First Light 2020

  I don’t normally celebrate holidays the usual way, if anything I’d rather spend it on either resting, doing something productive or taking photographs of scenes that I encounter. I prefer a stress free day, specially when you’ve been through the wedding season with continuous days of shooting, less sleep and long days. Every Year I start it with shooting the First Sunrise.

The Parol’s of San Fernando

Celebrating Christmas here in the Philippines starts as early as October. One of the  Filipino way of showing its Christmasy feels is by hanging up a Parol.

Panagbenga Night Scenes 2018

I had the urge to go out and enjoy the Panagbenga night scene just before the festivities end. It can be daunting going around in Baguio alone, specially with a camera set up to shoot some long exposures. I just had to satisfy my urge. When that switch flicks on, it’s hard to put of, except when my camera runs out of batteries. My route … Continue reading Panagbenga Night Scenes 2018

This has become our tradition … Continue reading First Light 2018

Sunset at the Strawberry Farm

This photograph was taken at the La Trinidad Strawberry Farm back in November of 2011. The garden plots were being readied for the plantation of the strawberries at this time. November here in the Cordilleras is the time when the temperature starts to drop, but the rain comes to a hold which is the ideal climate for strawberries to grow. Dry and cold. The initial … Continue reading Sunset at the Strawberry Farm

El Garahe Studios La Union getaway: Sunset at Urbiztondo

The view of the sea always gets me into a trance. The sound of the waves crashing is like a song putting me at ease. The wind carrying a little splash cools the warm day that passed. As the sun sets, its color sedates me and brings me to a halt, appreciating the canvas presented. Signaling yet another day finished. As darkness engulfs the light, … Continue reading El Garahe Studios La Union getaway: Sunset at Urbiztondo
