Danita Paner

Originally planned as a test shoot, this set of Danita Paner landed on Manila Bulletin’s Styleweekend Magazine a few months back. Done at the studio late last year with Xeng Zulueta for hair and makeup, and Team YenSei (Yen Yen Navalta and Dansei Manalo). Shot with the Nikon D700 combined with Bowens heads. Except for …

AG

Got to shoot this Italian-Filipina stunner late last year with Janina Dizon (makeup), Patrice Dayanghirang (hair) and John Rufo (styling) using my then brand new Nikon D750 and Bowens strobes. While I was admittedly figuring out how to go about some of the settings of the camera, I was very pleased with the output the …

He flips music like you flip pancakes…from Japan, pun intended. Here’s a set of Bill a.k.a. DJ Japancakes shot with Anj Dargnani and Raffy Tesoro a few months back. Done with my Nikon D7000 and Bowens heads. —-

Mond Gutierrez

Mond Gutierez usually calls the shots. He’s a TV & events host, reality show star of It Takes Gutz To Be A Gutierrez, magazine editor – among other things, and an all around nice guy who seems to put everyone in Manila, together. It was forthcoming that we finally got this shoot together, done with …

Arina Polushkina

This set, along with last one I posted was shot around the same time in 2013. That seems like a really long time ago, now. Teamed up with Xeng Zulueta and Cats Del Rosario for this one again with Arina Polushkina who was in Manila at that time. Shot with a Nikon D700 and one …

Bea Paloma

Here’s a set I did of Bea Paloma a year and a half ago with Xeng Zulueta and Cats Del Rosario. I can’t believe these photos have just been lying in my archive all this time. All photos shot with a Nikon D700 at the studio (which we rent out by the way). As far …

Aze of Base

Here’s a set I did with Aze Sazaki with Ria Aquino (makeup), Steph Escobedo (hair) and Kaydee Yco (styling) sometime last year. After all these years, since the Embassy days, we were finally able to get our schedules down and do this shoot. I used mixed lighting for this shoot, going from a combination of …

Miss MJ keeps it real

Mary Jolly, or Miss MJ, however you prefer to call her, keeps it real. She’s a real natural in front of the camera. It was easy-breezy and lots of fun doing this set with Jet Babas who did hair and makeup. Used one light and/or available light with a couple of reflectors for all the …
