Of Passion, Courage and Photography

There are so many photographers out there: both hobbyists and  professionals. It can be a competitive world and it is quite challenging to find your place in the sun and stand out. Yet I know of people who enjoy photography just because they simply love it. They are undaunted by challenges and continue to push themselves to produce better work.

When it comes to photography, I always turn to my cousin, Bong, for help.  He teaches me how to get better photos. I do not necessarily get it right all the time but he is still happy to share new things he learned. I often pester him with photography questions and even when I thought I have learned enough,  he still has a lot of tricks up his sleeve which he generously shares with me. He takes awesome photos because he never stops learning.


 Having passion at what you are interested in is great. However,  it also takes courage to  put your work out there for the world to judge. So I salute the brave souls like my cousin, Bong,  for joining the photography competition by Getty Images.

I have a little request. Please click on the photos below. You will be directed to Getty Images. Click ‘like’ on the lower left corner.  No need to register. Please leave a comment when you have done so so I can thank you properly.




I know you would agree with me that these are great photos.  You won’t be sorry for clicking like. He is good.  And if you live in Manila or Laguna area and need a great photographer, let me know.  Photography is his hobby and he has a full-time job but who knows? He might be available to accommodate your request.

Thank you again. Let me leave you with this quote.  In life, we should never be afraid to take chances.
