    Thank you for being a fan of my work, but I get asked questions like these way too often! I can not stress this enough— your gear or version of photoshop should not define the quality of your work.

    I’ve even taken some pretty good photos with my phone. Just keep shooting. Experiment with whatever camera you have, and try out others. Get creative!

    My most recent purchase was an 18-55mm fisheye lens. I usually use this for event photography. My other lenses, which I use for more “proper” type shoots are a 20-70mm 2.8L lens and a 50mm

    When I’m not at home bumming in my couch, you will definitely find me in these places in Manila:

    1) BLACK MARKET, which is located in Sabio St. Makati (Near Pasong Tamo extension)

    It may sound a little biased cause I actually work here (I handle their social media marketing and take event photos), but I’m glad I do! It’s definitely more underground than most bars. I mean, there isn’t even have a sign on the door! I also believe this is the only club in Manila where we don’t allow DJ’s to play anything Top 40’s, so I can assure you the music is always good.

    Black Market has also hosted really good international acts like Soulection, Free the Robots, B Bravo, Ladyton, The Mighty Mos Def, and this weekend we have DJ Nu-Mark from Jurassic 5.

    For more information on BLACK MARKET, visit their facebook page.

    2) TODAY x FUTURE located in Cubao. Although it’s a bit of a travel for me, I find myself in this place at least once or twice a week. Music is on point and the liquor is cheap. They also happen to have really good pizza!

    3) Gig venues like Saguijo, Route 196, B Side, 121. My boyfriend is in several bands, and I love tagging along with them! This is also definitely a great way to meet some cool locals.

     

  7. Anonymous said: Do you have your own studio? Do you have other job before you start doing photography? Thank you! I'm a bit torn between graphic designing and photography. I'm a fresh grad and I don't know where to start. :( Anyways, love love love your photos! <3 <3 <3

    I always say, “The world is my studio”, and this is because a) you should be able to shoot anywhere and everywhere, and b) I don’t have a studio of my own. I use the guest room in my apartment for shoots a lot. If it requires something bigger, I rent a studio out. One day I hope to have a studio of my own.

    When I was a fresh grad, I didn’t exactly know what to do either. I traveled first and attempted to figure it out from there. If you have this luxury, I highly reccomend it.

    I don’t think you should necessarily be torn between graphic design and photography, cause I try to apply both those talents into my work. Don’t worry, you’ll figure it out. Hope this helps!

     

  8. Inez and Allan go to Clark

    If you follow my blog, you probably know that it’s been awhile since I wrote about anything, and that’s because I’ve been busy working— Marketing and PR work for Black Market, photo shoots here and there; but I’ll save all that for a separate entry. I really have so much to tell all of you!

    I have been in dire need of a vacation for awhile now. I love living in Manila, but staying there too long can drive anyone crazy. I asked my good friend, Angelo Mendez, if I could stay in his hotel in Clark, Pampanga on a homie discount. He decided that if I take pictures of his newest room, I get to stay in it for free. Such a sweet deal! One of the many perks of being a photographer.

    The drive to Clark from Manila was only around 2 hours or less, which was a lot faster compared to the last time I was there, which was for the 7107 Music Festival (which also coincidentally happens to also be the last time I blogged!) 

    It was my first time at The Penthouse Hotel, and I have to say I was already impressed the minute I arrived. 

    image

    They had a pretty sick lobby, which had an equally sick bar (where you can claim your welcome drink!) but more importantly, their staff was very friendly and accommodating.

    We were escorted to our room and the hallway gave me the same feeling I had when I first walked in a Virgin America flight! 

    image

    image

    We were assigned to room 202. When we entered, I was so shocked because this definitely was no ordinary room. Angelo hooked me up with a SUITE! It was much, much fancier than I thought.

    We even had a kitchen area! Not that we ever used it, but it was nice to have the option.

    image

    When the bellboy showed us our room, I didn’t know whether to hug him or cry, because it was so beautiful. Look at how huge this bed is!

    image

    image

    The pictures don’t even do it justice, so we took a video of us jumping on it. I think we could have fit more than ten people in there!

    And the even more epic part was… there was a hot tub right next to it!

    image

    image

    We spent at least 80% of our vacation in this room. The only time we managed to get our butts out of that bed and hot tub was when we got hungry, and decided to stop ordering room service.

    The Penthouse Hotel is located on Walking Street, which is one big tourist fest. We wanted to check out Taqueria Real (which is also owned by Angelo) but they were closed for lunch! BOO!

    image

    so we came back for dinner, and boy was it worth it. We tried one of each thing on the menu! Definitely the closest tacos to the ones I used to have in San Francisco!

    Big thank you to Angelo for showing me and Allan a great time in Clark!

    I’m so proud of all the establishments he’s opened up there. Aside from The Penthouse and Taqueria Real, he also owns High Society nightclub, The Lewis Grand Hotel (where we ended up swimming that night) and a drive-inn motel too, apparently. That guy definitely has got it good!

    I had a great time at The Penthouse Hotel. You will too!
