The royalty prepping up.

Today, I had the rare chance to work with the international portrait photographer Rupert Jacinto who is now compiling portraits for an upcoming book of political royalties around the world which is set to be released on February of next year. For people my age (under 25, ehem), the name would not ring a bell, but for people like Ivana Trump, Princess Chantal of France, Imelda Marcos, and the likes, all have something good to say about him. It's  always very humbling and educational to work with a masterclass such as Mr. Jacinto because there's always a thing or two to learn- be it a technique, a trade secret, or an art. I always love the exchange of ideas and the creative discourse while in the process because this makes the education mutual because you both work on something to achieve a single goal, and that is to create one good photograph. Of course, this could only  work in a non-stereotypically  ego-filled environment. If there's one important thing I learned today, from the subject/model and the photographer, it is humility. Both of them are personalities waaaaay greater than I am (or to some Prada-wearing devils I know) but how the two showed importance to each people in the team is  admirable. I haven't seen that in a while. As some great woman once said: "Humility is the only one the Devil can not imitate."
