Del Monte Fruit Juice

Del Monte Fruit Juice

The hardest part about this project is shooting the juice. We had to capture splashes mid air in the right shape needed for the key visual. It took several gallons, a big basin and alot of patience. Also be prepared with a mop to clean the sticky floor after. And of course, the juice is actually delicious!

Wish Ko Lang

Wish Ko Lang

Both Jay and I would agree that the studio is our happy place. And for good and practical reason. We're both such control freaks that we would rather simulate the look of a golden sunset or an overcast day with artificial lighting in the convenience of an indoor space with AC, rather than out there with all the heat and smog. (We're brats that way). And sometimes we just can't refuse the call of the great outdoors - and also because, our clients insist and we excitedly oblige and take on the challenge! For this particular shoot with GMA, I…

Krispy Kreme

Who doesn't like donuts? And more importantly, who doesn't like Krispy Kreme? I remember, already quite a long time ago, those days that we would beg a visiting relative from the US to hand carry at least a dozen of these original sugar glazed babies on their plane ride to Manila. It was on everyone's pasalubong list and once the anticipation was over, savored each sweet bite. No other experience can match its melt-in-your-mouth one of a kind softness. Fast forward to my photo shoot for Krispy Kreme. Shooting, while eating made me reminisce about those sweet old days. There…

And just like that, 10 years have gone by - a thrilling ride to say the least. It may not be the most prestigious award but it sure feels that way and to me, a timely and fitting way to mark a decade in the industry. Thank you to my friend, Maan D'Asis Pamaran who invited me to contribute and to landscape photographer extraordinaire for giving her the lead. ;-P Interestingly, I've worked with Maan only once and eons ago on a lifestyle article I already forgot about. I've since been an avid follower of her humorous and enlightening Facebook…

Cain At Abel

Cain At Abel

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…
