I'm an incoming freshman in the Ateneo and I was just wondering about the application process to be a photographer for the Guidon. Interview? Essay? Portfolio? Hope you can answer this! I really love your blog! <3
(Sorry if you asked this the other day and I kind of forgot about it hehehe) When I applied for the first time, I had to write 3 essays: on myself, comparing The GUIDON to another publication outside of Ateneo, and an essay on what makes a good photo. I also had to “stalk” ten people (sometimes literally because I was too shy to ask them if I could take their photo). I had an interview with my photo editor and I had to submit my portfolio. It was suuuuuuper hard and long. I did an all-nighter for it while I was studying for a math test and then I went to training at 6AM. Crazy, but it was totally worth it! :)
GOOD LUCK HOPE TO SEE YA IN A FEW MONTHS!

16/52 weeks - Finally had an instax with this cool girl! The team played in Batangas in a really weird field with coconut trees and hills in the outfield. If you get to hit a tree and the coconuts fall down, the organizers would have rewarded you P1500. HAHAHA!
Day and Night. Rented a little beach house in Matuod!
