Y'know, it breaks my heart that I couldn't attend this open invitation from the dear folks of the Nikon Club. This photo safari collides with the FPPF's Strobist Lighting workshop in Intramuros, Manila that yours truly will conduct. Nevertheless, hope springs eternal...
The Nikon Club Philippines (NCP) is pleased to announce the next Monthly Seminar Series this September 2010: Photography Commerce with yours truly as guest speaker! It all starts 9:00 AM to 12:00 NN at the EPSON Head Office, 8/F Anson's Building, 23 ADB avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig city. Thanks to Columbia Digital Star Corporation and Epson Philippines for the invitation. See you there!
Many thanks to the efficient Iggy Salazar-one of the FPPF's national organizer. Our workshop ran so smooth without a hitch. Ador Pamintuan and Joey Tanedo along with moi powered the lecture/demo series. New to my repertoire was the Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS)! Many thanks to the Cebuanos' magnificent hospitality! We hope to be back again! I just wished someone would take some beauty shots and videos of moi at work heh, heh, heh! Never mind.
Here is a poster I shot for the Sta. Rosa, Laguna photo workshop. I convinced Penny Calalang-one of the FPPF's national organizer to post printads, posters and a billboard announcing any workshop beforehand so as to have as many participants possible. FPPF's art director Frando Culata did the final layout. Now, Mr. Calalang, wasn't it all worth the while? I intend to put out new visuals (of my own) for the FPPF's wedding and cruise ship photo workshops...stay tuned!
Humble beginnings are often a steep, uphill climb with roadblocks litering the way. Such was the 1st FPPF Strobist Workshop last week. Twenty-three paxs attended the lighting seminar. Many thanks for Brian Lee (man behind the umbrella) who single-handedly produced the logistics necessary to launched this seminar. What a selfless FPPF executive, indeed, who went over and beyond the call of duty. Credit also goes to Columbia Digital's Andy Tan, JR Bonifacio and Ricky Ladia for providing the Nikon gears for students to try. Also muchas gracias to the sexy model in Joan Mazo. Let's hope this workshop snowballs into a huge, rolling success. Congratulations all participants especially to the OTS winners in Ricky and Rhoda! Aside from their medals, they won an 8Gb Sandisk Ultra CF card-a first in FPPF gift awards! May you spread the gospel of strobist lighting in our country! LOL
Every graduating Basic Photography Workshop batch of the FPPF allows moi to empower these future pro photogs to become even better by lecturing on their last workshop day on the following topics: Digital Workflow, Strobist Lighting and Basic Adobe Photoshop CS. Too bad there is no more real estate spaces on their FPPF Certificates of completion for me to sign on due to sundry lecturers' signatures crowding the said certificates heh, heh, heh! Goes to show you that the FPPF has many experts nurturing these artists-hence, the best photo workshop in the Asia-bar none! Congratz to Batch 22-may you be one of the best photogs in the world guys!
