Joel Aquino Photography

Hi! My name is Joel Aquino, a freelance photographer based in Dubai. I live in Cavite, Philippines. I specialize in outdoor and studio portraiture and learning to do artistic wedding portraiture photography with a hint of fashion and modernity. I love to take pictures of people and events. My goal is to show the utmost beauty, grace, enthusiasm and emotion of people. I started photography last 2016. Learning the basic fundamentals of lighting inside the Nikon school. I also attended lots of workshop and events during my first year and until now. Because I believe that learning never stops. Before I get in to photography, I already know a lot about picture editing in Photoshop, so I didn't find it difficult to post process my photos. Now I feel really lucky because I can earn extra from my hobby to be able to support my family. Holding my Nikon D7200 camera gives me an opportunity to capture a specific vision to share with others. Ultimately, a well captured image represents a moment in time that is expressed infinitely, and that’s enough of a reason for me to hang a camera around my shoulders wherever I go. I always shoot in RAW and in manual mode. All of my post-processing is done in both Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. As an artist, the biggest favor I ever did myself was stop comparing my work to that of others, and rather than trying to immitate the editing style of someone else. Creating color grading that combined all my favorite things into one custom look. A mixture of rich, hazy, matte and muted colors. When I'm not holding my camera, I also enjoy playing PC games, reading books, watching youtube video tutorials, cooking, jogging and hanging out with friends in my free time. That’s all about me telling you. If you want to know more please contact me at (+971)50-996-7215. I would be glad to tell you. Thank you and God bless you...
