I never thought that I would actually shoot for one of my favorite channels on cable… and when I received that call for a meeting, I was dead excited! I was so curious! Me shoot for National Geographic? And so it has materialized, 3 shooting days at The Lighthouse Studio, it was fun! yes fun! and a great learning experience. Each personality that I shot also had to sit down for the video interview (which will also air on the channel) they were asked to prepare questions, things that they are or have been curious about, and the more they ask the more I got curious about a lot of things.

In an interview I was asked “If you had the chance to ask a question, what are you curious about and why?” And I said
“I have always wondered about how vast the universe is, I mean, our mind (brain) is only capable of understanding a fraction of reality, even if we come up with measurements from machines or formulas made by geniuses, these are only understandings which our brains can understand… I wonder, will there be ever a time when it would be possible to expand our understanding capacity to a more super human understanding?” did you understand all that? haha!

Most great ideas, concepts or story starts with “what if’s”, curiosity… Live curiously! let’s kill boredom!

Please visit the National Geographic Channel Live Curious Photo Exhibit atThe Gallery, Greenbelt 5 on Oct 3-4. Glorietta on Oct 7-10. Trinoma on Oct 21-24. Bonifacio High Street on Nov 13-14.

See the rest on the photo exhibit! see the schedule above!

…. we see … we feel … we ignore … we live …. we walk on dying beauty … as she comes out of the earth to plead for life … not hers but ours … we look with blind eyes … hear with deaf ears … we allow death … and conscious rage defile the earth … one day she will come … take us all …. into the earth … no more pain … no more greed … no more ubiquitous indifference … just …. the … earth ….

…. my gratitude to the swishgoddess for her inspiring beauty ….

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!

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!



As Himself 

In Character, as Ate Glow “Is that my mole? Oh its a fly”


Never a dull moment with Renee Boy, Watch out for our high fashion shoot with fab ternos from masters Frederick Peralta and Renee Salud! A must see! Special thanks to Robert Caindoc for the hair and make up!
