OH, SHOOT!

The moment Larry Halili of My316Photo wrote me requesting for a bridal bouquet for a photo workshop his company is holding in Pampanga, I didn't have second thoughts of saying sure, we'd be glad to provide you guys one!

I don't call it frustration (I simply call it 'lack of training'), but I have always been fascinated with the art of photography. Every now and then, I shoot, too, just to see if I have any chance at all of making any photo worth looking at, ha ha! At any rate, Vatel Manila has always been supportive of our photographer friends in the industry which explains why we use official wedding photos when we blog.

This workshop in Pampanga, among others, is our small way of contributing to the training of future photographers. All the best to you! Keep on shooting! :-)

HAPPY PEOPLE EAT HAPPY FOOD!

Last February 2011, several wedding suppliers came together in what would be a monthly gathering of friends. This third meeting last May 19 saw us eating out at this cute, basement restaurant called Nomnomnom Happy Food, first referred to us by Lace T. of K. by Cunanan Catering. Need we say that the resto looked like a K setup? Ha ha! The food was good, too, and the company, even better. :-)

What led you to a life pursuing images?

[To make the] long story short, it actually came out of [a] need. I run a graphic design company in Pampanga and part of it includes designing marketing collaterals. There came a point when the photos I was being asked to use by my clients just didn't cut it, so I decided to do it myself. I didn't know anything about photography then. All I was certain of was how I wanted the photos to look like. What followed were a lot of trial and error sessions, endless Googling, and several purchases from the bookstore. It was a pretty bold move back then, but I'm glad I did it.

Tell us about your nature as a photographer.

As part-furniture and interiors photographer, my job is to make sure that my clients' works look as good in photos as they do in real life - which is actually easier said than done. Furniture and interiors, after all, are two of the more difficult subjects to shoot. So early on, I had to train myself to master, con…
