On location shoot is indeed complicated. This experience is yet another lesson for me on how team effort plays a big role in pulling a shoot off successfully. Melchor and I had already been preparing for this shoot a month before the Philippine Fashion Week – Holiday 2012. He picked the theme “After work denizen” for his fashion show – the same theme which we used as well, for his press kit.

The history of June weddings goes all the way back to early Roman times, well over two thousand years ago. It is a great deal for the June brides-to-be to get wed this month and a huge part of the preparation goes to the wedding gown.
I'm sure everyone owns a pair of jeans nowadays. Classics, flared jeans, pedal pushers, oh-so-trendy skinnies - name it, and there’s a pair of jeans for every occasion, body type, or personality.
Some of you might know that I have been shooting press kits for Melchor Guinto for quite some time now. As we continue learning with fellow photographers in ShutterClique Photo Club and me pursuing Fashion-PRobe, I invited Melchor to feature his Fall/Winter Collection on this test shoot.
Fashion PRobe features Normannie “Manny” Santos – finalist of Project Runway Philippines Season 3 – whose 4 creations, including a wedding gown, are featured in this photo collection.
Fashion-PRobe features Nico Agustin – one of the founders and executive producers of Pilipinas Men's Fashion Week and the proprietor of Nico Agustin Menswear. Majority of his creations are geared toward menswear yet for this shoot he gave us a sneak peak on his ladies wear.
This season's theme "Nomades Courant", introduced us to another perspective of fashion designer Melchor Guinto. It mainly focused on plaid suits and trousers, and suits of lively, bright, and bold colors. I'm sure those who went to the show would understand why it is a different Mechor creation.
A week before our annual pilgrimage to my home town to commemorate the death anniversary of my mother, I was contacted by Denise from Adobo Magazine to shoot their Centerfold for the November-December issue.
Fashion-PRobe features Jeffrey Rogador – a young Filipino fashion designer, an alumnus of Fashion Institute of the Philippines, and part of the prestigious Philippine Fashion Week since 2007. He's the winner of “The BEST” Jeans Award in JEANSATION-2.
Last year I took the Fashion Photography Workshop with Raymund Isaac which improved my shooting skills. Others would ask me, “What are the photography workshops that I would recommend them taking?” and on top of my list is Raymund's workshop.
