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

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!
