Manny was a full-time teacher at an international school in Bangkok where he discovered his passion for photography, and where the rest of the online world discovered his unique “purely ambient light” approach to glamour, fashion, and travel portraiture.
Named by Scott Kelby in 2010 as one of the Top Five photographers in the world (that you’ve never heard of), Manny holds annual photography workshops worldwide including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Toronto, Quebec, Dubai, Kuwait, Sydney, Melbourne, Egypt, Singapore, the Philippines, etc. Manny has an uncanny ability to spot ambient light on the set and render them artistically onto his photographs. This style is so unique, and his photographs so compelling, that many professional photographers the world over have flown to Bangkok to spend a weekend shooting & learning from him.
Manny’s captivating photographs regularly top online photography competitions. In addition, they’ve graced numerous UNICEF calendars, commercial work, international magazines, and the covers of some of the world’s leading photography publications (Asian Geographic and the Digital Photographer Magazine.)
