BNS: The Ultimate GoSEA

For over a couple of  years Bleachnstain has made a photo+fashion pilgrimage to the Beautiful Island of Cagbalete. Organizing models, make-up artists, stylists and photographers into the ultimate folio-building summer shoot.

With mobile lights and massive light modifiers, BNS seeks to provide wonderful shooting conditions for photographers both new and advanced to capture stunning photographs. Perfect for models and stylists as well who want to extend their folio and range.

The three-day two night stay will be an adventure of sorts. With the sights and sounds of sea and sand, the lights and looks, it will be one for the books.

This has got to be one of the best shoots in Washday History. Factoring out the wonderful pull-outs from fashion revolutionary Happy Andrada and corsets from Jerry Ocampo (thanks Nina Dumpa). Accessories from Felix Lim (Belated Happy Birthday, you know we love you). Wigs and outfit from Jin (thanks for Breadtalk darling) Set Design by Benjo Pacson and a stellar cast of Make-up artists that has been with us ever since Nica Espadero, Lawrence Bondoc, Rina Bautista, Dino Lazaro and Jam Pinaroc.

The atmosphere was great, light and spacious, all attention to details. Logistics and traffic were great. Special thanks to special performances (Single Ladies) Icko, Evan and Dino + Lyka and Sinoia. It was full of fun and laughter and we love the personal feedback people are saying regarding our work. All hail to Ronan Espadero (and Mara), my right hand and studio techmaster.

We are so happy to be back and we love the way you guys eagerly waited for Washdays to come back. We look forward to finding ways in accommodating more advocates soon, maybe a three day shoot. Who knows.

For now, enjoy these photos.

PHOTOGS in BNS+Calibre

Chef-slash-Photographer JR Velasquez arrived with his model army for a fun filled shoot at BNS+Calibre. Ranging from clean and fresh to sexy and raunchy to high fashion, it was a day of full ranges.  Though a lot of great things can be said about his great skill in directing models, we have yet to decide whether his cooking skills are equally excellent (Hint: Pesto pasta, haha) // MUA: Victoria Contreras // Stylist: Lyka Galeon // Hair: Rolly Gecite // Assisted by: Ronan EspaderoAlso BNS+Calibre is pleased to have photographer Vincent who came to shoot our favorite Dooughnut. Teehee. 

Happy to have you guys in our studio

High on Hi-C

Model: Pop Singer Hi-C (one-third of Dice & K9) // Hair & Make-up + Styling: Clarence Cordova Esposo (i love this guy) // Agent: Jeman Villanueva //Clothes (above) : Happy Andrada (below) Joel Escober // Shot by Darz Pobre of Bleachnstain // Lighting Tech: Ronan EspaderoI love Hi-C’s spunk. She had that fire in her that pierced through every take of her photos. Her uber cool monster shoes were a sweet peek into the playful and rebellious nature of her beauty. From the tattoo clad body emerges a soft feminine glow of a woman of great talent. We were playing her CD (Body Talk) while during the shoot which up until now loops on my head (Thanks for the CD Luv). It’s not fair for someone so beautiful to be equally talented. Nyahahah.I have to hand it to my new favorite friend Clarence, who have wittingly balanced the trapezoidal role of a Stylist, Make-up artists and Hair extraordinaire.  One of the perks of this job is meeting excellent people who clearly have passion in their craft. All thanks to Jeman for trusting me with this shoot. Looking forward to more shoots of this nature. Thanks to Nono for the acryllic tip.

BNS OUT!  humming a Hi-C Song…..
