The Lighthouse Studio Photography Workshop Series 02 February 19, 2010

Posted by thelighthousestudio in workshop.

My main goal is to impart what I know in portraiture in a studio setting and be confident that you can handle a shoot in a studio on your own after this workshop and create professional looking portraits” Those were my words during the first day of The Lighthouse Studio Photography Workshop Series! This weekend will be the last two sessions of the 8 day workshop that started last January 30. An interesting mix of participants from different walks of life, a student, a doctor, an architect etc. some are shy, ACTUALLY most of them are… some do talk when scolded at, kidding! 

Tomorrow is the culminating activity of the workshop, each one of them was encouraged (if not forced lolz) to create their own concept discussed in an open forum weeks ago and was finalized last Thursday. Each one of them will be provided with a model of their preference (male/female) and two make up artists, wardrobes are taken care of as well, so all they have to do really is to take care of the shoot proper and handle Pressure! haha! Guys, good luck!!!

Here below is the e-poster for the second batch of The Lighthouse Studio Photography Workshop Series! Feel free to copy and post it on your social network sites! or forward it to a friend who might be interested!

I’m Not Immoral Exhibit February 8, 2010

People of different colors gathered last December 30 at The Lighthouse Studio for the “I Am Not Immoral” Photo and Video Exhibit! A great way to retaliate is to celebrate, and that is what we did! We celebrated life and diversity! Please see photos below and click on links to view more! for more information on the project, please read additional text below! Many thanks to Jethro, Bruce and Francis for making this possible!


A brainchild of indie filmmaker-producer Jethro Patalinghug and celebrated fashion photographer Niccolo Cosme, the ‘I AM NOT IMMORAL!’ Photo and Video Project is partly a response to the Commission on Elections 2nd Division’s decision to dismiss the petition of Ang Ladlad LGBT Party to take part in the 2010 National Elections on the alleged grounds that “petitioner tolerates immorality which offends religious beliefs” and that “homosexuals are a threat to the youth.”

As a registered non-profit organization working on social change for and by young Filipino lesbians, gays, bakla, bayot, bantut, bisexuals, tomboy, transgenders, transsexuals, intersex (LGBTI) and other sexual and gender minorities (SGM) from the grassroots, Philippine Forum on Sports, Culture, Sexuality and Human Rights (TEAM PILIPINAS) believes that society’s view on LGBTIs and SGMs as either being mentally disordered, sinners or immoral people is wrong, oppressive and unjust and that there is a need to raise people’s awareness on these issues and to mobilize public action against such discriminatory views. This Photo and Video Project is our attempt at fulfilling those needs.

As some of you know I just got back from my Vietnam and Cambodia trip which I will share with you guys on another post!!! To Kate and Paolo thanks so much for accommodating us! And to the whole of Siem Reap Okun Charan! 🙂 Back to work for me and back to the workshop! It was the 3rd day of this 8 day workshop at the Lighthouse Studio, and we had 3 male models who posed for me and  the participants, each one of them got their first hands on shoot with an actual model (last week they did not have a choice but to shoot me haha!) posting here are models Clark, Patrick and Adam! Thank you guys for your time! Tomorrow will be another hands on shoot with 3 female models, I am quite interested to know if they can identify the difference between shooting a male and a female model, we shall find out! Here are some of the head shots I took early today!
