maid of honor. I went to his studio with a desire for high quality multipurpose [read: dating] photos and a conviction that everyone deserves pro treatment. I was not disappointed. Being a nerd, I prepped with tons of google searches, everything I could find on Ryuji as well as how to prep for headshots. I went in with reasonable expectations and several choices of outfits. Ryuji put me at ease, making conversation and building rapport. He has a very disarming style, and that came in handy because I was somewhat nervous/unsure what to expect. We took some professional-type shots in his very industrial-chic studio and then went outside and around the neighborhood for more casual shots. I was worried the casual shots would look too composed, but he has a very smooth way of taking photos when you don’t even realize he’s taking photos, thus capturing really natural moments and expressions. It also helps that he’s fun to hang out with. He likes to talk about food and beer and movies, as well as whether or not you should stand that way or look over there. He takes the process very seriously, and he’ll explain anything you want him to explain. When we got back to the studio to look over the shots, he was patient and helped me make decisions. Above all I valued the transparency of the process; there was never a time I felt things were happening behind a curtain. Ryuji shows you results during the shoot so you have a sense of what you’re getting, and together you figure out which ones are truly keepers at the end of the day. Great experience.

I recently had photos taken by Ryuji at Baupix Studio. It was a great experience and I would recommend him to anyone. I went in with the delicate task of getting a good shot for dating websites… I was pretty embarrassed. Ryuji made me feel very comfortable and he knew just what I was after – a shot that made me look my best but not too polished! He was also very patient while I went through the grueling exercise of choosing my favorite shot. Brilliant idea, why not put your best face out there!
Everything I read in the reviews was absolutely true. Ryuji is professional, interested and a master photographer. Not sure how easy it is to make a first time subject (me) relax and look good, but he pulled off the impossible. I was uncomfortable and embarrassed upon going, but I began to relax and actually enjoy myself (I got to play movie star for the day). We took great care choosing the photos I came home with, he was so patient as I hemmed and hawed about which I liked best. Then he touched them up perfectly – they look good, but not overly polished. It was such a nice afternoon, and I came home with some great shots. Thank you Ryuji!
