THOUGHT BUBBLE: REDEFINING

The problem with adult life is when we reach that stage where we slowly begin lose the people that matter in our lives.  We know that death is a certainty.  It will surely come though we don't know when or how.  I always thought I'd die young (What can I say, I was a morbid... 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?

BEACH VOLLEYBALL REPUBLIC: LAKAWON LEG

HONG KONG: THE ADVENTURE BEGINS

Doc's birthday was coming up and she set her sights on getting inked by Whang Od.  The prospect of a two hour trek from jump-off point to Buscalan, the small village where Whang-od lives already made me cringe.  Yes, it was a once in a life time opportunity to meet and photograph this 93 year-old mambabatok and living national...
