Kishin Shinoyama (篠山 紀信, b. Shinjuku, Tokyo, 3 December 1940) is a Japanese photographer.
After leaving Light Publicity in 1968, Shinoyama began a successful career photographing subjects which ranged from portraits of pop stars to travel photographs of the Silk Road, capturing them with a fine expressive technique.
His unique character and appearance made him a mass media star and he popularized the phrase gekisha ('agitated shot')-a series using amateur models.
Although working on various subjects, including travel and body tattoos, he is best known for his celebrity portraits and nudes.
