The Neil Oshima show

This is a super late post but as I've said before I have a lot of backlogs and this is one of them. Haha. Anyway, 2 weeks ago I got invited by Jason Quibilan (abscbn film/tv director/photographer) to style for a photography workshop by the world renowned and very talented--the great Neil Oshima. He's a very popular photographer back in the 70's-80's. He got me at "I photographed for National Geographic", I died. Lol. Anyway, you can read more about his life and works HERE. :)

It was a last minute project, as in I was told 2 days before the shoot. The only instruction they gave was that the styling should be very textured. So I rushed to Myth and Gaupo shoes (our favorites stores) to pullout. I also called Jear if he wants to join me and he imemdiately said yes after I told him that we'll be styling Angel Aquino. Hehe. So here's how it went...

quick breakfast & my weird im-still-sleepy-what-am-i-doing-here morning face.

  2. i love the blue feather-ish shrug like thing! :)

  3. OMG!!!! :) Angel Aquino, she's sooo Vera!
