Coverage of The Wild Side Open Photoshoot Competition-1st Leg

The 1st leg of the Wild Side Open Photoshoot Competition organized by O-N International Production Phil. Corp. in collaboration with the Department of Tourism, and various Provincial governments was held June 23-24, 2012 at the island of Alabat, Quezon.

The Travel

The exciting two day excursion to the scenic landscape of the town of Alabat, Quezon started at the meeting point at the Penthouse of Jay-Ar Rosales, president of the O-N International Production Phil. Corp., in Pasay City. Leaving there at 4 a.m. traveling on a chartered air-conditioned bus towards the port of Atimonan, Quezon with one stop to pick-up the other crews of the event.

We arrived at the Atimonan Port by 8:40 a.m. and travelled by pumpboat by 9:15 a.m. to the island of Alabat.

We arrived at the Port of Alabat around 10 a.m.  The island was expecting us with the welcoming poster of the event hanged in the port's waiting area.

Around 10:30 a.m., we arrived at the La Villaneuva Beach Resort after trans versing the mountain slopes by tricycle.

We had lunch of fresh seafood that includes adobong pusit and sinigang na hipon. You can really taste the difference in freshness of the daily catch.  There was also the refreshing pure buko juice.

Everybody settled in their assign rooms and cottages for some rest and prepared for the afternoon photoshoot.

The Photoshoot - Location 1

It was almost 3 p.m. when we went to the 1st location of the shoot: the rocks near the resort. I was first with Jun, one of the photographer contestants and followed his action at the 1st location.

On the way to the 2nd location, I saw Amor, another contestant, and captured in video a portion of his lively shoot.

At 3:50 p.m., we took a banca to the next location.

The Photoshoot - Location 2

It started drizzling as we left to the second location.  After a short 5 minutes banca trip, we arrived at the 2nd location. Fortunately the rain stopped.

The tide was still low so the banca anchored on an almost knee deep waters and we walked to the shore.
I was again with Jun and documented his shoot at the 2nd location.

The 2nd location embodies the concept of this Open Photoshoot Competition.  Beauties in Nature!
The beauty of the Philippines’ natural environment showcased in a photo competition that combines nature and beauties in fashion in one composition.
