My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

Philippines | Wednesday, 9 January 2013 | 5 photos


As a high school student I would always borrow my Dads SLR camera. I knew I had the passion for photography. I would just shoot anything, from landscapes to people. Whenever there was an occasion in the neighborhood I would be there just to photograph the event in the most candid situations. I finally had my first SLR in college, tried to learn how to effectively use it and attended free photography workshops in school and friends. However, there came to a point that I couldnt sustain my hobby due to the high rising cost of film and processing. It was only 6 years ago that I got my first point and shoot camera. My desire and passion on photography was rekindled. I had this burning desire to shoot intriguing and interesting places. I see photography as an access to capture the beauty of the places I go too and learn to more about the people and their culture. Travelling is one of the things I would love to do, whether it's a family vacation or business trips. Taking photographs on these occasions serves lasting memories triggered with love and compassion. Endless possibilities passionately creating and connecting with just about anything.
