The challenge of shooting with kids is the limited time you can have them in front of the camera. Kids are only permitted 4 hours shooting time, so every minute counts. Good thing our talent for this shoot was easy to direct and nailed most our shots shots within that window. It also helped the mom talent is her actual mom too. Hehehe.

It was great working with James again on this campaign. And turns out to be an interesting challenge. Shooting cars is already hard, what more when it's a bad ass jeep with James and friends riding on the top?! We had to give the illusion of speed on this one, while sitting comfortably in the studio. With that, we had to bring out most of our lights and do an artificial sun effect in the studio. We did a ton more layouts during this campaign and I hope the brand is able to make good use of them. James with…

Now is a great time to dedicate a post to the unsung heroes of any advertising campaign photo shoot. They are the often times nameless, unacknowledged yet very talented beings (and probably the most harassed) but still ever prepared wardrobe stylists and production/set designers. I would even go so far to say that they literally make the photographer's shots look good, who with their meticulous eye for detail bend the most to the client's whim. It's most often because of them that each shot looks so well put together. Together with the rest of the team, they know what works…

2021 Ginebra Calendar

Despite the challenges shooting during a pandemic, this was certainly a project we were excited for. This calendar was done during the height of the restrictions, so you can imagine the hoops we had to jump to finish the shoot well within time. Good thing Christelle was such a trooper throughout the entire day. Production Credits Client: Ginebra San MiguelAgency: Dentsu One ManilaProduction House: Edge of LightPhotography: Jay Tablante

Demo Reel 2021

https://youtu.be/wd5AMz2LMPg Since lockdown started, we've somehow learned to work around the limbo that was 2020. Even if we've had to shoot from home for a time, we've discovered new ways to stay busy and persistently creative while staying connected. There's always a silver lining through all of this and with safety protocols and mandatory swab tests in place, we in Point Blank are very much grateful to be able to still do what we love doing and that is making great quality eye popping content for all of you. It's just a matter of time (and patience!) before we get…

We Shoot Food!

We Shoot Food!

Visuals are the first and foremost gateway in getting people's attention. No matter how much you claim the food is good, unfortunately people can't smell or lick off their monitors. But they can see it though. When you have good images, that's more than half of the sales pitch. It makes your customers' mouth water. They pick up their phones and call in the nearest Grab / Food Panda or any delivery. You get your sale. Rinse and repeat. A good image is the gift that keeps on giving... when you invest in them well. Book us and make sure…

Some previous work we found and just thought of posting just for the sake of posterity. And yes so you guys can see how our typical day is like shooting for clients. Though there is some sort of familiarity in advertising projects, each shoot still presents some unique challenges. Like... shooting with kids. For one, government law mandates kids can only work for four (4) hours per shooting day. Mind you, this was still before the pandemic. Today's requirements are way stricter to implement. https://youtu.be/wFW9vfW03Hs Production Credits: Client: Wyeth PhilippinesAgency: Campaigns & GreyPhotographer: Jay Tablante
