Free counters!  

He was of one those who received the copies, and now the colleagues want some too. They sell, how do you call them, cosmetics?, salon, equipment like those giant, bowl, astronaut-ish-stuff where ladies put their head in. And also electric razors. My brother wants an electric razor, so, I might ask for a discount, since we are ‘friends’ already. Hehe. ~The portrait he’s holding

I am honestly thinking if this can be turned into a small business, just for fun and for a little extra income (which I can use to buy photography/camera related stuff). For how much though? ;)






The goldsmith. I know you can’t [clearly] see the photo he’s holding. ~Bottom right of this photoset.






Sadiq (friend) Amin, also known as ‘Bayaw’ (brother-in-law in Filipino) got his copies (and of the guys who weren’t at the store). He kept on offering softdrink, coffee and/or tea. He gave that pen as a return. (24K gold with two diamonds! Just kidding). (I have noticed that I have been shooting undersat photos lately. Anyway.) ~His portrait here. 






This guy, who actually is a Yemeni, probably has the most intense Arabic look among the people I have shot. He honestly scares me a little. The facial hair, the scarf, the eyes. It’s the features. But in reality, a very friendly person (he will even speak to you in Filipino). ~His black and white (slightly-out-of-focus) portrait here.

Tailor Swift Fazalahmed got his copy. See the photo he’s holding. Really doesn’t want to look towards the camera. ~Fazalahmed’s portrait here and some of his equipment.

The fishing equipment guy received his copies(I don’t get to ask all the names of the people I shoot, but sometimes, when I do, I just forget). He was with his friend when we shot but wasn’t around when I came back to give them their photos.  ~Portraits here and here (I gave him the untouched/uncropped prints), and his friend’s here.

Edit: (Note: self-assessment) I find the portraits now compared to ones before a bit better in terms of focusing and a little on the proper positioning of the subjects.

what you’re doing is inspiring. i really like this

Thank you, guys, for the kind words about this mini endeavor. (I tagged the posts with #give away, for those who haven’t.)






Mr Piolo Pascual and his co-stars also received their copies. I hope I can get a good discount from them in the future. Hehe. ~Mr Piolo’s portrait here.






Amek was the first to receive his copies. He fulfilled his promise to give me a screen protector for free. :) ~Portraits here.






Last 22 July, as mentioned, I was able to give time to print the portraits and also give them away. If I were to charge them, in minimum amount, how much should I tell them (hehe, ‘cause some of them asked for the price). Just to have an idea, you know.
