The One That Got Away

The One That Got Away

Advertising, People
I won't deny it! I love working with pretty faces and pretty things! There's no judgement here! I'm not trying to launch a debate about what society has ingrained in our perception of beauty yada-yada. It's just human nature to always seek out the best! I'm lucky enough to work with three of the prettiest in the biz - not to mention talented and influential too! Here are some publicity photos of Rhian Ramos, Lovi Poe and Max Collins for GMA Network's 'The One That Got Away'.

The National Museum of Natural History Manila

The National Museum of Natural History Manila

Architecture, Uncategorized
New buildings around the city are noticeably on the rise and quite a few of them have been refurbished, updated and repurposed as well. The 'new' National Museum of Natural History in Manila is one of the more interesting and compelling architectural feats that draws young and old from far and wide, selfie addicts included. Housed in the former Department of Tourism building, the National Museum of Natural history has retained its neoclassical details with the addition of its more modern centerpiece called 'The Tree of Life', an impressive geometrical glass ceiling and elevator that emulates a DNA helix right at the very center of the building. A number of galleries are already open with a few more that will be completed and accessible within the year. Even if it's…

Shooting outdoors can be quite a rewarding thrill - if you prepare that is! Whether it's just a park a few blocks away from your home or an exotic destination overseas, you can spare yourself from a lot of headache and stress if you can find out about the weather of your destination way beforehand. Having this kind of information will prepare for the necessary protection from the elements you must have not just for yourself but for the kind of gear you'll be needing and protecting as well. And whenever possible, do an ocular before the actual shoot and observe where the sun rises and sets and study what it does to the landscape. Being patient with finding out where the shadows will be will surely reap rewards with…

Makati Med recently got our team to do a series of ads for them featuring the various services their hospital has to offer. Glad to know some of their doctors were game enough to ham it up front of the camera. It was a long but fun day of shooting when you have clients who are just chill.

It's been awhile since we've done a San Miguel Campaign. The last time was almost 8 years ago, so it was great given the chance to do something for them again.

Super Ma’am

Advertising, Campaign
Always a fun time shooting with Marian. This was the campaign for her comeback on GMA's primetime. Teacher by day, superhero by after class? Of course, when you talk about superheroes, that's one of our studio's strengths. Plus, she has cosplayed several times before, and not to mention her run on Darna. So the superhero stint is nothing new for this Kapuso superstar. [embed]https://youtu.be/s02nxk9g4ro[/embed] Production Credits Client: GMA Network Photography: Jay Tablante / Paulo Navarra
