My Scholarship entry: A place I have visited

The Land of the Howling Wind

Philippines | Thursday, 4 July 2013 | 5 photos

My interest in photography started when I was in college after seeing Robert Capa’s photographs. It started as a hobby but when I stumbled upon Alex Baluyut’s “Kasama” it made me realize what photography can really do and since then photography became my passion. But since I don’t have a camera back then, I borrowed or use my cellphone camera instead. In 2012, after having an entry-level dslr, I shoot continuously and seriously.

I consider photography as art and I have a deep appreciation of it. I have a great interest in shooting street photography and now I am also shooting some personal documentaries. I find it also interesting to do conceptual documentaries which I haven’t done yet.

I am still developing my personal vision and scholarship such as this would further help me develop and explore my photography. If given a chance, I would really love to be part of this travel photography scholarship.

Catanduanes is a hidden gem about 500km south of the capital of the Philippines, Manila. Surfers from all over the world come to this little island to experience the Puraran beach known to be a surfer’s haven in Bicol region. Among the islands in the Philippines, Catanduanes is considered path of typhoons passing along the country. It experiences at least 200 days of rain a year. Last February I had the chance to visit Catanduanes again. I am always humbled by the way of living in the island. Fishing is the primary source of living in the island. During my short visit, I was able to photograph the people and the raw beauty of Catanduanes.
