The Pearl Photo Shoot with Tonie

It has been two years since I did a decent photoshoot with Tonie. The schedule, the theme and the fact that this girl is so damn busy are the factors to blame. But then finally, last Thursday, I did get to shoot her.

There is really no definitive theme actually as we ended up doing a fun shoot. The pearl is just an accessory we highlighted. I did three types of shoot on my set. One high key, on a black background and another with a red backlight. And I can say all are superb. 

We met Tonie at around 7pm just outside her accommodation and proceeded to a fashion store to buy the dress needed for the shoot. It feels awkward helping a girl looking for a dress when the lingerie section is just beside us and me surrounded by Arab ladies. After that, we went to Sir Ed’s crib to proceed with the shoot.

The pizza arrived before the shoot proper plus the pancit and lumpiang shanghai prepared by Mam Lorie makes us eat first before snapping our cameras. Unfortunately or fortunately, Tonie didn’t join us since she doesn’t want any bulging tummy during the shoot. But as for us photographers, we having a big tummy doesn’t matter.

The full shoot lasted til midnight. And with an awesome canon photographers with me plus an equally stunning model, I can say that the shoot is a wonderful one.

Here is the BTS (behind the scene) video of our photoshoot.

P.S. ; After the shoot, we (jace, tikboy, julian, me) decided to unwind and relax at Starbucks. Thanks to Juliano for the treat. We left past 2am with smiles because of our shots and a prospective model we just met.

113th Phil Independence Day

113th Independence day. 113 years that the Philippines is considered free and independent. We have progressed since. We might not have the privilege of being under a “better” US government or Spanish government but we are free. We are liberated. 

Freedom, for me, is more important than privileges. It is more important that you can do anything you want, anywhere you want. And not being asked to do something out of your liking.

WARP celebrates the 113th Philippine Independence Day together with the common crowd. Shooting at their liking and enjoying every moment of the event. With camera at their helm they captured the event the way they wanted to. Snapshots of people,  taking Group Shots anywhere (I mean literally) and roaming around the event shooting everything like predators eager for a kill.

teAM Creations takes over booth no. 17 with BnB and Simply Pinoy Mag. Angel rocks the runway at the Gala Night. Econ and the rest of Areacode974 rocks the stage as well as Lyka leading the vocals together with her Eccentric Band.  Phoya and Gorgatz WARP members show their wares at the Transhow. ProudNoypi banners their personalized shirts at the event. WARP is just everywhere. You may not see all of  them wearing an official badge photographer around their neck but you will see the radical trademark all around.

People tends to get attracted to what is popular. To things that will bring them recognition and gratitude. We may not be as rich as other Spanish or American colony but we are free and liberated. We can do things “more”, we can do things we “like”. We may not be registered but we are recognized.

Kudos WARP. Keep being radical. Happy Independence day.
