Marc Mendoza

Sometimes as a photographer you just want to shoot. If you know another photographer, there are times you can usually find him or her wanting to do the same. If that other photographer also likes to spend time in front of the camera, you have a subject as well. Well, it happened that my friend Marc Mendoza and I both had the same day free and we were both itching to do a shoot. We couldn't find anyone who wanted to model for us. It was summer in the Philippines and neither of us wanted to do more urban Manila scenery because it was almost 100 degrees! As Marc is a good photographer and also quite good in front of the camera, I had my subject for the day. Here's the best image I caught of him:

Ghost from the Past

Today I thought I'd share one of my favorite images shot several years ago of my good friend Yucel while he was showing me around the old walled city of Intramuros in Manila one day when I had to renew my visa at the Department of Immigration there. It was a great time and yielded some fun images, this being my favorite, shot in the church of San Augustine. I like the way the motion creates something of a ghostly appearance.
