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

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!

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

2nd Lightworks Exhibit Teaser E-Posters September 2, 2010

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!
