Right on the heel of the recent success of Hothouse America comes the third installation of the Hothouse Workshop Series, Hothouse Rizal. And this one was the most intense yet – two entire days with the most awesome thirty-five participants (yes, treinta y cinco) with nothing but pure metrofication! yeah! hahaha.
Set in the elegant and laid back thunderbird hotel and casino resort in Angono Rizal, the workshop not only featured Metrophoto but the other top brands in the Philippine wedding industry as well. Top-notch designer Veluz Reyes provided the wedding gown for the shoot along with Teddy Manuel (wild flower-inspired bouquet) and Madge Lejano (make-up and styling). It was a feast for the eyes.
Again, I would like to extend my deepest gratification to all those who made the Hothouse workshops not only possible but such a kick-ass success. The outpouring support from both friends, family, and followers (who are now my new found friends) is hugely humbling =) We got participants who flew in from all parts of the country to be Metrofied – from CDO, Davao, Bohol, and Cebu. =)
With such a big hit, it would be easy to assume that it doesn’t get any better than this. But like with anything Metrophoto, it always gets better (and more fab!). Hahaha! We’re in the middle of redesigning the next edition of Hothouse. It will be something that’s unprecedented and unheard of in photography workshops. It will be like Hothouse on steroids! hahaha =) While it won’t be happening until at least after several months, please do frequent the site (especially those metrofyees who failed to make the list) for teasers and official announcements. See you in Poro! =)
This is Jerremy, a metrophoto groom and currently the only hothouse two-timer! =)

Team Metrophoto! =)
As a bonus, Madge Lejano provided a short talk on the importance of make-up in creating kick-ass photographs.
Tanja Winheim was the beautiful metrophoto bride for the workshop =)
Teddy Manuel named his wild and elegant bouquet after me. Oliexotica! love love it! =)
Looks like a scene from CSI! CSI Rizal! hahaha.
My trusted and talented #2, Francis Yllana, proved further his varying skills by modeling for us. =)
