Hello! I am Edneil Jocusol, a 27-year old Filipino expat working in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia — an engineer by profession, a photographer by vocation, a writer by calling.
In the advent of Photoshop, it's getting harder these days to separate reality from fantasy. As a photographer, my aim is to draw the line between the two. Under my lens, I view the world as a raw and perfect scene requiring minimal enhancements as much as possible.
Time, light, accuracy, emotion, transparency — these are my five key takeaways in shooting images that will extract the real story from a fast-moving, ever-changing society. If there's no emotion, I won't press the shutter button. If there's no story, I'd rather dump the photo.
I believe that we are a marvelous creation of a creative God. And in return, we should paint the world by being creative as well. I do this by taking photoshoots of landscapes, portraits of people in action according to their diverse culture & lifestyle, and travel documentaries of places unappreciated.
This creativity has led me to many adventures, and has given me the chance to collaborate with some truly talented individuals. I’m always searching for more opportunities to explore further, continue growing and expand my skill set. If you’d like to learn more, get in touch.
To a better world, yours truly, Edneil.
