The latest issue of D+C (Design and Construction) magazine features my four articles that I’ve contributed, both text and photos: 1) A feature on the latest SM Mall in Cebu, 2) Azumi Boutique Hotel Advertorial, 3) Interview of Architect Danny Co (text only), and 4) a listicle of 10 Instagrammable restos and cafes around the Philippines.

As you might have noticed, starting 2015, I’ve been a regular contributor to this magazine, which comes out quarterly, and have interviewed several Architects already as well as shot several of their architecture works.

The SM Seaside City is actually an offshoot of an online advertorial thus, I was able to gain access to shoot the interiors of the mall. It’s such a beautiful architecture, especially the lobby of the cinema, which made it to the cover. The color of the light actually changes from time to time and is just mesmerizing.

For the Azumi Boutique Hotel advertorial, I had a great time photographing the interiors, especially the well designed lobby and the penthouse bar. The rooms on the other hand are minimalist.

Just a note though, I’m including in this post my interview with Architect Robert John Sac in the previous issue. Of the six issues I’ve already worked with, the January-March 2016 issue was the only one where I did one article and no cover.

But I’m more excited with the July-September issue as I interviewed the Manosa siblings and photographed their homes.

For the Instagrammable cafes and restos, this is a compilation of the many restaurants and cafes that I’ve shot over the years of which some have been featured here in this blog.
