When the Consul General of Indonesia in Davao City, Berlian Napitupulu, invited me to do a basic photography workshop for his office staff, I agreed right away. Indonesia has a soft spot in my heart for many reasons.
Thanks to a successful workshop last April 26, there is another one for Robinsons’ on May 24, 2013. Updates will be posted soon!
(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.
