It's been a year since I had my last post here in blogspot. With the rise of facebook , my focus was all there. Uploaded my latest images but with limitations that only friends can view my latest works. Now here are some of latest works , with the help of Adobe Photoshop of course... My " before and after "

" L A Y E R S " --- Adobe Photoshop workshop for BSIT

A basic photoshop workshop for my fellow BSIT students. I hope it can open doors to those who have potential and hidden talents. I can see lots of promising students and by these, they'll be inspired and think that not all BSIT students will end up being computer programmers...

My first time and I'm quite excited...


1 day basic ADOBE PHOTOSHOP workshop
" Learn the basics and discover your potential "

More details to be posted soon... cheers and GOD BLESS US ALL...!

" welcome to my journal "'s been a while since I posted my last blog entry here...It was March 25, 2009 with my post " Save the Best for Last " . Nothing much now, just finished my summer class and will be having two weeks of vacation and I found it so boring...

I just had my three straight saturday wedding coverage with Lito Sy Studio Davao last May 16 & 23 and my last wedding assignment for this month is with Mr. Lito Sy this coming May 30, 2009. ( excited )

So now there's a " temporary comeback " but let's wait and see what will happen next. Honestly , I miss my friends...I miss shooting them..:)

Ok, let me start with this ..." welcome to my journal " which I am now focusing..I want to know more on blogging. To share my thoughts, ideas and something that is healthy.

Here's my new design for my blogspot header as well as my new multiply header ...

A product of my boredom ....I found it just simple but I liked it...Hope you like it too... A slight play with PS brush with some color overlays..

So guys checkout my journal at

I'm currently reinventing the site page and still needs more time so just enjoy the content and let me know your thoughts...

UNLEASH the ArtisT in YOU ....

Finally I got the chance to share with you my site reinvention. Featuring my new header. At last, it really satisfied my taste. An 800 x 519 @ 72 dpi photo really fits the screen. Now I know ... :) . Special thanks to Jay Olea for helping me out. The feeling is so great now that I feel that my site is complete. I felt like I was complete too !


Maybe that phrase would do. It's up to you how you understand it, apply it and play with it. It's just a matter of passion and dedication towards your artistry. It's only YOU who can discover it.

The header image featuring Mikaella Olarte wayback 2007 . A very memorable portrait shot I made for her, simple yet full of expression and dramatic lighting. And to my friends / studio clients which are featured here, I guess you the reason for awakening the " artist in me " ...

Thanks for inspiring me ...

Enjoy everyone !

Yes you heard it right...I'm gonna be the studio photographer on all the days of February from 10am to 4pm on weekdays and 10-7pm during weekends. I have so many things in mind for I have the chance for a long shooting schedule in the studio. But then the priority will be the walk-in clients.For my friends, you can pm or text me if you want a slot this February, I'll count you in.

Recently, I had the " PROJECT BLACKOUT " and it's open for everyone who wants to have it. Either solo or group shot will do. And I am thinking of some RED this month. Was thinking more on couple sessions ( lovers )...

" PROJECT LADY in REd " in addition to my portfolio. A blend of fashion and portrait tastefully done with the play of light. I guess that would do.

I just had a session with MAi Li with the " Step Up " theme will will be posted soon and on Tuesday, its gonna be " The Return of the Queen " ... It's Mikas this Tuesday ...

It's a hectic schedule this February and will be doing also my wedding album projects whenever I get a chance...

Wish me luck...

Here's my info just in case....
