Mostly Everything

An Invitation to Shoot, Learn, and Have Fun!


What: Cosplay Photo Shoot with Jerry Polence with guest photographer Markku Seguerra
When: May 20 2007 2-6 PM
Where: Club Intramuros Golf Course (how to get there)

I’ve helped put together a mini event thanks to Jerry Polence, Mike Abundo and Markku Seguerra on the 20th of May. We’re going to be shooting models in full cosplay attire thanks to the Pinoy Cosplay organization. This invitation to shoot and learn is open to all bloggers who would want to learn to take better photos. It is also an excuse to take time out of your usual routine and join in on something completely different for the lazy weekend.

MANILA, Philippines – Seguerra, one of today’s fast-rising photographers has volunteered his time to do an informal hands-on photo class with help from Jerry Polence and other models from the Pinoy Cosplay organization. Seguerra’s work as a photographer has been acclaimed to highlight the best in outdoor portrait photography capturing. His many works can be viewed on his personal site at

If you own a camera (you don’t need to have a Digital SLR and if you have a lomo, why not?) and want to join in on the fun, please feel free to come. It is another chance to meet a lot of awesome people in the blogosphere, cosplay as well as hobbyist photographers. I really hope to see you there. Markku and I will be in Intramuros by around lunch time on the 20th to survey the area.

If there are other hobbyist photographers who would like to share their own tips, please, the floor is yours to share too! 🙂

Im not a cosplay blogger but I want to join tomorrow. Wheres the exact meeting place in Intramuros golf? Club house? Driving range? parking area?

How can I recognize the group? May uniform ba or name tag or streamer?


Mods: PLs erase my most recent message. I already attended the photo shoot this pm. Thanks.


It was a pleasure meeting you, as well as all the guys! I had a wonderful time. This was definitely a highly successful get together.

You have got to put another one soon! Hehehe!

salamat it was fun & cool to meet you guys..
along with our frens in lomomanila & flickr…ayos!
heheh,till the next episode uli!


Guys, thanks a lot for this opportunity! I had a great time! 🙂 Can’t wait for the next one…already excited!

Too bad I wasn’t able to meet the other photographers. Maybe next time we could introduce ourselves to one another, I know it’s hard to do so though especially if it’s a huge group (like the one awhile ago). Hahaha!

By the way, if it’s not too much to ask, can I have a high resolution copy of the group photo?

Thanks again! 😀

It was fun shooting with you guys, when will be the next? hehehe! I might post the pix on my site tomorrow.

Like Louie I would be happy to have a copy of the Group photo.
