At long last the hardcore band I’ve been waiting see all my life has arrived. Oh yes they arrived with force, New York Hardcore style!!! We’re talking about the the band that started it all, whether it’s hardcore punk, oi punk or crossover they’ve done it all.
It was the 10th of June 5:30am in the morning the mighty Sun is about to rise, me and my crew were scheduled to shoot the drone shot and some establishing shots of the church (Presentation of the Child Jesus) at BF Holmes. As soon at we set-up the gear the sky doesn’t seem to agree with us, then as we shot the first few minutes of video it started to rain. I think to myself that this will be a very interesting wedding day. Continue reading
The Metalcore scene is not possible without the founding father – Earth Crisis. I’m not fond of labeling music genres but basically it’s hardcore but more heavy and metal, if it makes any sense. This band is one of my inspiration when I was in college (until now), they’re discography is still on my iTunes music list. The Victory Records Era is one of the exciting years in the hardcore and punk scene. With likes of Snapcase and Strife they took the hardcore scene by storm. It also started the “Straight Edge” vegan movement as a lifestyle and later on as a hardcore sub-genre with lyrics emphasizing on advocating animal rights and anti-global warming sentiments. As time goes by the Metalcore style music has change to the more melodic sound that we here today. If you really want to here Metalcore on its purest form pick-up the album Firestorm and listen to Earth Crisis now!!! Continue reading

This photography workshop was the 222nd of Manuel “Manny” Librodo. Imagine how many people he had inspired throughout the years. The press releases and testimonials about him proves that he’s not just an awesome photographer but a people person as well. A cool guy if you know him and a true mentor, knowing that he’s a full-time teacher (in an international school in Bangkok) makes his workshop more upbeat and efficient – the reason why people are coming back for more. The experience they get from each and every workshop is very different from one another. For the patrons it’s not just about learning photography but a camaraderie that leads to a good relationship with Manny and the crew. Definitely there will be more workshops to come and I’ve heard that a book will be publish soon, better watch out for that. This workshop was organized by the hard working Team of Walls and Frames in cooperation with MOE.
I had the chance to shoot some photos and videos of my father-in-law’s 58th birthday celebration last January. Actually it was a double celebration of his birthday and their (w/ mother-in-law) wedding anniversary. It was a late celebration ’cause we only can visit them a week later the actual date. It was a good day for all of us my parents and my wife’s (Jenny) parents have a time to bond before my in-laws go back to Italy. One big happy extended family. Hope you like the photos and video, Kae sure did enjoy posing in front of the camera.
Whenever I go back to my hometown I always forget to take a single photo of where I grew up. I always finish a photo project or a video project but regretfully forget to snap a photo of the greatest thing in my childhood. This place always gives me a sense of solace. I don’t feel rushed and stressed out when I’m there. I can definitely kick back relax and enjoy the view or the moment. Maybe I can only say it because I’m on vacation but I really feel that there’s something more to it than a feeling of nostalgia. Now that I’m a Dad myself I’m glad to have introduce to my daughter Kirsten Jae the place where I played, got dirty, broke a bone, bitten by a dog, climbed, fell and got scolded. Continue reading
