About Me

(Sorry, my website is under maintenance at the moment but feel free some of my photos here).

** The Past **
I was always fascinated by two things when I was a kid: photography and the female beauty.  I got my first taste of using SLR (and black and white film) back in secondary school, as an exchange student to Japan.  My mentor taught me the basics: camera, developing B/W film, and even portraiture.  The most important lesson he taught me, which is something that I believe up to this very day, is that "everyone has a photogenic angle".

I wanted to pursue my passion for photography back then, but unfortunately the economics of it wasn't viable at that time.  I just made sure that the flames of that passion did not burn out. 

More than a decade later, I picked up where I left off when I moved to Singapore.  I tried other genres to get the ball rolling again.  I even volunteered with Singapore Red Cross (and at that time, I was the only Filipino photographer on their roster).

Then I met two other mentors, who have great influence on my style, and they both drew me back to my first love:  the female beauty.  I got a chance to work with professional and amateur models from different countries and cultures:  Brazilians, Russians, Canadians, Americans, British, Czechs, Australians, Chinese, Thais, Indonesians and Malays.

** The Present **
I am currently based in Singapore. 

So, to all the female models out there: Let's shoot!

Interested models (including first-timers) can send me a message here, or email me at john [at] focaljam [dot] com.

** The Future **
Can't really say where this will take me.  Just like with one other passion that I have:  it's best to just feel it and not think about it.  The fun and pleasure is in experiencing it. 

As one Jedi master said, "Don't think. Feel."
