Visiting a moving art form: The Russian Tall S...

Published January 14th, 2013

Just out of the blue, i was informed through sources that a sail ship from Russia will open it's decks to the locale for about 4 hours...that's not a lot, and despite that i'm not really into boats i was however interested in exploring them. As most people do, i did a quick google and i was amazed that it wasn't just any 'sail boat'. I took the chance and despite the very 'English' type of weather, i set out to see it...after all it was free. This is a teaser...i shall finish the whole set when time (and free hard disk space) allows me. This is a teaser pic of my visit to the Tall Ship SEDOV...story to come soon! All i say is that it was INCREDIBLE!

My unraveling

Published November 22nd, 2012

New material, new visions and that eternal lust for life that pushes you forward. I'm glad I've gone this far despite the many drawbacks that plagued my photography. Two solid years worth of photos that i feel is worth sharing to the world and much more being created as the second hand ticks, i feel as if i have not scratched the surface yet since most are just picked randomly from a litter of so many in my develop folder. I first took on photography through automobiles and took the skills i learned from that and expanded it to unlimited possibilities...

I've attached a limited sampler of various shoots i've done, work-wise, commissioned, personal projects and my Autobellissima (all about cars) which may get it's own account here! It's been a humble journey from me, definitely no smooth sailing. Yet i'm constantly learning to apply my philosophy into creating an image from start to finish...and i hope it's the springboard of so many more to come and better output. Cheers!

Yearning about returning to 500px...

Published May 21st, 2012's been awhile since i was involved in sharing photographs here in 500px or elsewhere. Not that i don't have any new material but in fact, i literally have thousands of photos to share that i feel may 'have that potential 'to touch the viewers emotions. At least that's the content that i've been seeing here on the site. Photos that make you go 'ooh' and 'ah' are always what i strive to reach when it comes to quality straight from the shot until post for both the viewer that appreciates or the client with that keen eye. Through 500px i've witnessed photos that are amazing, provoking me to try and make every potential photo i've already touched and yet to touch speak endlessly with meaning like them...but there was a problem...

The problem was that i did nothing much to 'share' as much as i did 'shooting'. I'm really not one of those to just share a photograph the moment it's's a bad habit i know but i guess my main reason is that despite i've been having praises, th ...

Photo Sharing #2 'Panthera'

Published August 26th, 2011

A shot of the majestic Leopard. Taken at the Avilon Zoo | Animal reserve In Rizal Montalban. A privately owned animal house housing a lot of unique animals. it's just a half an hour drive from the metro. This cat in particular was very behaved, having restless cougers and jaguars in the next spaces and a white lion roaring for attention in the distance. He perches up to the top of his domain on his rocky place as this is the leopards environment enabling me to take this shot of him looking at me from the distance. I tried having a one on one stare with him but as a leopard, he seems quite the bashful kind, leopards in the wild are starving and im happy this one is not!

Hope you enjoy! if you like the photo, pls vote with this link!
