Shoot for Hope Photo Workshop for a Cause

Shoot for Hope Photo Workshop for a Cause Shoot for Hope was organized in a matter of days,  just less than 2 weeks.  When Typhoon Sendong ravaged areas in Cagayan de Oro and Iligan, Rhonson and I immediately gathered our very good friends to come up with a fundraising event. In June 0f 2011, Rhonson and I were victims of a flashflood which prompted us to move out and relocate.  Help came from our good friends, and one with the most impact was the workshop that our kumpare Manny Librodo organized along with his good friends Bobby Wong and Aly Reyes.  Together with buddies and other top photographers who waived their professional fees in support of our situation, the workshop was able to raise funds which they sent to us (or rather, Rhonson flew to Manila to humbly accept it).  People we didn’t know greeted us on Facebook and told us they joined the workshop to help us.  It has warmed our hearts so much and helped us in our efforts to try to get …

Shoot for Hope

Last June, Rhonson Ng and I were flash flood victims but we managed to escape after losing our home and things. Good friends came to support us materially, spiritually and emotionally. Renowned photographer Manny Librodo, together with good friends Bobby Wong Jr. and Aly Reyes pooled their support group and tapped great photographers who unselfishly offered their time and expertise in a one day workshop in Manila which helped us tremendously in getting us back on our feet back again. Inspired by this concept, Rhon and I decided it was time to pay it forward. This time around, we asked our photographer buddies in Davao to do this event for us, and they all agreed. Please help us help the typhoon victims as soon as possible. Spread the word. Thank you and Merry Christmas.
