Larawan Photography: It's J.C. & The AnitoKid!

Christening Photographs Graphic
Photography: Drawing with light. A passion.

Both of us, Jason Calubaquib, aka J.C., and Leslie Mapugay, aka The AnitoKid, were very much surprised when we learned that we acquired (separately) our respective gears in December 2008 – and on the same day! Coincidence? Maybe. Destiny? Definitely!

Nothing was planned – it just happened! We had different goals for acquiring our equipment, i.e., J.C. wanted to learn how to draw with light, while The AnitoKid wanted to upgrade his equipment. And that was that.

Fast-forward two months – February 2009. We, together with our best friend Lito de Castro, decided to go to Baguio City, the Summer Capital of the Philippines. ‘Twas two days of fun filled with non-stop shoots at the Panagbenga Festival! And believe you me, we took pictures of everything for like 16-18 hours/day! After two weeks, we decided to go back again to the City of Pines for two more days! Lo! And behold! Everything – logic and reason - unfolded before us! Jason found a new love, while The AnitoKid rediscovered his (he was into film photography in high school).

In the ensuing months, we turned our respective loves into one great passion – LARAWAN PHOTOGRAPHY! And a successful one at that! It is with great pride and joy to inform friends and all that in just a few months, Larawan Photography has carved a name for itself in competitions and club contests! Moreover, it has made some big strides in the business side of things. How big? Consider these: Larawan Photography has realized a number of satisfied clients and has been the word of mouth in various events, e.g., weddings, debuts, birthdays, and sports entertainment! But wait! There’s more! Did you know that Larawan Photography is now the Official Photographer of Hard Rock CafĂ©, Makati City, Air Force One, DMC Philippines, and the Makati Pool Players Association? Yes, we are! And we kid you not!

And why the blog? We sincerely believe that the blog is the perfect way for Larawan Photography to share with everyone some of our unforgettable shoots! After all, we don’t just take pictures. We preserve memories. And we tell the story. No more. No less.

Without further ado, here is a YouTube video - a compilation of some of the shots we took during our first paid gig – the Christening of Sasha Castro Dy – the granddaughter of former Isabela Governor Faustino Dy, Jr. The pictures were taken on May 24, 2009, at the Sanctuario de San Antonio in Forbes Park, Makati City. Hope you enjoy the pics as much as we did shooting 'em!

Till the next shoot, everyone! All our love!
J.C. & The AnitoKid
