After finishing the course at the age of 19, he started his own studio in his hometown Tottori. His most well-known and successful works were photos of people photographed as objects posed in dune, which are known as "Ueda-cho" and highly appreciated in the world.

In 1954 he won the Nika Prize, and in 1958 his works were selected by Edward Steichen for an exhibition at MoMA. In 1982 his work was selected to be displayed at Germany's Photokina Exhibition.
