Filipino photographer Marc Aviles shoots not with the most expensive Hasselblads nor the top of the line Nikon or Canon DSLRs. His humble Canon EOS 400D is definitely consumer-grade, but he shoots with the keen eye of a true artist.
Thatâ€™s why he wins photo contests like the recent one by Pop Photo. He came out on top as â€œThe Best Shooter on the Planetâ€ and pocketed $5,000 in cash after sweeping Popular Photography & Imagingâ€™s 2007 Photographer of the Year competition.
It was a grueling competition, not your everyday submit-your-photos-online-and-you’re-done kind of contest, but a series of shootouts that separate true photographers from wannabes.
Hop on over to PopPhoto.com to read why Marc doesnâ€™t need pricey gear to be the Best Shooter on the Planet. Iba ang Pinoy!
