The art and techniques of photography led me to food photography and food styling. This particular niche has also led me to prop styling and most of the props I collected were inspired by my ranch lifestyle back in the Philippines. Being brought up in a farm environment, I just could not resist to aim my lens onto food, especially organic food. My former way of living defined my photographic voice which present food in a rustic, yet refreshing and appetizing angle. Appreciating food is the central ingredient to producing a believable and enjoyable food . My understanding of seeing and manipulating light helped developed a distinct flair that complements my unique photographic voice.
