Jon Bucks Carlos - Kabayan's Weekly Winner
Jon Bucks Carlos aka JonCarlos

Jon Bucks Carlos, our photographer of the week, is a 34 year old native of Las Pinas City, Philippines.

Jon started photography in 2007. Together with his wife, they both took basic and advance photography workshops at FPPF. Isn’t it sweet and cool? It’s always fascinating to know couples who share and enjoy the same interesting hobby like photography.

He uses a Canon EOS 5D and couple of Canon lenses. He proudly stated that his most favorite lens is the nifty fifty. Yes, 50mm rocks!!!

When asked who influences his photography style, he stated, “Ador Pamintuan, Vic Sison and Ed Santiago are my mentors.”

Presently, Jon is interested in street photography. He also would like to learn and try fashion photography. Five years from now, he sees himself photographing weddings and events.

This one made it to the top 50 of the Photo World Cup photo contest. Taken in Castillejos, Zambales, Philippines during the Holy Week.

Jeepney repair

My most favorite of all the images that I have taken, simply because it symbolizes the Philippines. It was also a finalist of the Photo World Cup's “Jeepney” theme for the month of April.
