Its been a while since I last used my old studio lights and I've been using Nikon speedlights to lit my subjects in my assignments for quite sometime. Using the powerful strobes still gives that hi detail and quality that the smaller lights have difficulty squeezing out. Here are some shots of Nic and Kat that I took yesterday.

I thought of sharing some portraits of Lisa and baby Yeshua I took during the Crossroad retreat I attended last weekend. Yeshua was really cool and contented, he would even allow me to carry him without any fuss about it. He was really cute! :D

I just love photographing people and once in a while a get to do some family portraits. Taking photos in different environments also makes it interesting for me. Spending time with the people I work with makes me feel as a part of the family as well.
When Ricson and Mabel proposed that we do our engagement portraits at Mt. Pulag, I honestly thought it would be a walk in the park. Doing some research, I discovered that it is the second highest mountain in the Philippines at 2,922 meters above sea level - still had no idea how difficult this would be... After 22 hours of land travel,12 grueling hours of trekking and sleeping for 7 hours below 10 degrees, It finally struck me that this is not your typical engagement portrait! Being a typical guy not exposed to the harsh conditions of mountaineering I'm just so glad I survived the challenge. Thanks Ricson and Mabel for the unforgettable experience. At this point, I wonder what greater challenge awaits me in my career?? This is one engagement portrait session that I definitely have classified as "EXTREME!" :D
