Portraits of Hope : a photo exhibit for kids with cancer

The Portraits of Hope photo exhibit came out of an inspiration to share portraits from our years of bonding with these kids who are unfortunately afflicted with cancer. Every time we visit we took endearing moments of the children who were only too happy to share their smiles with you.

My Mindanao: Photographs for Hope

MY MINDANAO: PHOTOGRAPHS FOR HOPE opens tomorrow, December 18, at the Sulawesi Function Room, ground floor of Marco Polo Davao, from 9am until 10 in the evening. This special one day exhibit is for a cause. In our years of experience as photojournalists we have been lucky to be traveling around to document wonderful places, people and culture, and publish them. We have collected many images that depict the beauty of our islands. We truly believe that Mindanao is blessed with people who care for its natural resources and preservation. But Nature has its own course, as well. Last year after Typhoon Sendong, through the help of friends and a workshop (“Shoot for Hope”), we were able to raise money and deliver relief goods to Cagayan de Oro and Iligan during the Christmas Season. This year we are trying to help raise awareness of the need to reach out more to remote, stricken areas hit by Pablo. We decided to donate forty (40) of our images. Some will be of Lumad portraits as well as …

Destination Mati: Travel Photography Workshop

(downloadable poster above) DESTINATION MATI: A TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP SERIES BY RHONSON NG AND JOJIE ALCANTARA (June 16-17, 2012) In photo: Dahican at Daybreak (Mati, Davao Oriental) Jojie Alcantara, May 2012 Dahican, the popular and most beautiful beach in my birthplace Mati, is an extended strip of stunning white beach lined with coconut trees, facing sparkling turquoise waters that ebb and flow wildly into the Pacific, inviting adventurous skimboarders to surf in glee. But there is more to Mati than sand and sea, and glorious island hopping. When I am in Mati, I always arrange for my early (4am) sunrise shoot, to capture early risers, and fishermen returning from their catch, while locals run to assist with the boat. Here, they are able to get free meals from the fisherman. In line with the coming PUJADA BAY FESTIVAL of Mati this June, we are announcing our travel photography workshop on June 16-17, which includes the sunrise shoot along Dahican. Limited slots only.

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 …
