Will be posting instructions soon on how to take part! This is the 3rd Year Anniversary of Project Headshot Clinic! Merging advocacies and profile photos online! I am attaching below the original write up I wrote back in 2007! since then we have done more than 10 Headshot Clinics in Manila, and around Asia Pacific and China. This November’s shoot will be launched in December on World AIDS Day in partnership with UNAIDS (on our 3rd year as well)

2007-2008 I wrote: Headshot Clinic was born to give awareness to the importance of “Social Network Sites” and the importance of our virtual presence online. Started out as a joke when a good number of people started asking me to take their photos for their social network sites like myspace, friendster, multiply and facebook, I thought, are they freaking nuts? haha! A photo shoot just for that was kind of too much I thought. But later realized the importance of one’s virtual presence in the global village, that having a good photo on our portals online is actually an investment.
I sent out invitations online, to several friends & peers, and more than 60 people showed up for their photos to be taken. A maximum time of 5 minutes per person was allotted for their headshots. The shoot started at 12nn and ended at around 8:30pm. 62 of us will be uploading our headshots on January 27 till the midnight of the 28th! Headshot Clinic- Melbourne (who got the inspiration from us) will be launching on a later date. ——> xxx

He came in the studio, standing taller than I expected, he was on his boots, shook our hands and brought out a bottle of rum!… OMG! I waited for this very moment! This is the Pinoy Rock God! and if you dont know who Pepe Smith is, then I guess your neither a pinoy, or a rocker dude… dudette… err… whatever. haha!

Pepe is now the endorser of the clothing line Mental, together with his supermodel daughter Sanya! I tell you guys, that was one hell of a shoot! Both father and daughter was just perfect for this campaign, often we would tell each other, “So Sanya, thats where you got those kicks from” Pepe would start posing standing, then would sit down, fly like a bird, then dive on the floor and swim… he played with my violin and my vintage transistor radio! Crazy! and I understand why Mental got them for this! haha! Rock and Roll!

More of Pepe and Sanya soon! xxx

…. 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 ….

The 2nd Lightworks Exhibit has an “Earth” theme. Each of my students were given the chance to conceptualize something that is socially relevant to todays issues on climate change, waste management, global warming etc. I said, I want photographs that would have statements without having to put “texts” on them, images that would talk and perhaps remind the audience that “hey, this is what’s happening” and hopefully push individuals or groups to act on the problems that we all face today. I am proud to say that my students were able to put  Portraiture, Glamour, Fashion and Beauty together with this great advocacy to save our planet.

You are all invited to come on September 04, 2010 at the Lighthouse Studio at 7pm!

(from http://www.stir.ph/LM/articles~level2/id…4/article.html)

“Being the very first awards show mounted by the magazine, the Star Studio Celebrity Style Awards selected its nominees via a thorough selection process. The Star Studio editorial team collated entries for each category based on a specific style criteria. To complete the process, a formidable “Style Council,” comprised of an exclusive group of experts from different style and fashion related industries, deliberated and decided on the final five nominees per category.

The Star Studio Celebrity Style Awards categories are divided into three types: People’s Choice Awards, Technical Awards and Celebrity Awards. A second style council will be convened to decide on the winners for both Technical and Celebrity Awards categories, while the winners for People’s Choice will be based on public voting via texting. The voting period for the People’s Choice Awards will be from 12nn of July 7 to 12nn of September 3.

Aside from the presentation of nominees, the launch party of the Star Studio Celebrity Style Awards also featured the “Wall of Stars” exhibit, where photos of celebrities from various fields come together to show that “sharing, caring and giving back to the community is always in style.” Photographed by Niccolo Cosme, the Wall of Stars exhibit is in support of Sagip Kapamilya and Kapit Bisig Para Sa Ilog Pasig Foundation.

The Star Studio Celebrity Style Awards is set to culminate in a glittering and glamorous awards night and fashion show come October. For more updates about the Star Studio Celebrity Style Awards, simply log on to http://starstudio.multiply.com/.”

Will post all 50 photos soon! 🙂 cheers!
