Model Portfolio: Kim (Bikini Team TV Asian Tour 2019)
Now this is a face you would never get tired of shooting. Kim has that disarming look that just makes you melt to the floor. I’ve worked with this babe over the years and she certainly doesn’t disappoint. She just gets hotter and hotter.
In case you can’t get enough of Kim, you can always check out her IdolZone page and purchase her gravure photobook.
Model Portfolio: Carmeli
It was one of those friends who just wanted to tag along with another model friend who wanted to shoot, and next thing you know that friend is also shooting. Did you get that? How much wood would a woodchuck chuck wood if a woodchuck would chuck wood?
So there, turns out our model’s “friend” was just as hot as the main model.

Model Portfolio: Bianca (Bikini Team TV Asian Tour 2019)
When you go to trips like these, you aren’t so sure what’s making you sweat: the sun or the babes you’re shooting. Maybe a bit of both.
Thanks to Bikini Team TV, we’re forever in a fever.
Bianca is an Aussie fitness and glamour model. She’s currently based in LA for modeling stints. She was one of the main highlight models during this year’s Asian Tour. And what a darling to work with.

During my yearly trip to San Diego Comic Con, my first stop has always been my friend’s place in LA. I’ve always told him his room would be an awesome shooting venue, much to his skepticism.
Good thing a model / cosplayer friend was game to shoot. The shoot itself didn’t take more than 2 hours, and with that were able to knock out several looks already. We even had spare time to get ice cream nearby.
Model Portfolio: Nicole (Bikini Team TV Asian Tour 2019)
Nicole is one of those models where you just match brainwaves when you start shooting. It’s those times you hardly need to direct the model and she just moves naturally in the scene. Those my friends are the rare times when you make magic in front the camera.
Super thanks to the awesome folks of Bikini Team TV for tagging me along for another round of fun-filled week long shooting. This time we were hitting the sands of Bohol Beach Club. More
More posts in the coming weeks.
Model Portfolio: Janka
You gotta love it when your make-up artist also models. Janka is just that combination. I’ve been working with Janka for years doing various shoots from fun to work, and this is one of those fun shoots that I would think of. Nothing fancy. Every now and then you just need to get back to basics and do clean head shots.
Model Portfolio: Emilia
I had a fun time shooting with Emilia. This girl knows how to move. She’s been running her own content through Patreon and has been doing gravure modeling for quite some time.
As most of you guys know, gravure style glamour images have been a favorite subject of mine, and I’ve worked with various muses over the years (e.g. Jinri Park) with a certain batting average if a model can carry the look or not. Emilia knocks it off the park for sure. She knew how to move and make use of the surroundings with her poses.
I also like it that she’s very collaborative in the shoot planning. She brings her own props and works with whatever we have along. Can’t wait to shoot more sets with this idol.

This is part of that shoot with Enji as well.
Now only if Batangas was a surfing spot, because this babe surfs.

Model Portfolio: Allison
I wasn’t really supposed to shoot on this day, but a last minute peg got me running back to my condo for a camera. Allison was very lovely to work with and quite the trooper despite the strong aircon.

Model Portfolio: Khalee
Clean white sheets have always been a favorite scene to shoot in. Soft lights and easy on the eyes. These are one of the shoots that happened impromptu, and luckily Khalee was in town. As far as this shoot went, she was based in Boracay (working in a resort), and then went back for a few days. This would be like my 3rd shoot with her, and she’s always been a trooper to work with.
Model Portfolio: Myrtle Gail
Summer couldn’t just get any hotter, and what luck we got ourselves Myrtle Gail partly to blame for that. Enjoy the images guys!

Model Portfolio: Chelsea
And so I finally got to release these images after ages. It was one of those test shoots that got buried under the HD archives. I know Chelsea these images. Better late than never right? 🙂
We shot this at our usual stomping grounds in Penthouse Studios.

