9 Years in the business! Yup! that is what Kaye Brosas and myself are both celebrating this year! And in line with that celebration Kaye will be having an anniversary concert this February entitled “K9“! And she had asked me to take care of her poster and pr photos! fun fun fun! There is always something about shooting comedians/performers! and there is always something about shooting Kaye Brosas! She is definitely  hilarious and is pretty much game with whatever I ask her to do, squat, bend over, split! anything just to get a fantastic shot! Will post more of her photos soon! and details about K9 concert! enjoy the photos!

I got the chance to meet Rep. Risa last December during the UNAIDS MOVE shoot at a different studio in Makati (Not Lighthouse) I cant forget that exact moment, I was joking around with friends while waiting for her, and said the word “Echusero!” (An expression of disapproval) although it was more like of a shout really, and I saw everybody’s faces looking past me, it must be the door! I turned around! and behold, the congresswoman! I almost fainted, I said, “I’m so sorry!” and she laughed and said “It’s okay!” I approached her and introduced myself… right at that very moment I fell in love with her! I would love to have a Senator as approachable as her! Here is my shot of her yesterday which will be used for her campaign for this year’s election. Mabuhay!!!

I arrived at SM Makati at around 3pm with my loyal assistants Pj and Rj (Heckel and Jeckel) and Dwight lolz! That afternoon’s task was to do an actual photo shoot within an event! Yes, an actual fashion shoot at the mall while being watched by invited guests and shoppers! It was Watsons’ launch on their expansion, aiming to make Watsons the beauty destination of the country! (I LOVE WATSONS lolz) Upon setting up I was asked to go to the basement to attend the briefing, and I was like wow wow wow! Fantastic models, fantastic make up and the HAIR! matched with really great outfits! The only dilemma now is how to shoot them!?!? I was given such small area… and I only brought two heads (lights) and a giant boom stand! 

Show starts, curtain opens… walk the cat walk b%$%s! I love love loved it! A giant frame on the stage, seamless tableau of gorgeous models coming out to life and they strut their way towards the crowd! and then, it was my turn! Tim Yap and Karen Pamintuan “Please come here on the other side and witness a live fashion shoot by renowned fashion photographer, Niccolo Cosme”!!! (I flet like I was supposed to SING) haha!

ACT 1. I walk towards my supposed spot, which at that time is packed with other photographers and video peeps… I was like, okay, where do I go? I made a very kind gesture of “please give me some space” kinda monstra which did result to them walking an inch away from me. I knew there was just no way to deal with this and I knew I just had to shoot… so shoot I did… instructed Rj a few times to move the light closer as the left side was a bit dark. I have asked a model on my right to sit down instead as she looked so big from where she was standing, although I know she could have sat more fashionably from what you could see on the photo… The other photographer’s flashes were causing my studio lights to pop like popcorns… It felt like a microwave oven, I was about to explode!!! haha! nevertheless, I was able to deliver what was expected from me and I left with a smile… I finished 30 minutes ahead of time! yay! 

Today’s task is over! Tomorrow a talk at Edsa Shang, with doctors!!!! Scurd!

Like what I mentioned last week! We have model/actress/FHM cover girl Paloma Esmeria coming at the Lighthouse Studio this week! The team thought of producing something with a summer feel, relaxed, beauty headshots, something that would deviate away from the usual sexy shoots Paloma is used to. There is no doubt that Paloma is one real beauty! I love love lovesit! I’m sure this wet look will make you wet…lolz! Thanks to Paul dela Merced and Fennie Tan! Good job guys!

Photography: Niccolo Cosme

Stylist: Paul dela Merced

Make Up: Fennie Tan

Yes it’s the President! January 18, 2010

A little history

When I was still a budding photographer (please dont ask what year lolz) I was encouraged to join a photo contest organized by Giftgate and Fuji! Anxious as it was my very first time to join a photo contest (or any contest for that matter) I gathered my cousins and friends and shot them with hello kitty dolls and swatch watches (it was a requirement) I edited the photos and hurriedly printed them and submitted them as my entries. Excited, I asked the personnel at Fuji if a lot of people had submitted their entries already (I was thinking, the lesser entries the more chances I could win! haha) The personnel told me that they have already received close to a thousand (or more) entries which really rattled me! I was like… okay, there goes my chance! haha! And she added “Someone even submitted a photo of Cory Aquino” and my whole world fell apart. I was like… Shit. Although that challenged me, what can I possibly do? who can I possibly get to pose for me that would have the same stature as the former president of the philippines?

Hi! Come closer! Don’t be shy! This is the closest you can get to the president! Noh!” – Renee Boy AKA Ate Glow

We won the people’s choice award! Not bad for a first timer right?!? We won 100 thousand worth of prizes! I then joined the following year and won 4th place! and the year after that and won 1st prize!!! and I stopped and gave way to others! haha! There you have it, that’s how our friendship began, so ladies and gents, boys and transgender, at the Lighthouse, Ate Glow!

I’m sure you’ve seen close up shots like this wherein a very prominent ring around the iris pops out! And today I thought I want something like that and would try out the ring light at the Lighthouse!  The effect of this particular light is “even lighting”, you certainly wont get any shadows with this one! I like this particular effect coz it looks raw and fresh at the same time! (or maybe its just me thinking that way haha) I found a link online that teaches you how to make an improvised ring light! or at least would give you the same effect! click here click click! enjoy the read and enjoy my close up (haha!)
