Can you tell us a little about yourself and Fhayeng Alarcon Photography.
I am from Manila, Philippines. I fell in love with photography long before I had my first digital camera in 2012. I took Basic Photography Lessons to get to know more about my camera’s technicality, and since then I never stopped learning and executing what I acquire. Portraiture is my first love actually, but a friend of mine who trusted me so much asked me to take photos of her son’s first birthday. That was the first event I ever took photos at, and the rest poured like rain, leading me to create my photography page on Facebook. Ergo, Fhayeng Alarcon Photography.
What inspired you to get started?
I love photographing just about anything from a simple chair, the colors of the flowers, people’s smiles, the sky etc. They all inspire me…
What do you enjoy most about your work?
Happiness never stops for an event photographer like myself. Getting to know people from all walks of life, the fun in the events world is just ineffable. The best thing is being able to be a part of my clients’ history through the photographs I take for them.
What has been your most memorable experience so far this year?
Every event is memorable for me. 😉
If you could travel anywhere in the world to take photographs, where would it be and why?
Europe, specifically England. I’m a Philippa Greogory fanatic.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Singing is my first love. I think I’m good at it too 😉
What are your 5 favorite foods?
Hmmmm… I have a semi-sophisticated palate. More often than not, I spend too much on food, more than on my shoes.
