Dreamcamshop | It's not just a typical rental shop


Last weekend I was surprised when my friend Elmer called me and asked me if I'm willing to do a camera review. I asked him first, what type of camera am I going to review? Then he told me to come and see it for myself. I then went over to his place and was astonished to see what is lying on the table; it was the "Big Daddy" of the Nikon family, the Nikon D4.

HIPA | Accepting Entries for 2014

I was chatting around with my photographer friend Elmer and while we were exchanging ideas, out of nowhere he asked me to check the website of HIPA. I immediately keyed-in their website and I got surprised that the website design was totally revamped and was given a complate facade-lift. To those who have seen the website before the old Arabic inspired template was replaced by a more minimalist approach, which I personally think fits their label of being international.


I found some cool changes in it, they now have a featured banner where a slideshow of previous selected photos can be seen, also they have a newly added menu "Photographers Directory" where I guess they will put the names of previous winners for easy reference, but it is still in working progress.

The great news aside from the newly constructed website is that, this prestigious competition  spearheaded by H.H. Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum have opened its "Creating the Future" 2014 competition, just 3 days after p their 2013 "Beauty of Light" winner. Aspirants all over the world can submit entries as early as now and take their chance on winning the coveted grand prize of $120,000.

HIPA has once again been kind enough to its participants as they lengthened the time frame for accepting entries, It started last 21st March 2013 and will end up accepting entries on the 31st December 2013. It will be a long 9 months of tedious filtering thousands of photographs from all over the world and a much bigger responsibility for the HIPA team to carefully pick the deserving winners.

So what are you guys waiting for? HIPA is calling all of you to register and join now for HIPA 2014.




Thanks for your time...

LUMU | Bringing Light Meter to the 21st century

As we are waiting for Project: Spacefish to be unraveled by Hink, I remembered being added-up on twitter by an entity last month hinting that they will make their product launch also this summer.

The company name is LUMU, and they will cater a product which is a light meter. Lumu claims that they will redefine the way light meter functions, to cope up with the present technological advances of photography. I really can't say much about a light meter because personally I don't have one; and I'm just relying on my cameras histogram every time i'm doing my shoot.


So what are we expecting about this product? In Lumu's twitter account, I found out that their device will be compliant with an IOS app which means they are like Luxi--a clip-on light meter for I-phones. It's a good thing I have an I-phone and I'll not be falling behind if this thing comes up :)




It does make sense when they said that their product will be a "game changer" as they answered one of their followers that the hardware will be extremely precise. I can say that I love the confidence that this team is showing and I hope it they will live up to their promise.

Compared to my previous article about Hink, which only brought out additional details and we haven't seen anything yet concrete. Lumu already pulled the bunny out of the hat by showing the design and technology behind it and their team worked out with a pre-production of their product, which for me is more enticing to anticipate.

The product also looks cool, as it is a pocket light meter they even showed it as a stylish necklace where the diffusion dome was the bling!

Lumu already confirmed their participation in NY Disrupt 2013 this April 29th – May 1st and let's see if if they will shoot the lights out and make the change.

You can find out more of Lumu at their website at http://lu.mu/ or for my viewers here in the Middle East use this site http://lumu.eu as the other web address is blocked due to unknown restriction. Add them up as well in twitter @Lumu.


Thanks for your time...

Haters gonna hate | Hinkers gonna Hink


I was checking out my blog yesterday when I noticed something odd on my live feed, strangely my recent viewers are all coming from the site of LightingRumours and I started wondering why? Out of curiosity I immediately check their website (which I always do every day) and found their recent post about Hink’s soon to be launch product. As I am reading about it, I was surprised that in the later part of the article LightingRumours mentioned my blog site and it was freaking AWESOME!! So a big THANKS to David Selby!!

E-session | Tati & Eduardo




I was recently hired by a friend to do their engagement shoot for their upcoming wedding next month in Brazil. It’s really heart-warming to know that people notice your craft and entrusts you to do their pre-nuptial photos.
