periventricular asked: Hi Sir! Magtatanong lang, you also use film cameras right? Saan po kaya ako pwede makabili ng films na parang whole sale, medyo nahihirapan kasi akong maghanap, kung may idea lang po kayo. Salamat! :)
Yes I do use film cameras :)
If you want to buy in bulk, best option is through the internet :) Or best to call Fuji YKL Philippines if you are planning to buy 50-100 or more rolls :) If not, try going to Fuji Megamall, I recently got FujiColor 200 36exp. 10pcs. there :)
Sorry for the late reply :)>
I am already following your main advice: I’m happy now.
I’ll see you when I see you.
Have a great life and have a safe trip!

Philippines Typhoon Haiyan slammed into six central islands Friday, decimating buildings and homes. One of the most powerful typhoons ever recorded, Haiyan (Yolanda in the Philippines) has caused more than 1,000 fatalities, the Philippines Red Cross is estimating.
Hello everyone who follows my little clump of web space. I rarely do this but please allow me this once.
The central region of the country (Visayas) has been hit with back to back calamities from a magnitude 7 earthquake and one of the worst recorded storms in the history of man.
As much as the Filipino is known for it’s resilience and ability to adapt to any situation, this calamity is just too much as can be seen in the various news reports, photographs, and video footage.
The link above is a great way for those who can extend financial help to the victims, survivors, and anyone who needs them.
All else, please continue to pray for everyone, have good thoughts and actions on the situation, and spread the word on how to extend help to our country.
Thank you in advance for your kindness :)

Anonymous asked: Hi ! nice site, I was wondering what was your camera that you are using. Thank you ! From Montreal, Alex
I use a variety of cameras especially for film, there is the Konica Big Mini F, Leica M4-P, Minolta X700 and others.
I am waiting for an e-mail from my boss about his comments on draft I made for work. Naturally, I scoured the internet for photography to pass the time. I encountered this profile done on Hin Chua by Adam Chidell (A must read I tell you since Chua’s work is phenomenal) which started with a simple question. It asks “Sex or Photography: Which one you would give up first?”
Without any thought or hesitation, I said to myself “Photography. I’ll drop photography in a heartbeat.” As usual, a voice in my head responded with a “Really dude? Are you serious?” Photography has been an integral part of my life in how I dealt with things. Ever since my first girlfriend dumped me, I started clicking to deal with things. Lost in thought, click. Chasing cats, click. Tired from school, click. Tired from work, click. Feeling sad, click. It is how I put my life out there and the thing I know I can do in a decent manner.
Although nowadays I think that clicking is becoming a constant interruption in my life. Each photograph occupies a space in my head like a bloated hard drive full of photos that did not make the final edit. My obsession with preservation comes at the expense of brain capacity being used for something that would most likely not yield anything of lasting value but I still do it anyway.
Sex on the other hand, for me at least, is something cerebral. People commonly find the physical act is what’s pleasurable with it but I find that giving your body to another person with the other doing the same will give you a deep connection and understanding you will get from nowhere else. It stems from the fact that your every fiber is revealed and accepted with all the flaws that comes with it. Your self is surrendered in the arms of that person. The act does not have the same instant gratification of a made photograph but the entire evening spent when you can hear the heartbeat of the person so close to you is unbeatable. That is why the term orgasmic is as such.
I guess I approach sex with the same sentimentality as I have with photography. As much as Noboyushi Araki is concerned, sex and photography are one and the same. He points out that you put yourself, your every fiber in that photograph. You surrender yourself to the viewer of your images. Just like showing off photographs, you have something you can share to the other person. I have felt that in making my latest zine based on the comments that are coming in but the problem is the emotional taxation. You are under the scrutiny of a viewer as opposed to sex where you are accepted by your partner. I’d be happy with one person accepting who I am than 10,000 people putting my life under a microscope (although it won’t stop me from sharing my work).
Makes me curious how Jacob Aue Sobol, Araki, Nan Goldin, Patrick Tsai, Jackson Eaton, Antoine D’ Agata and photographers who have combined sex and photography felt like. I’m curious but not going to try and find out. For now photography is the love of my life. The medium giving itself to me and vice-versa. Hopefully the day doesn’t come when I have to choose one or the other. I don’t want photography and the person who I want to share my life with treat each other as mistresses. I want them to coexist in a cosmic, orgasmic, and symphonic manner. Here’s to hoping for that possibility to come soon.>
