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…

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'.

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.

These are the few times when work and fun get to mix together in one project. EPIK Studios recently got in touch with me for this project, and I simply couldn't turn this one down. It was fun coaching the actors go about their characters and get those moments in the shots. AJ was just awesome going berserk as an aswang on set. Tabi Po is a adaptation of a recent graphic novel hit written and illustrated by Mervin Malonzo. You can still read the freebie comics online here.
