The main challenge for this ad is getting the action just right. This is where casting becomes an important aspect in a campaign. We needed models who not only look good on camera but can move as well. Good thing we the ones who were casted had dancing and gymnastic backgrounds. It made our lives easier by getting the shots off the bat instead of relying heavily on body part shooting to get the composition.

We had the privilege of working on the opening campaign for BeepBeepPH, app for all your car needs. This was one of the rare times I get to work with a car, and it has always been a welcome challenge to do. Good thing the clients were formerly from ad agencies who knew of our work since, and trusted us with this campaign with James Deakin. https://youtu.be/xoWKq-QxRK8

The primary challenge of this shoot is getting James into the right angle of the motorbike. Ok, there weren't any sharks in the actual shot, but given this is a composed image (which we love shooting for by the way), we had to figure out the right pose with a little experimentation along the way. We were happy with the results and this campaign is currently running on EDSA. https://youtu.be/pN1g0zgBX9A Production Credits Client: PepsiAgency: BBDO GuerreroProduction House: Clayshop Inc.Photography: Jay Tablante

I've worked with both Dingdong Dantes and Dennis Trillo a number of times all on separate occasions in the past. Cain At Abel brings these two GMA stalwarts together in one exciting, action-packed production that tells of two brothers separated at childhood and then joined together years after in cruel twists of fate. Both men are considered showbiz royalty and yet manage to remain grounded and humble having come a long way in their respective careers. I've worked with all kinds of actors in the industry and the most rewarding to collaborate with are the ones with a deep respect and utmost dedication for their craft. Both men have earned their place in the tumultuous and fickle industry and I have personally seen why. Giving direction during a photo shoot…

Quite honored to be a regular with one of the premier agencies in the country, JWT Manila. It's always fun shooting with this agency, not to mention I used to work there before as a creative. For this project, it was for Rogin E. They had my do a signature lighting we used for Men's Health magazine. You can also watch the behind the scenes on how we did the shoot, even up to the light effect at the back. -Jay [embed]https://youtu.be/SYgFN8Ndp8w[/embed] Production Credits Client: Bayer Philippines Agency: J.

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

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.
