Four years of ride into the world of photography and I am still enjoying the exciting loops and turns this journey has offered me.
Pbase has opened a lot of new exciting opportunities for me. I have been published in various international magazines (Digital Photo UK, Digital Camera UK, Mabuhay, Philippines, Digital Photography UK , among others) and I have appeared in other international publications in Poland, India, the US, etc. I am one of the featured photographers in UNICEF 2008 calendar/planner and will be appearing in their 2009 Wall Calendar). I also had conducted portraiture workshops in some of Asia's main cities and in Canada.
My ULTIMATE GOAL is to have my own COFFEE-TABLE book. Anybody who can help me achieve this, please contact me.:)
I am originally from the town of Lambunao, Iloilo Province, located in the central part of the Philippines. Currently, I teach in an international school here in Bangkok, Thailand.
