Looking Back: The Sort of Photos I Used to Take

Before I had the encouragement and inspiration from my photographer friends/photography idols over at Rangefinder Filipinas, I shot photos based on an existing, underdeveloped aesthetic. These were taken during a work stint in China, around 2005-2006.

One of the last shots of Shanghai, at the Pudong Airport.

I’m not saying my photographic sense has reached maturity already, but nowadays, before I do put my camera to my face, I would usually know what to do already.


And here’s a photo of a Beijing skinhead band I’d like to re-edit. The highlights are just too much, but I’d like to think its a worthy candidate to include in that super awesome gig photography portfolio I’d find myself working on someday.
