My interest in photography started in 2000 when I received my first film camera, a Canon EOS88. After taking basic and advanced workshops under Ibarra Deri and the late Manny Ang, I was able to take several terrific shots of Sagada, Boracay, Cebu (Sinulog), Davao (Kadayawan) and Baguio (Panagbenga).
Resisting the shift into digital, I maintained a long-standing relationship with film and moved on to Canon EOS30. I started my international travel photography and captured great photos Bangkok, Malaysia (Formula One Racing) and Cambodia (the Angkor Wat). (http://www.flickr.com/photos/stanong/co … 220393262/
My love for taking thousands of travel photographs and graphic design
background finally resulted in my shift to the digital world and in 2004, I purchased my first Digital Rebel XT. With this new equipment, I took more workshops in Philippine Center for Creative Imaging (PCCI) focusing on digital photography, namely, Food Photography by Mark Floro; Wedding Photography by Patrick Uy; Fine Art Nudes, Single Light and Glamour Photography by Dominique James and Fashion Photography by Dominique James and Raymond Isaac.
I currently have one Canon 40D, two Canon 350Ds, a Canon G5 and a Powershot camera for his underwater photos and uses various Canon and Sigma lenses. Aside from experimenting and practicing with my equipment, I continue to hone my craft by looking out for and attending workshops in digital photography and lighting.

I enjoy traveling, meeting new friends and working with individuals who share the same passion for nature, beauty and photography as I do.
