On Shooting Architecture /
As an architecture graduate, shooting architecture is like being a part of my life. Specifically I like shooting classical, minimalist and contemporary architecture because of the aesthetic of it - the intricacy, the symmetry, the boldness and most especially the simplicity of it's design. Also, check my tag #CableWiresInArchitecture on Instagram that features buildings with cable wires on their façade, because here in the Philippines some of the aesthetically pleasing structure are distracted by cable wires.
On Subject Matter /
Someone or something that catches my eyes, that brings interest to me - the weird ones, the nature and the architecture around. Weird poses of humans, classical architecture and the scenic views of nature (who doesn't love nature).
