I can’t wait to join the El Nido Photography Festival and learn from the very best photographers — George Tapan and Wig Tysmans!

I learned a lot from these two masters from last year’s photo sessions:
10 Timeless Lessons I Learned From Master Photographer George Tapan
Wig Tysmans – 10 Secrets in Capturing the Money Shot

Join me for the Outdoor Photography Workshop with George Tapan in Miniloc or the Fashion Travel Photography with Wig Tysmans in Lagen on October 9-11, 2009! (I’m still thinking about which workshop to attend… hmmm…)

I can’t wait to go back to the Best Beach in the Philippines and kayak our way from Miniloc to the Small and Big Lagoons.

I can’t wait to go back to Entalula Island, Shimizu Island and other small white beach islands like the one above where you can just hang out and eat a casual meal, or swim when you want to.

I can’t wait to experience the luau-themed graduation party awaiting all the participants to culminate the event.

One of these days, I will try out underwater photography. I still don’t have a certification and I’m not sure if I can get it in time for the underwater workshop with Tommy Schultz. (Is it possible?)
