Portraiture Series: Karina, Zsahara and Krystal Vee
This is the 3rd year of my good friend ("kapatid/kumpare") Manny Librodo's exclusive portraiture workshop in Davao, and I am privileged to be assisting as a mentor for the participants. Manny is a renowned multi-awarded international photographer who has inspired me in my journey through photography few years back.
My gratitude to our three beautiful models: Karina Cabiling and Zsahara Mantawil of Glam Models; and the refreshing and vibrant Thai model and Hollywood actress Krystal Vee (for Virulchanya) who flew in from Bangkok with Manny for this workshop.
Gowns were designed by Ann Chaves of Purple Closet in Manila and ethnic glam wardrobe by Boy Guinoo. Makeup was superbly done by Otoi Mercado and hair by Joan.
My fellow mentors for the 2nd year in a row were Paul Borromeo, Dennis Tan, Rhonson Ng, Ty Cruz, Kat Mercado, and Ely Villarosa. We hope we have coached our teams well during the session, which is called Passion for Portraiture.
Shoot was done the whole day in the scenic Loleng's Mountain Resort. Manny's lecture was held in Lispher Inn.
I hope to be adding more images as I sort through my files. I share with you my passion.
