As part of our mission to of uplifting the passion…. Even with the hectic schedule, me and wife, Jeng, joined SPPP’s 8th mentor series titled: “Baluarte Ti Vigan“. And being an active member of the club, I obliged myself to help out.
Jeng and I arrived with the advance team (a day before the workshop). Jeng, by the way, is also one of the official make-up artist of the club.
I was surpised as one of our mentors Miss Leah Taas and “Club Senator” Orly Mercado asked me to share my works with the participants. I came unprepared so I had to download most of my works online… and had to do an instant AVP. Google’s Picasa did the trick!…You should try it sometime… Thank God the Baluarte had Wi-Fi although it was frustratingly slow!
During the course of the Workshop I was quite excited to show my work… but darn… someone accidentally pulled the projector’s plug!!! (Ooopsss! It was actually me)… Hehe! So here it is again! 🙂

The workshop is a gathering of all sorts of Photographers, be it a die hard hobbyist, Glamour and Fashion photohgrapher, Food Photographer, Wedding Photographer… everyone was welcomed to join.
It was unfortunate that I only had a short stay with the group as Jeng and I needed to rush to Laoag airport and prepare for Daniel and Angels wacky wedding!
Here are some images form the workshop!
