Farewell To The Cool Dude With A DSLR
My Fine Arts college batchmate in Edwin Bautista passed away last week at the Medical City hospital in Ortigas due to a massive heart attack. Words fail me to praise and describe this very vibrant soul. His family, relatives and many, many friends paint a bright image of Edwin. All I can say is that he was one of the good guys on the planet with a very contagiously happy and intense aura. My last project with him (as team leader) was shooting the SM Parisian line during the Philippine Fashion Week this year. Oh my-how ad photography became of this him (this Pasig restaurant entrepreneur by night) in less that two years! Here is my portrait of him last year using my Nikon DSLR with an old Nikkor 50mm f/1,2. Truly a worthy, compassionate titan of advertising photography in Shutterbug Inc's corporate history in Makati city. What a great colleague and friend indeed. My heart is always moved by the mere mention of his name. And he is sorely missed-what a cool dude! Bye for now Edwin...see you someday!
