Québec City, Québec (Canada) 2016

October 13, 2016

I was really fine. I finally got my full-frame system down: Canon 6D + Sigma Art lenses. I felt complete. And then my good friend, Ryan James Savin, had taken me on a crazy detour! He asks, “Have you ever tried the Fuji line?”. Hogwash, I initially thought. How could that crop-sensor mirrorless camera compare to […]

Philippines 2012

April 2, 2012

As you saw in the last post, I had gone to the Philippines on assignment to capture the wonderful reunion of cousins from my grandmother’s side from my father’s side. Having gone that far across the globe to only spend seven days and fly back is almost unheard of. Usually, a three week stay is […]

Philippines 2012: Day 1

April 2, 2012

I’m going to take you through my journey starting right from the airport. What’s a trip without capturing what you did during your stop-overs anticipating a 12.5hr ride to your next connecting flight?! And at least stealing a few snappies at the gate passed the time quickly. Toronto Pearson Airport: Terminal 1 is one of […]

Philippines 2012: Day 2

April 2, 2012

Arrived, safe and sound! Familiar landscapes,… familiar smells,… familiar food!!! Yum! It’s always customary for the travellers to be greeted with a nice home cooked meal and surely that’s what my Dad and I came to when we arrived at my aunt’s house after a two-hour commute from the airport. The meal was so good […]

Philippines 2012: Day 4

April 2, 2012

So obviously, Day 3 was the post about the reunion, even though it’s not titled in sequence with these ones. Hehe! The reunion was a blast and I was truly privileged to have been asked to fly all the way from Toronto to capture this reunion. And now, this is Day 4. I woke up […]

Philippines 2012: Day 5

April 2, 2012

When your trip is short, you certainly need to wake up early to get the most out of the day, right? Ask me if I still had any energy by 8:00pm after all the daily activities…ask me if the food was still good! There’s your answer…haha! Playing golf in Philippines is certainly different than I’ve […]

Philippines 2012: Day 6

April 2, 2012

Well, this is the last day and we’re off to see an aunt who had invited us over for lunch and dinner. Getting there was quite a trek as the traffic was nuts! Let’s say there are three lanes going in the same direction, here in North America. That would easily be five (if not […]

Manese Grand Reunion 2012

March 9, 2012

mddphotography takes its first overseas assignment in the Philippines! Last summer, my father reunited with his first cousins after 40 years (can you believe that?!), as these relatives decided to visit Toronto. This meeting was just the tip of the iceberg. One of these cousins, Cora, had been starting a family tree, which apparently was […]
