My FPPF Strobist Workshop @ 2 Years

It's been a hectic first quarter year and yet our March blog is found empty. Without going into tedious details on what's been going on, I'd like to highlight here that my strobist workshop with the FPPF is two years old so far! It was never easy as every workshop of mine has my whole being immersed in it. Yours truly thanks from the bottom of my heart the Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation, Inc. and Columbia Digital Star Corp. for all the support...and my beloved participants who enrolled-kudos to all of you!

2013 FPPF Strobist Workshop: Batch 28!

What a way to start 2013! Congratulations to my strobist photography lighting participants! May you be the best photographer you can ever become, guys.

PhotoWorldAsia 2013 Just 21 Days Near!

It used to be known as National Photography Week. Now it's PhotoWorldAsia (PWA). Let's support our very own way of celebrating Philippine photography. Here's the press release:

It’s barely three weeks to go and everything is set for PhotoWorld Asia 2013, the largest and longest-running photography trade show and convention happening on January 31-February 5. The speakers, the sponsors, the secretariat, the venues and the delegates – all are ready for the big rollout on opening day.

The latest detail to be finalized is the venue for the hands-on photo shoot with American professional photographer Joe McNally and the other convention speakers. FPPF Chairperson Mrs. Eduviges Y. Huang said it will be held at the Fernwood Gardens in Quezon City, a favorite wedding venue with a lush tropical garden setting. “The hands-on shoot with the guest speakers and delegates will include Body Painting, Cosplay, and Fashion models,” Mrs. Huang said.

The Fernwood hands-on workshop on February 5 with the master photographers is a separate event outside of the 5-day international photographers’ convention. Delegates are invited to attend the Fernwood event to shoot with the masters.

The PhotoWorld Asia trade show and international photographers convention is an annual event run by the Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation (FPPF) without fail since 1995. The trade show at the Ayala Malls in Glorietta, Makati showcases the latest cameras and gadgets from major companies like Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Sony, Samsung, Panasonic, Fujifilm, Kodak, and many others while the international photographers’ convention at the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) also in Makati will have master photographers as speakers topbilled by world renowned US professional photographer Joe McNally and his first assistant Drew Gurian.

Filipino masters who will also share their expertise with convention delegates are: Allan Razo, G-nie Arambulo, Revoli Cortez, Edwin Bacasmas, Nap Jamir II, Dan Pamintuan, Prof. Cecilia Manikan, Edwin Loyola, Jomel Gregorio, Nick Tuason, Jay Tablante and Arnel Murillo.

Chairman of PhotoWorld Asia 2013 is multi-awarded lady photographer Cris Cleofas, immediate past president of Alpha Camera Club. The trade show at the Activity Center of Glorietta is open to the public for free. Vendors at the trade show traditionally offer big discounts during the event. The international photographers convention at the AIM and the hands-on photo shoot with the masters require paid registration. Delegates who come from the provinces and abroad may check-in with the AIM Hotel at discounted rates.
