Fine arts graduate Vic Sison brought more than just his artist’s eye to photography; he also took his brush into the darkroom to pioneer a print form that he calls “paintography,” a step up from hand-tinting photographs. Vic has had numerous solo photo exhibitions in Manila, and has won major awards in national photo competitions. Vic has been a lecturer for the FPPF workshops since 1993, and has taken his seminars around the country. He also handled sessions at PhotoWorld Manila and was on the faculties of PWU, TUP, and FEU from 1988 to 1997. His work is included in a picture book on the flower festival in Baguio, and in a book on Ilocos Sur.
Rod Banzon is a professional photographer who excels in product shots. He has done commercial assignments for various advertising companies and has a string of photography awards.

He also shows students how to successfully photograph shiny objects like glass and metals. The techniques he imparts can be very valuable to aspiring commercial photographers.
