Japan

1996 was the last time I visited Japan and back then I didn’t care about photography, traveling, or even Japanese food. At that time I went along with my parents to visit family members we had living in Tokyo. Fast forward to 2013… This time around things were definitely going to be different. I made sure to appreciate every little thing and adsorb as much of the culture as I could. Sensory overload would be a good way to describe my experience, I even slept through a 7.1 earthquake.

I’d like to thank my cousins Lester & Jaydee for taking the time to be my guides, you can check out Lester’s portfolio here:

The Philippines

It’s been 6 years since my last visit to the Philippines, and so much has changed since then. This time around my journey took me to the beautiful island of Palawan all the way to the Ilocos Norte region, the northern tip of Luzon. I was excited to experience the rich culture and life of the Philippines, here are photos documenting my travels.






































































Fuji x100 + VSCO Film + Bagle Hound

Here are some photos of my Bagle Hound out and about. Photos were taken with a Fuji x100 and processed with VSCO Film 03. I really love how close VSCO gets to getting that “film look” without having to shoot film. Of course nothing can beat shooting film itself, but with the cost of buying film and development adding up, VSCO is a nice alternative. (http://vsco.co/)

VanCity

Vancouver! What can I say? Only my second time here and I’m really starting to love this city. I feel as if this city is the best of San Francisco combined with the visual beauties of Lake Tahoe. Here are a few snaps…
