Out Of The Box!

At last!

After staying in a box for 4 months since we packed it for our move to Sydney, I finally brought out some of my studio lights.I was elated and happy to see that my trusty equipment still worked flawlessly. I still had my background paper rolls of different colors packed and it was too much of a bother to unpack them so decided to just shoot inside the house and use any background I could find. I went for a simple light set-up. I had invited a niece of mine to pose for me at home just to practice my studio photography instincts. And so with a lot of help from my daughter Erica, my very good and just recently employed professional make up artist ( I say this not as her dad. TOTOO!), and my very photogenic model-muse Chinny, I got a few shots going which I wish to share with you.

I did not realize how much I had missed taking studio shots. I really enjoyed myself tonight. And so from here on folks, I am announcing the availability of this photographer to take your photos in my studio or anywhere you wish. For more of my shots, go here. Write me at jim_paredes@yahoo.com for details and appointments.

Blue Eagles In Sydney

Last Saturday night, I had a blast attending a dinner for my family and I hosted by the Ateneo alumni here in Sydney. Eagles of all ages an d from all branches showed up and it was great connecting with all of them. It’s nice to know that there are Ateneans everywhere. Somehow, it makes a foreign country feel more like home. Thanks so much Kate Andres, Dino Crescini, Obet Dionisio and everyone else. My family and I appreciate the hospitality.

More and more like Manila

If everything goes as planned, I will soon be announcing the details of the 1st run of my TAPPING THE CREATIVE UNIVERSE Workshop here in Sydney. This is going to be the 30th run worldwide of this ‘unblocking of creativity’ activity which I totally get into as its creator and facilitator. I am really excited about it.

More and more, I am slowly getting back to doing the things that I loved to do in Manila here in Sydney. I am doing all the creative activities I love–writing, photography, teaching, music, doing workshops. After winter, it will be diving. And oh, did I tell you that APO Danny and Boboy are coming soon and that I will have the pleasure of singing with them in Sydney and Melbourne?
