Station 3

Posted in Photoblog by Sonny Thakur on April 14, 2011

I spent the whole week assisting www.francisco-guerrero.com with Jake of www.cherryblocks.com

During our down time, we shared some laughs at a ‘street side’ cafe by boat station 3 in Boracay, Philippines. Summer hedonism capital of the Philippines.

Shot over the span of a couple hours in two days, with lighting varying greatly. Maybe I should get Jake to make them look nice and even. He’s a retoucher and a pretty good one at that. Make sure you get his contact deets from http://www.cherryblocks.com. He gets a blog entry after this one.

Have a great summery/spring everybody! Cheers from Manila!

Year in Review

Posted in Uncategorized by Sonny Thakur on December 20, 2010

2010 was one hell of a roller coaster ride. I’ve made tons of new friends, and have lost some dear ones. I visited my motherland after being away for ten long years, and I have experienced so many new things. Most of my resolutions for 2010 have been met, and some of them have even been shattered. I got to experience Bhang Chocolate while on a safari in the middle of the Thar desert. I got to see me work on the walls of a gallery in Singapore, and have been on many exciting shoots as an assistant. I have also addressed the issue of my ever expanding waistline and have gotten back into decent shape, but plan to get even leaner as the months go by. I missed tons of opportunities this 2010, and because of that I’ll be a lot more aggressive this 2011. Thank you, friends, for standing by me through all the ups and downs, I love you all, no homo. Thank you also to the people who keep inspiring and changing the way I look at the mundane and the everyday. You guys are the reason I still take photos. Now let’s let the pictures do the talking.

Looking forward to 2011
