Did you go to school to study photography? 
I never had a chance to involve myself into to any photography courses or any workshop. Youtube, Photography Books and some Photographer Mentors (Sir Jovic Ferrer (Bird), Sir Ric Samanion (Landscape) taught me some basics and important techniques.

How long have you been a photographer? 
I started in photography in 2012.

What or who got you started in photography?
Sir Jovic Ferrer , it started when he made me involved into his fashion about bird photography. He made me first as his spotter and guide. Then one of our sortie, out of curiosity I tried his camera to take some pictures of our feather friend. Then I started to love the excitement and challenges when taking picture of birds.

How would you describe your style (photography)?
I don’t really have style followed in taking pictures; it depends on the subject, place, time and scenario.

The place you love the most in SOX and Why?
Lake Sebu (Sitio Kanko) and T’boli (Lake Holon) Why? Simply, because of this two reasons, BIRDS and Scenic views.

What lighting equipment do you take on a shoot? 
Flash and flashlight

Can you describe how and when you use flash, video light, reflectors and natural light during a shoot? 
I used flash if my camera ISO can’t handle anymore the light needed in the scene. 

How important is Photoshop in your final images?
For me PS is Very important especially for basic photo adjustment like brightness, contrast, sharpness, for cropping and placement. I used also Adobe Photoshop for advance photo manipulation.

How do you feel about cropping an image?
Image cropping tool is a very important option for a photographer especially when you are dealing with photo composition.

The photo of Mother Philippine Eagle and her 2 months Eaglet on the nest. We travelled 8 hours to Cinchona, Bukidnon just too captured photos of very rare Philippine Eagle in the wild. It is one of the most memorable 10 seconds of my life. After waiting for almost 2 hours when from nowhere the Mother eagle glide and perched into the nest to visit her eaglet in flew away immediately after 10 seconds. Lucky I was able to made 1 frame despite of the trembling of my hands because of too much excitement.
