Gadgets Magazine July Photoshoot.

 It has been quite awhile since my last post and tons of awesome things happened during that time so I owe you guys a lot. Now, I will start it off by sharing to you guys that I have been working at Gadgets Magazine which is a local tech and lifestyle magazine as their graphic artist for two months now and I must say that I am having a great time working there since it was always one of my dreams to work in a magazine as a photographer, graphic designer and sometimes a writer, which is not going to happen anytime soon since I really have to work on my writing skills (right now I am not confident on how I used and placed those commas) but still I am living out one of my dreams. 

During the course of my laziness to update this blog, the July issue of Gadgets came out and it is my great pleasure to tell you that it is the first issue that I have worked on and in a couple of days (or probably within a week) the August issue which is the anniversary issue of Gadgets is going to hit the bookstores and newsstands (I can't wait since I spent 4 straight days of going home really late). While waiting for the August issue to come out, let me share to you guys the behind the scenes of the July issue photo shoot at Secret Fresh in Ronac Art Center with the beautiful Jessy Mendiola as our cover girl, Sir Paul Ticzon the awesome photographer (I must say that I am a big fan of his works and seeing him work in the flesh is one experience that will stay etched in my memory) and Ms. Jo Ticzon the wonderful hair and make-up artist. The shoot was really awesome even though I was only there during the latter part of the shoot because I was in a meeting in Makati but judging from the outcome of the photos in the magazine it was fantastic and I couldn't wait till the next photo shoot with Sir Paul since I am eager to see his workflow. 

So I will stop typing now because I am generally tired from staring at the screen for hours and get some sleep but I will leave you some photos during the shoot. :)

Please do not try to remove the watermark because it is painstaking, time consuming and very frustrating since I have only uploaded really small versions of these images. tee-hee.
