Fashion-Probe features Singaporean designer Jeremy Chase. Two of his creation as a fashion design student of Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS) were used.
I was thrilled that he was able to fly-in Jodilly Pendre from the Philippines to model. She was also joined by another finalist of Asia's Next Top Model season 2, Nicole Lee.
The first time Next Models Management's representative asked me to do a test for their model I wasn't able to accommodate it due to timing. When I had an opportunity to produce a shoot I made sure that everything is organized.
There should always be time to learn new things and time to develop or enhance new skills. In my fashion photography I do that through a test shoot. Just like in any production I do, one key ingredient is the model. This test is all about our model, Bruna from Ideal People Model Management.
I usually focus on fashion photography yet sometimes I do portraiture as well, by special request. My friend's daughter is having her first birthday so we've shot this in preparations for the special occasion. Here's my personal selection of Baby Dana's photos:
Every year MSSC is having a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) that supports Earth Hour project of WWF-Philippines (World Wildlife Fund). This year the MSSC R&R Committee 2011 made an ambitious initiative the "Portraits Beyond the Hour".
A respected photographer in the fashion industry once said that the fashion trend from the past tends to be revived a decade after or more. He goes on by showing us throughout his workshop the sample of works from the past that has been re-introduced now in the modern age.
As a culminating activity of the creative portraiture workshop with Raymund Isaac, our photo club had arranged a series of funshoot to apply what the participants have learned from the workshop.
Months before the (PFW) Philippine Fashion Week Spring / Summer 2012, fashion designer Melchor Guinto and I has been planning for the shoot of his press kit for the big fashion event. Unlike our first press kit for PFW-Holiday 2011, we'd like to have a better output this season.
