Bacolod Countryside Life…

Bacolod Countryside Life…

It’s the Masskara festival in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental two weeks before my birthday! (October 19-21) I booked my flight around 3 months before this event and I already had a hard time looking for an open slot. I didn’t even book a hotel, I knew they were going to be fully booked so I was … Continue reading

A maternity shoot and a baby shower!

A maternity shoot and a baby shower!

It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon for a maternity shoot with my good friend Cai. She’s ready to pop very soon and she wanted to have a souvenir of her first pregnancy. As always, she’s a blooming expectant mother of a baby boy (so that takes down the myth that only mothers expecting a baby … Continue reading

A try at pet photography…

A try at pet photography…

Pet photography is not my niche per se, but I’m not closing my doors on this subject. :) So one morning, I decided to practice on our own mini-dachschunds, Lexi (11 weeks) and RiRi (2 years old). RiRi is the mother and Lexi is her son. I took them out in the garden where there … Continue reading

Getting married in a college campus? Possible!

Getting married in a college campus? Possible!

Carol and Ric took several weeks (or months?) searching for their summer wedding venue. The beach wedding option was booted out, a garden wedding in Tagaytay was also considered but eventually didn’t make the cut. I could just imagine how frustrating this could be. But after scouting around the metro and nearby areas, they found … Continue reading

Post-wedding thoughts :)

Post-wedding thoughts :)

There’s no such thing as a perfect wedding. I was “interviewing” the bride, my kaladkarin buddy, my partner-in-crime (?), my good friend since college Kirsteen on her post-wedding thoughts earlier this lunch. We were reviewing what transpired in their wedding, how some things have been screwed up by suppliers and didn’t turn out the way … Continue reading

The Power of Three: 3 Photos, One Story.

The Power of Three: 3 Photos, One Story.

For Zone V Camera Club’ s annual photo exhibit, our club has chosen to go “triptych.” The 3 scenes in each sets of pictures may stand alone but when viewed together present a view that draws the audience one step further or even three steps further. Our exhibit runs at 2/F South Entertainment Wing, SM Mall of Asia from Feb 23-29, 2012. Continue reading

Dwelling Place

Dwelling Place

This shot was taken in Phnom Penh, Cambodia during my backpacking trip in 2011. I used my Nikon with my 12-24mm lens and converted the photo to B&W in Adobe Lightroom. Checkered floors, single rusty bed fill the rooms… The place was eerie silent and it gave me goosebumps when I entered it. I couldn’t image how the … Continue reading

Long weekends, portraits, and a lake…

Long weekends, portraits, and a lake…

The past two weeks gave us two consecutive long weekends–non-working Mondays at that! It gave me time to rest and… well, do just about nothing. I don’t remember being pre-occupied by anything, which is good. That’s how I like it. The first long weekend also particularly gave me the time to celebrate my birthday with … Continue reading

One week to go ’til Ironman 70.3 Philippines!

One week to go ’til Ironman 70.3 Philippines!

The countdown begins! This is not just any other triathlon race. From local and international triathlete participants, the vast scenery in Camarines Sur, to the festive mood of the sports party, it’s the country’s mega sports event we’re looking forward to. Actually, my triathlete friends have already been counting down the days to this since … Continue reading

Where I got the best photos… :)

Where I got the best photos… :)

I recently contributed a Trip Report in Lonely Planet’s Thorn Tree and I was asked by one of those who replied where I got the best photos from my recent backpacking trip. Well, I took HUNDREDS of them and I’m consolidating my favorite ones here. I’m so glad I brought my wide-angle lens (for my … Continue reading

Wedding bells a’ringin’!

Wedding bells a’ringin’!

As June brides walk down the aisle for this “wedding month” of June, I’m sure wedding coordinators, photographers, caterers, singers, flower arrangers, and wedding venues are all fully-booked serving their respective clients. Though June is the most popular wedding month, I personally haven’t attended a wedding on June. I’ve gone to weddings on a December … Continue reading

Uncontainable April!

Uncontainable April!

The Traveling Havaianas has been on a roll this April! For me, summer ain’t complete without these essentials: Havaianas, Nikon camera, and a great sense of adventure. Here’s a taste of some my exploits that made me quite busy all throughout the month: Davao City. What I came for: A local trip for 3 days. … Continue reading
