In today’s issue of Picture Perfect, Manila Bulletin’s photography section, Adrian Agulto, the Founder and Chief Food Photographer of I Shoot Food Manila is featured as Photographer of the Week!
Showcasing some of Adrian’s best shots, Manila Bulletin writer, Mr. Jojie Alcantara points out that, “Indeed, his food images come off to a viewer as enticing and easy on the eyes not only for their quietly laid out composition as if someone is actually going through the meal and sharing the intimacy with you, and not dolled up for an advertising setup.” (page E-4)
In an interview, Adrian recalls his beginnings as a photographer. Narrating his experience as the Cravings Group of Restaurants’ then creative manager, when he was looking for a photographer for a rushed campaign material, he discovered that all he needed was to search within himself and click the trigger. Other people discovered from then on, that more than just passion, he also had the skills of an artist and the discipline of a professional photographer.
Food Photographer, Manila-based artist Adrian Agulto closes the article with these words to live by, “…photography is not just a field you can enter to compete in. Photography is a way of life.”
