Pinoy fashion, vintage style: Maximum impact

MANILA, Philippines - What was supposed to be a simple shoot to promote a photography studio ended up as one of my favorite shoots to date.

I had never worked with Paco Guerrero at the time and I had only known him through his travel show “What I See,” as well as his images for the “It’s More Fun in the Philippines” campaign. He expressed a wish to shoot more fashion and that was when I came into the picture with my work as a fashion stylist.

Only briefly meeting prior to the models arriving and after going through the wardrobe, we realized that each model should have their own story rather than the original plan of shooting them together.

Here are the stunning images produced from such a spur-of-the-moment shoot:
