Backstage of FHM’s Sexiest by Whimboy Echavez

The day Whimboy Echavez quit his job, he took a risk and pursued a career in photography. And it was worth it. Now, Echavez gets to celebrities, models, politicians and normal people. One of his projects was when he was hired by Philippine Star Supreme to cover the backstage of FHM’s sexiest women in the world 2012 where gorgeous and hot women were busy preparing and coming in and out of the dressing rooms. There were some shots that showed half naked girls but unfortunately Echavez did not post it because he can’t show any nudity in his site.

Echavez also shoot weddings and engagement sessions. According to him, “It’s an awesome feeling to be able to tell stories through my photographs. I have the best job in the world.”

Food Photography by Louie Aguinaldo

Food Photography by Louie Aguinaldo

Food Photography by Louie Aguinaldo

Everybody loves food. Who doesn’t? Especially if it comes first with tempting, tasty pictures in the menu.

Food photography plays an important part in every food business especially in restaurants because it creates a desire for any delicacy or restaurant dish. These photos need to be effective to catch the attention of the people’s eyes so photographer Louie Aguinaldo carefully used lighting and camera angles to bring out the color and texture of the food that one can almost taste it just by looking at it.

Filipino photographer Aguinaldo began by shooting portfolios for models in his own modeling agency back in 1991. When he was given a big break in 1995 by photographing artists, his career in photography expanded and he began to venture in advertising, food & beverages, concerts and other types of photography.

Children by Loretta Lux

Children by Loretta Lux

Children by Loretta Lux

Loretta Lux is know for her portraits of young children, where most of them are her friends’ kids. These portraits are digitally altered to resemble the aristocratic formality of Old Master paintings.

Lux first studied painting at the Academy of Visual Arts in Munich before she pursued photography in 1999. Influenced by old-age painters, she dresses the children in vintage clothing and props. Her surreal portraits became metaphors for childhood innocence.

Her earliest works include set against icy blue skies – Troll (2000), Lois (2000), and Isabella (2001). When she moved to Ireland, she began to shoot pairs of children rather than solitary ones.

Lux’s work has been exhibited in many museums like Getty Museum in Los Angeles, CA, the National Museum of Art in Osaka, Japan, and the Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne, Switzerland.

In Katrina’s Wake by Chris Jordan

In Katrina's Wake by Chris Jordan

In Katrina’s Wake by Chris Jordan

In Katrina’s Wake – A series of photos depicting the aftermath of the hurricane Katrina all over America. This photo project was created by American photographic artist Chris Jordan whose main concerns are about the consumerism of today’s society.

Almost 300,000 Americans lost their properties in this disaster. Classrooms, houses broken, clothes and books scattered and debris everywhere. What is bothering in Jordan’s mind is whether we are somewhat responsible for this catastrophe since there were evidences that hurricane Katrina was not an entirely natural disaster like earthquake. He said, ‘From that perspective, my hope is that these images might encourage some reflection on the part that we each play, and the loss that we all suffer, when a preventable catastrophe of this magnitude happens to the people of our own country. Katrina has illuminated our interconnectedness, and it makes our personal accountability as members of a conscious society ever more difficult to deny.’

He wants us to act, not just react. To do something for them how small it might be.

I was young, I was happy in this world and someone wanted me well enough to make me a photograph. ” – One Hour Photo