Model Portfolio: Cherry
I know we haven’t seen much of this girl in the scenes of as late, but I guess she’s enjoying her time off the modeling circuit. Of course we have a lot of content with Cherry over the years, so here’s one of those sets that didn’t really see the light of day until now. Enjoy the summer guys! Things are just getting hotter and hotter.

Model Portfolio: Laura
We didn’t know Daiana has an equally hot sister until now. Laura just came to Manila as of late to study English and get her modeling career started. We took this chance to shoot her at the studio and have a bit of fun. For somebody starting modeling, she sure knows how to work it.
Check out the YouTube video below to see how the shoot went!

Model Portfolio: Enji
Ok, Enji has been one of my dream cosplayers to work with ever since she become popular for her Supergirl costume. She has gone around the SEA region, often not getting invited to Manila for a convention. Luckily, she had the chance to be part of a con, and arrived in town a week before the con weekend.
Took this chance to bring her to the beach for some chillax time before the mayhem started.

Styling / Model: Enji Night
Of course Enji attended Comic Con Asia last March 2018. We made sure to shoot some cosplay while we’re at it.

Model Portfolio: Natalia
Nice of Natalia to think of us whenever she’s in town. She has been one of the fly-in regulars over the years, and she just gets hotter and hotter every time.
Something homey and relaxing this time around, so we just had her lounging around the condo.

Model Portfolio: Courtney
I know this something I’ve shot some time back, but this is one shoot trip that just keeps on giving. The Bikini Team TV Asian Tour is about to kick off in sunny Bohol this April, so no better way to get people excited other than releasing stuff we have!
Courtney is one of my trip favorites. We certainly did a lot of images over the past 5 days of the tour, enough stuff to keep on posting for a year. Hehehe.
Enjoy the shots guys!
Model Portfolio: Pashence
Prior to the Bikini Team Asian Tour 2017, Pashence was in town early so we thought of getting some images out just for fun.
I know, this content should’ve been out ages ago. But better late than never right?

Model Portfolio: Samantha
We got Samantha a second time and thought of taking her to my favorite stomping grounds.
As for writing, the property has been sold to a new owner. Come to think of it, I can’t believe I’ve been shooting at this place for the past 10 years or so. It was a great run. As the owner said, we have made the place both famous and anonymous at the same time. Hehehe. She fondly calls the place Narnia, and rightfully so. That place was where alot of my concepts came to be.

It’s been awhile since I posted something in my blog, so for 2019 I am promising to be more active in this space, though not as busy as other social media channels.

Model Portfolio: Anthea
First time I took the EOS R for a spin. It was a barely a week when I got this cam, and much my chagrin, I felt like a newbie all over again. I was so used to working with a DSLR that I had formed habit around the physicality of the camera. Over the past few years, Canon was pretty consistent with their form factor so no matter how I changed bodies, it was easy to use.
The EOS R being mirrorless, had its own set of functions and behavior that incrementally took me by surprise. Like getting used to seeing the image live through the view finder because there was a mirror that flips back after you take a shot. With the R, there was a delay before you get to see the image. It never really occurred to me that the EVF is technically another screen, so previewing through the view finder was like waiting tor the same preview to appear on the back screen. How #titohits of me. Hahaha. I guess I just got used to holding a DSLR for so long.
Also, you have to be aware of the nuances of the sensor. The R is relatively warmer compared to the Mark 4 and Ds. I had to dial down the color temperature to somewhere at 5200K in the custom white balance as compared to 5400 with the rest.
Well, you can see the rest of the review here. Good thing I had Anthea (one of my classic go-to models) to work with and was game enough to be guinea pig for this shoot.

Model Portfolio: Courtney (Bikini Team TV Asian Tour 2017) 2
As promised, more Courtney Newman from our Asian Tour 2017 shoot. One of my favorite sets we did for FHM. The back of Stilts Beach Resort is this dirt road leading to the last cottage. There were hardly any people there so it was the best time to pull off a shoot without any disturbances. The bikinis perfectly matched the backgrounds as well.
