Filipinos naturally love taking pictures wherever they go. And Richard Gomez is one of them.
The actor's first photo exhibit carried "travels" as the theme, and it was held during the Canon EOS Photographer's Night last September 25, at the NBC Tent, The Fort in Taguig City.
Richard told PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) that he has already collected more than a hundred thousand photos since he started to learn taking pictures.
He narrated how he started his hobby. "When I was about 8 years old. My mom had a camera na pinapagamit niya sa akin. Then, when I was working already in 1987, I bought my first SLR [single lens reflex] camera. Film pa noon, then doon na nagsimula 'yon."
With so many pictures to choose from, how did Richard select the ones which will be shown to public?
"We looked for a theme," the Codename: Asero actor answered. "Then, while looking at the pictures, we came up with a theme. The theme became the pictures in my travels, so most of these shots are from my travels."
While he was showing his works, Richard told PEP that his favorites are the series he shot from Boracay and New York City.
Showbiz personalities who were spotted by PEP: John Estrada and girlfriend Priscilla Meirelles, Bobby Andrews and wife Bien, Douglas Quijano, Ben Chan, and the Queen of Philippine Cinema, Susan Roces.
