One morning in June 2014, we shot at my studio home for some new images for actor and model Aldred Gatchalian. He was game to play around with wardrobe and layouts. He was on the cusp of "relaunching" his acting career with a new manager then. All the best to you, Aldred.

Piolo Pascual is the  country's most celebrated actor in the Philippines today. Writing about Piolo and photographing him for the book remains to be one of the most sterling experiences in my profession. Being a true friend took on a new meaning, as this very private actor opened his home to me...i rummaged through his scrapbooks from childhood, invaded his fridge, and even followed him to bed and the bathroom. I wanted people to see how real this star is. And seeing that reality only added to his mystery, it seems.  It was an honor and a pleasure I wanted to share with every reader of PIOLO:BELIEVING (A PICTORIAL BIOGRAPHY OF PIOLO PASCUAL). There were thousand of pictures, only 170 plus could be included in the book. Hopefully, I can post more of what I've taken of Piolo, here in this blog -- spicy and interesting snaps that didn't make it to print. Hope y'all stick around for another doze of PIOLO pics.

Derek Ramsay On Shaving

I don't quite remember how Derek looked like when he had a full head of hair. I thought about this when I shot Derek for Belo Man in 2012. The star of TV5's Kidlat really takes good care of his skin and his physique obviously.

ANGEL AQUINO, The Face and Body of The Spa

For three years, I have photographed actress and supermodel Angel Aquino for The Spa, a premier chain of luxurious spas in the Philippines, and at each time, I am mesmerized by just how gloriously beautiful a Filipina can be. Practically speechless, I would go through twenty minutes of shooting her with hardly a word of direction coming from me -- the woman  knows exactly what to do and say with her expressions. She is to me, the quintessence of what a model should be.
