Photographer of the Week – Noel Guevara
By Lia Barrett, October 6, 2016 @ 04:00 AM (EST)

Photographer of the Week, Noel Guevara, hails from what I like to refer to as a tribe of super talent that is concentrated in the Philippines. I’m pretty sure there’s something in the water over there (yes, some of it is definitely the gorgeous fish life), but the bar is definitely set higher. From friendly competition to a plethora of gadget geeks, the Philippines boast many very inspiring shooters these days.

But what I think set Noel’s portfolio apart from many of his counterparts is his tendency towards wide-angle subjects. Because there are so many great places to shoot macro in the region, you often see some of the most intricate and impressive tiny subject shots; however, Noel’s images range from sharks to schooling fish to dolphins. Noel’s work also gives us a wonderful window into the diverse range of pelagics that roam his 7,000-plus island archipelago.
