From glamour to fashion photography, his expertise is evident in capturing beautifully lit faces in various poses subjected to a wide range of situations. He is currently a member of the prestigious Alpha Camera Club of the Philippines and his work has gained some recognition among his peers.
His photography style is to capture deep human emotions in a photo. His works immediately draw you in with the superb lighting. The absolute sincerity and intense soul lifting quality of his photographs come naturally to him and can, undoubtedly, be quite touching and terribly moving for the viewer.
