Paulo: I sure hope this encourages healthy financial habits across the country no matter how young (or old!) you are. Working with 'Jadine' was a cinch! Both were very professional, a pleasure to work with and take direction very well. As photographers, we need to put on our director's cap from time to time and capture emotions that create connections with the project's target audience.

Lip Sync Battle Philippines

Lip Sync Battle Philippines

People
Paulo: Lip Sync Battle - Philippines kicks off with the handsome pairing of Dennis Trillo and Tom Rodriguez! A single hard open bulb strobe was only suitable to bring out the edginess and excitement of this unconventional "singing" competition.   [supsystic-gallery id='32'] Production Credits Client: GMA Network Agency: GMA PSD Photography: Paulo Navarra

Promil Pre-School

Advertising, Campaign, Lifestyle
Paulo: This project had both a print as well as a TVC component which usually means longer hours on the set as the TVC director and photographer (yours truly) take turns with the talents. The sun was already setting and we already lost a lot of light when I finally got my turn but I still had to make it look like daytime. Thanks to some diffusion paper over the windows and simulated natural light using strobes, I guess I was able to pull it off!  [supsystic-gallery id='20'] Production Credits Client: Promil Pre-school Agency: Y&R Photography: Paulo Navarra

ManilaMed

Advertising, Campaign, Lifestyle
Paulo: ManilaMed is setting itself apart from the typical cold and stoic doctor-patient relationship to something more meaningful and substantial. Healing is not purely technical or academic but is also about care and connection.   [supsystic-gallery id='8'] Production Credits Client: ManilaMed Agency: Havas Media Ortega Photography: Paulo Navarra

Wuffwich

Wuffwich

Advertising, Campaign, Food
Paulo: With the help of a food stylist, food photography shoots involve a lot of inedible items, such as chemicals, artificial food coloring as well as a lot of wire, glue and sticky tape. Some shoots are exceptions though! The team was able to sample these delectable waffles right after they were photographed! (That's why I love food shoots!)  These Wuffwich golden savory and sweet treats are delicious and also portable! Catch them in your favorite mall!  [supsystic-gallery id='16'] Production Credits Client: Food Asia Corporation Photography: Paulo Navarra

Nobu Restaurant Manila

Nobu Restaurant Manila

Advertising, Architecture, Interiors
Nobu is the world’s most recognized Japanese restaurant, known for its innovative and modern cuisine, paired with a hip crowd and celebrity following. Paulo: The interiors of Nobu combine distinct Japanese motifs executed in both a traditional and modern way and demonstrates a cohesive East-West yin and yang. This had to be photographed late into the evening through the wee hours of the morning since the lighting emphasized more drama and opulence to the interiors.

Crystal Dragon

Advertising, Architecture, Interiors
Crystal Dragon features authentic regional Chinese dishes as well as premium Cantonese fare. Paulo: Shooting in this very photogenic venue reminded me of what an opulent restaurant in Shanghai or Hong Kong would look like during the 1930s or 1940s. Very visually unique and highly stylized. Very Wong Kar-wai. [supsystic-gallery id='13'] Production Credits Client: Melco Crown Philippines Agency: BBDO Guerrero Photography: Paulo Navarra

Paulo: I love how the costumes are on point and distinct to each actor for this layout. This project had Gladiator and 300 as pegs for costume and poses. This is one of the collaborative processes I enjoy when it comes to a full scale photography production. It's all in the details!     [supsystic-gallery id='31'] Production Credits Client: GMA Network Agency: GMA PSD Photography: Paulo Navarra
