Angel of Photography

It’s the holiday season and FPC would like to present to you an Angel.

Karen Angelynne Leong also known as angelynne or simply Karen in Flickr.com is the only Lady photographer I know personally who is always on the go and is very much willing to be either in front of the camera or behind it.

Ritzie

She’s describes herself as very cheerful and love to smile. She’s in love with photography and practically loves taking photos of anything under the sun from kids, people, natures, plants, animals, sceneries and many more. She also loves to pamper herself, this is where the love for traveling, bags, wallets, shoes and jewelries come in. :D

FPC: Aside from staying behind the camera, you've also modeled for fellow photographers. When/how did this start and how was this experience for you?
ANGEL: Before becoming a photographer, I always wanted to be the subject, so i decided to have a yearly photoshoot which started last 2002, then, I showed to my photographer friends my pictures. One of them said that I can be a model and want me to modeled for them, I said yes, and that’s how everything started. :)
- The experience is fun! its more tiring to be a model than a photographer :)

FPC: Any Plans for this Holidays? Like Going abroad or out of town?
ANGEL: No, I will be in Manila for the holidays. Its been quite sometime haven't stayed here for the holidays :)

ANGEL: Always be a professional, its better for the client to be late than you're the one who's late :)

A Message from the Angel:

Trust is to believe. It is something that we should always treasure and be careful about. I learned that when you over trust someone, there's no assurance that they will reciprocate often times you think who your friends are, who you trusted the most, they'll be the one to stab you at the back with such incredible stories.

All of us should learn how to protect ourselves and don't over trust people, there's an old saying "old friends are the best friends", believe in karma.
