Colorful photography lessons from the Philippines

Our own Luis Sinco has been working on the first South Pacific Photo Workshop in the Philippines, set in Dumaguete City, the capital of Negros Oriental Province.

Alongside Magnum photographer Eli Reed and Armando Arorizo, owner of the Los Angeles’ Perfect Exposure Gallery, Sinco has been guiding an internationally diverse set of students through the basics of photography throughout the bustling city streets and vibrant wilderness.

Participants in the first South Pacific Photo Workshop include, from left: Mark Bermas, Juliet Gim, Dennis Welter, Kenan Tuada, Hersley-Ven Casero, Roman Hampl, Jeff “Ruby” Rubenstein, Luis Sinco, Armando Arorizo, Sophia Sinco, Lisa Blumenfeld, Eli Reed and Paul Benzi Sebastian Florendo. Not pictured: Phil Prins and Mark Besario.

My friend has a bit of a crab mentality going on. Haven’t had seafood in the longest time. Good thing the one near our village is a good seafood, shell serving, awesomely designed restaurant called the Holy Crab. #HolyCrabMentality

Have a great weekend! 💋☀❤ (at San Vicente Ferrer Shrine San Vicente Gumaca Quezon Philppines)
