Aren’t they a gorgeous pair? Meet the beautiful Myla Barandog and the dashing Lance Shan, winners of Shutterfairy Photography’s first-ever styled engagement session giveaway (contest opened September last year; winners announced October)!

OK, full disclosure now: Going east isn’t, has never […]Read more "Let’s Make Beautiful Music: Carter and Pauline"
You’d think that after a certain period of being an apprentice you would, as a matter of course, move on to the next level, no questions asked. I’d begun my apprenticeship at Shutterfairy Photography in August 17, 2011, and so when August 17 of this year came I expected to receive an e-mail or letter […]Read more "Photographing the Photographer: Malou Pages"
Couple of photos from the album cover shoot that I did some two weeks back. The band is called Womb, a trip hop/electronica/experimental rock collective signed to Cattski Espina’s 22 Tango Records, and they are set to release their debut album late this year or early next, depending on how fast they breeze through all […]Read more "Sneak Peek: Womb Album Cover Shoot"
