Portraits

Jo Castillo

May 25, 2015

I like shooting portraits but I don’t do it that often these days. Weekdays I work 8-9 hours a day and then on weekends I would sometimes just prefer to spend it resting or catching up on errands I didn’t have time for during the week. Other weekends I’m out traveling, surfing, or just beach bumming and couldn’t be bothered to take my camera out.

Jo reached out to me a few months ago for a fun shoot and since I was landlocked for a few months I thought why the hell not. On the day of the shoot I didn’t feel like shooting at all and wasn’t expecting much from myself.

It took a while and the first 20 shots were crap but I relaxed, Jo relaxed and it went quite well, better than we all expected. Here are some of my favorites:

The first half of the shoot was in my bedroom at our old apartment in Makati then we moved to the street where I usually skate just as the sun was about to set.

DSC_0950 I loved this street, it had a big graffiti wall and one of the few roads in this part of Makati where we can skate on weekends. This was also the last shoot I did in San Antonio because 2 weeks later we moved to Fort Bonifacio and everything we need or want we can just go to BGC or Mckinley.

Yoga with Weizel

April 4, 2015

A fun shoot in Silang, Cavite last year with my friend Weizel. She runs and owns Cocogreen, one of my favorite plant based stores in the city. She’s a vegan chef and a yoga teacher too. Shooting yoga is hard, this is my second try and it’s quite a challenge. You have to be familiar with the poses, check alignment and know which body parts to adjust to make the shot work. Not my best work but something I definitely wanna try again.

My favorite kiddo in the whole wide world. So pretty and always willing to pose for me. She actually squeals with glee when she sees me holding my camera. And selfies, this girl is a pro at taking selfies, I hold up my phone and we would spend the next few minutes taking car selfies. 😀

A day with thirdy

January 17, 2015

Spent a day as a volunteer at the Cerebral Palsy Foundation in San Antonio Village, Makati and got to know Thirdy and his mom. Thirdy has cerebral palsy and mild autism. His favorite person is his mom and loves the sun and being outside a lot. I caught him several times leaning his head back with closed eyes just drinking in the sunshine with a blissful expression on his face. Such a cute and charming kid I could take photos of him all day long.

Camilla

March 26, 2014

It was my last day in Bali and what better way to cap it off with than a fun portrait shoot? We were staying at Rapture Surf Camp in Padang Padang and it was such a gorgeous place plus the camp had a pool that made a perfect setting for the portraits that I had in mind.

Camilla was one of the girls that I met at the camp. She’s from Sweden and is traveling around Asia for a few months with her friend Astrid. I saw how striking her eyes were and I knew I wanted to photograph her, so stoked that she was game even though she barely knew me.
