Photo-hobbyist based in Cebu City, Southern Philippines. That's ten degrees above the Equator.
Filipino, 5'7", long hair, bearded. A student of Hermetics and the Kabbalah; and formerly sidelined as an astrologer and a tarot card reader. Sun and Moon in Pisces. Mercury, Venus and Mars are all in Aries. I'm easily taken for a ride; but I prefer to do the driving.
My first camera was a Nikon F Photomic given to me by my Uncle Rosendo in 1975. I then worked as press photographer/features writer for two years(1980-1982) at the University of the Philippines Information Office in Diliman, Quezon City(I was a Mass Comm. alumnus there). I then returned to my hometown in Cebu City(1982) to help manage our family pension house. I went back to shooting again (street photography) in 1987 and eventually started sponsoring minor pageants and bikini competitions in 2002; as I was beginning to get fascinated with female beauty. It's this merry mix of shooting experiences which has resulted to the present style of photography that I'm doing today, not to mention the fact that I'm still single. I wish to have more experience photographing/glorifying different beauties of different races; but I'm stuck with Cebuanas(Austronesians) for the time being. To be honest, I think that Filipinas are some of the most attractive women in the world - photography-wise. Otherwise, I would have been better off spending my time photographing cliché orange beach sunsets, small old colonial churches and creepy street scenes from over here.
