Hi ladies! I want to spread the word that one of my favorite photographers in the Metro will be conducting an open shoot.
As I previously said in my other post, it doesn't hurt to have a glamorous photo to jazz up your Facebook page, to experience what it's actually like to be a model or just have a photo taken for fun!
The best part is you get to keep the pictures and show it to your friends and relatives. Plus, photos from open shoots can be used to build up your portfolio incase you're into modelling.

Who is Ash Castro and what's so special about him?

"Ash Castro's work is characterized by good color combination that makes his subjects more moving and alive even in stills.. The fashion-sensitive artist obviously deals with models and fashion designers, ensuring the atmosphere of good taste in clothes and chic posing during shoots. As the one who captures the images, he determines the best angles in freezing models and everything beautiful created by the good mix of colorful outfits, pretty make-ups, and stylish posing."
- YUGEL LOSORATA, MANILA BULLETIN, Lifesytle/Picture Perfect Section,Dec 09 2008 ISSUE

My take - Ash is just one of those persons who has an eye for beauty. It's so easy to work with him and he will surely make you feel comfortable. He'll even teach you how to pose. LOL! He's a perfectionist but he's down to earth and friendly.
I mean I have a photo taken by him, and I was smiling. O.o That usually doesn't happen with me. LOL! I tend to be really stiff when I get my photos taken because I am not photogenic. :p
He's also very professional. You probably have noticed by now that I love him, and yes, I'd have to agree because he's such a great person.

Please feel free to check out more photos by Ash HERE.
