Teaching and Judging at the FPPF

As some of you know, I spend some of my time teaching photography at the FPPF in Intramuros and judge participants' hundreds of photographs in several categories. The five judges in assessment are (top photo, L-R): Prof. Joey Tanedo (UP Fine Arts) George Cabig (premier landscape photog), moi, Ed Santiago (veteran photojournalist) and Dean Lito De Guzman (FEU Fine Arts). Sometimes top commercial photographer John Chua (bottom photo) would pop in one of my lecture sessions to showcase his latest portfolio. Here he breaks the news that ShoeMart (SM) has agreed to sponsor a nationwide photography event for the disabled under the auspices of the FPPF. Among his advocacies, John passionately promotes autism awareness. Keep up the good work John! (Photos by Cris Malinao)
