HOT TICKET TEAM
Anacleta Paredes- Make-up Artist
I was always fascinated by theatre - how a play could transport you to a certain time and a certain place, how actors would transform into different roles while on set, and how just by watching, you feel completely immersed as if you are an eye witness to something real. I thought of makeup so I enrolled in a basic professional makeup course at Make-Up Forever here in the Philippines. After the very first day, I knew I was meant to be a makeup artist. I just enjoy the whole concept of how makeup could not only alter ones appearance but like theatre, create a whole new idea of who you are. After studying, I started working as a freelance makeup artist and as an apprentice to Jigs Mayuga.
Kim Velasco- Fashion Stylist
Clothes taken to different themes made to photos are what I am fond of. Fashion evolves easily and transformation of people are simply done with the clothes that they wear – whether it may be the right size, the right style or the confidence they gain from how they can actually appear in the photos. Being an intern for Cosmopolitan magazine made me exposed to what we can do for the Hot Ticket blog. I have enthusiasm for fashion and art; therefore styling can be my artistic expression of it.
Gerry Robinson- Photographer
I am a self-taught photographer who just started last 2010. With no background, I learned through the Internet by reading articles online and by watching tutorial videos in Youtube. I concentrated on beauty shoots first and then thought of getting into fashion photography as well. I joined and photographed for Philippine Fashion Week under the supervision of Mr. Nelson Villarica. My works have been published in the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Metro Magazine and the New You Magazine. For me, photography is a medium that can share the uniqueness of each individual. It also expresses the feelings and emotions of a person through movement. I was a dancer and as an artist, taking pictures is what influences me to capture it. I also get inspired with the music I listen to, with the movies I watch, and with the clothes that people wear. As much as I love colored photos, black and white photography is my favorite because it brings out a classier look and shows a different feel to what the photo transports to its viewers.
