FPPF Strobist Lighting Workshop

May you show the way to light! Congratulation Batch 19 of the unstoppable FPPF Strobist Lighting Workshop participants!

Exclusive Luneta Photo Workshop

Thanks to the FPPF and its sponsors, yours truly is enabled to do my share in teaching and sharing the love of photography to everyone. Here we were serving the needs of the Luneta park photogs, and encouraging them to be world-class in photo quality, customer servicing and respectfully united in teamwork. If there are any generous individuals/institutions out there willing to donate any old DSLRs rigs/accessories and portable battery powered printers to them (in perfect working condition, of course)-these would immensely and immediately improve their jobs, income and their image to all tourists...as most Luneta photogs pathetically use old entry level P&S cameras. Moreover, they badly need a crash course in 1st class customer servicing and English speaking tutorials for foreign tourists IMHO. Muchas gracias to Irene Serviano for these photos.

A Dinner Date To Remember

Guess who sneaked into the country? Yours truly was very honored to join the Allan Razo family, the Celso family, Ms. Huang along with Lito Beltran for a dinner date in Maxims last night. Master Razo luckily showed me shots of his expensive, huge 24" X 20" view camera on a wooden tripod-it's truly impressive to behold and just condusive to produce great masterpieces with!

Zamboanga City Photo Workshop

Thanks to the FPPF's chairperson Edi Huang, Lito Beltran and Brian Lee for making my out-of-town photo workshop available to our fellow-countryment in the far south. Pro photog Elwin Noche will accompany yours truly, so, see you all there this coming weekend!

Nikon Pros On Viral Video

Kudos to Nikon Pro's Director Paul Ticzon for such an awesome cinematic treatment, and to CEO Anderson Cho of Columbia Digital for making this bombastic video a reality. So far this blows all local competitors' video equivalent far, far away! To my fellow-Nikon knights: may the FORCE be with you guys 4ever! Salud!
