Sigh Styles Concept: Goth Dolls

I had a collaboration shoot with a make-up artist-in-the-making and her 16-year old cousin who wants to venture into modelling.

I have always desired to "discover" talents and skills and serve as a powerful tool to the growth and enhancement of these talents. Sigh Styles' new advocacy, is, to discover, develop and share the talents / skills of wonderful people who have overwhelming passion with fashion, like mine, from modelling, to fashion styling, fashion design and  the art of hair styling and make-up.

Meet Hazel, the make-up artist and also the model and her cousin, Kenia.


For this shoot, the concept was about GOTH DOLLS
And since it is summer, I added pops of neon for a fun, warm touch of the season.

Model: Hazel

Model: Kenia
"Not bad for a first try" - according to Kenia, and I so agree!

More of pictures of the photo shoot HERE.

I admit that my outputs from this shoot are not quite at there best as the photo shoot happened late in the afternoon when Mr. Sun was beginning to hide from us. Quick f.y.i: Hazel and Kenia are among the fresh faces captured using my new prime lens.  I really have fun working with them. The following shoot with these ladies was totally dark, and it was way more challenging than this.  Watch out for it.

Keep coming back to see my future concept shoots.

Pink Philosophy: How to Be Subtle Yet Obvious in Ballet Slippers and There's More To It Than Just Being Skin-Deep Kawaii

Wait... I am not a ballerina!  
So, what's the fuss with ballet slippers in my title? I'm not going to talk about "that" footwear in this post.  The world of fashion has baptized new names to the colors of the rainbow by associating it with things we are familiar with, like for example: yellow to Butterscotch, gray to Pebble and yes, pink to Ballet Slippers.
My vacation to the Philippines last August, has given me the chance to reunite with my wardrobe, which I missed seriously, play dress-up and be all out in my favorite Ballet Slippers = Pink!  
Here's my take on one of A/W 2017 colors: Ballet Slippers, subtly monochromatic yet still obviously color-coordinated in pink, right?

But honestly, there's more to the color pink than just being on trend now and leaving an image of skin-deep bubbliness and irresistibly kawaii.

My Pink Philosophy:

Pink has always been a color identified to Barbie and for anything girly and youthful.  Despite being 20 years junior to the ac…

A Dozen Unfiltered Reasons Why Bangkok,Thailand Is Always My Place To Be

People nowadays have abundant, diverse resources that traveling outside one's home country has been a typical option for holidays or even for a long-weekend vacation.  And if you are from the Philippines, the accessible places and, by fact, the more affordable options would be those destinations nearby such as Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand.


Yes, Thailand! My second favorite country, of course, next to the Philippines.  The country has a massive land area. But with the four times that I have been there, most of my adventures were spent only in Bangkok. In spite of it, I know that there are still numerous places to explore in the city of Big Mango.
I have overflowing stories to share about my trips to Bangkok, with brimming enthusiasm.  I have had several detailed blog posts about my trips since 2011, 2013 and 2014.  Although this post and the pictures you will be seeing are #throwback shots, I hope to still provide you with an overview of what the city has to offer and be able to…
