Little bit about me.

After trying out my hands on wedding, portraiture and still life, it was capturing landscapes that resonated with me. I'm not in pursuit of photographing grand vistas, but instead, I seek places with elements that creates shapes and form within my camera's frame or compliment its negative space.  

As I sketched less and less and have gone away from practising Graphic design completely. Photography is now the only medium that keeps my creative mind ticking. But how I see, compose and create photographs are heavily influenced by my experiences from drawing and design.

I was born 1977, Manila, Philippines. I grew up and have lived in Melbourne, Australia for most of my life. I continue to reside here with my wife and two kids.

Graduated 1999, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia - Bachelor of Design (Graphic Design).

A little bit about the site.

In the 'Current' page you'll find a mixture of the latest published images that I have uploaded to the site. 

The 'Galleries' section consist of my black and white work. The photographs in this section revolves around the shorelines of Victoria, the state I live in Australia. The 'Quiet Shores' is an ongoing project that I had started back in 2011 and will continue to pursue with other projects like 'Wonderings' and 'After Dark' to increase the body of work in my folio.

'News' is for all the latest info related to this site and to my work.

The 'Contact' page has suggestions of ways at getting in touch with .
