Weddings

My approach to Wedding Photography derived from the nature of work I routinely produce as an exhibiting Visual Artist, which focuses on documenting human behaviours, expressions and emotions through candid photography. Engaged in this practice for nearly two decades, I’ve come to develop a second-nature ability for anticipating and aesthetically composing “spur-of-the-moment” photographs before they transpire – creating for artistic perspectives …

Yoga in Times Square

Home Sweet Home – my first post since relocating back to New York City – the ONLY place you can happen to stumble upon 14,000+ attending the world’s largest Bikram Yoga class – centered in the busiest part of the city. Believe or not, most New Yorkers in their busy lives were completely oblivious, with comments such as “oh sh!t, …

Sniping in Manila

Sniping in Manila ain’t easy – at least with regards to most of Makati and some of the surrounding cities that make up Metro Manila. Despite frequenting this dense metropolis with over 10 visits in the last 4 years, I’ve found it difficult to produce a collection of works accounting for all demographics – where the missing pieces are the …

Behind closed doors; at open or private events; within personal circles or perhaps random acquaintances. For these occasions I’ve created a new category called “Social Studies” Here you’ll find candid photographs taken within social venues or environments — and …

Enter the Dragon

Perfectly fitting that the year of the Dragon would also mark the end of the world (as we know it) – with the Mayan Calendar predicting an evolved and enhanced state of spiritual awareness – at least for those who haven’t found themselves “third-eye-blind”. Whether the end of 2012 will also bring change to the world “as I see it” …

The Sydney Festival

Sniper’s Log – 2012-01-07: Happy New Year. I attended part of the Sydney Festival together with masses of folks excited to see several world-renowned artists perform live at Hyde Park. But somehow, I was more particularly excited to see the endless sea of interesting people I could Snipe. And so I Sniped, and Sniped – until I ran out of light, or …
