THE SECOND TIME AROUND

When Det and Darrel were expecting their first born (Adam), we were exploring the idea of doing a maternity shoot.  Though portrait photography (in whatever form) always intimidated me and something I reluctantly ventured into unless it involved children or unknowing strangers (that sounds a bit creepy and little more like stalking), I was excited...

WHY I DON’T SHOOT WEDDINGS?

A few friends of mine have ventured into wedding photography and would invite me join them for gigs from time to time, all of which I turned down.  I almost envy them when I see the images they post online.  How great it is to do the thing you love and get paid for it?... Continue Reading →

OUTSIDE MY COMFORT ZONE

Had fun shooting last night.  Though initially I was apprehensive (more like frightened) with the prospect of taking photos of a roomful of judges.  How do you actually give instructions to people who make a career giving out orders?

BACOLOD: SHOOTING WIDE

Something I learned when I was reviewing for the Bar Exams.  Even though it was late in the morning, I decided to pick-up my camera bag and head to Downtown Bacolod.    Didn't really have...

SILAY: SHORT WALK

I went to great lengths to see Vigan, Ilocos Sur and Taal, Batangas because they have preserved their own historical architecture, and with heritage awareness.  But of they're not the only heritage town in the Philippines and Silay is among that list.   Silay City is about 15 minutes from Bacolod City by private car and around...
