During ‘not so busy’ days in the studio I would setup lamps on spots where people would sit and just shoot when they do. It’s amazing how each facial expression comes out exactly how I see it outside the studio, not carrying a camera, just having a normal conversation. 

This series is of my good friend Stef. She comes to the studio to do some of her work and I would just take snaps with whatever camera is available. Like most, I guess, she gets conscious and asks what the hell I’m doing. At this point, not wanting any unnatural expression, I just put away my camera. 

These are some of the photos in which I remember exactly how she looks like in those no-camera-normal-conversation-moments. 


50 Shades of Rose

50 Shades of Rose


She’s an illustrator, graphics designer, photographer, dancer, model, skydiver, surfer, tattoo enthusiast, a seasonal singer, and ‘the’ photoshop guru.

I’ve known Rose since 2011, and quite frankly, it’s hard to keep up with what she’s into. Every day, there’s always something new. In rare moments, however, when she’s calm and evidently contemplating on her next adventure, I grab whatever camera I can find and just start shooting. Early on, in one of these rare moments, I realised one thing to be true, cliche as it may sound, when a person is immersed in positive thoughts, that elusive “x-factor” just oozes out, without breaking a sweat. This is a small collection of what I call those “rare looks” including some shots wherein I was asking her to do a certain pose but totally ignores me and just does her own thing. It just turns out WOW… Thank you Rose!
