Artem Levy on the pages of Cebu Daily News
My favorite Cebu-based Russian photographer, Artem Levy, is starting to go places – both literally and figuratively. Not only is he now known for wedding pre-nuptial shoots and the like, he has also gone into edgy editorial shoots and fashion pictorials that focus on both the subject and the grand-looking exteriors. Recently, he booked a gig in Singapore for a series of pictorials that gave a refreshing look for the Lion City in the background. And if that’s not enough, Cebu Daily News has given him a generous spread with accompanying article on its pages.
It’s only a matter of time before he fully spreads his wings and continuously forge ahead in his craft. And I can’t wait for the time when he makes Manila one of his regular work places as well.
And your blogger as an out-of-the-box model, perhaps? Wink. Wink.
Artem's shots in Extraterrestrial Polish
Singapore looks so much more enticing here. Of course, the model is gorgeous in the first place.
On the stairs, the lady catches your attention. But the overall look of the photograph is what caught my attention more.
And if you think Artem is exclusive for editorials, he is also game for shooting events like the one above where Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2014 Kris Janson (right) and Miss Tourism International 2013 Angeli Dione Gomez are shown being photographed by him.
The modeling agency that has carved a name for itself in the Queen City of the South has already opened its Manila office with Designer (and FDAP member) Dexter Alazas as Managing Director and (Singapore-trained Make-up Artist and former runway model) Luna Van Der Linden as Senior Booker.
AD Models Management – which jump-started the commercial and photographic careers of names such as Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2014 Kris Tiffany Janson, TVC staple Vince Canizares, former Ford Supermodel of the Word Philippines Verns Buckley, Miss Tourism International 2013/14 Angeli Dione Gomez and Miss Earth 2007 Karla Henry – is holding screenings for potential models at their Manila headquarters – Fraser Place on Valero Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City.
If you fit the detailed qualifications above, send an email (With contact details) to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be promptly reached. For quick inquiries, you can also call up AD Models Manila at (02) 5511829 or its Cebu office at (32) 2608006.

Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism International 2014 Glennifer Perido will start conquering Kuala Lumpur today!
She should have left two days earlier, but had to take a delay because of Typhoon Ruby.
Today, Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism International 2014 Glennifer Perido finally boarded the flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to start her bid for a back-to-back-to-back win in Miss Tourism International 2014 happening on the night of December 31. She remains optimistic that the reigning titleholder (Angeli Dione Gomez) will crown her as successor. And at this point, she is doing away with all the negative vibes and focusing on the task at hand.
Glennifer will be giving souvenir Philippine coins to all the candidates.
Inside her luggage (four (4) large ones all in all
) are the souvenir Philippine coins she will be giving away to the other candidates as token gifts.
Whatever the results will show, Glen will be giving it her 101% best #ForThePhilippines.
May the force be with you, Glennifer.
You are a good girl deserving of the achievement.
Do us proud. :-)
See you in 2015, Glennifer!
Miss Tourism International 2014/2015 will officially welcome its candidates by mid-December
Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism International 2014 Glennifer Perido is peaking at just the right moment
Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism International 2014 Glennifer Perido knows fully well that she has an ultra-tough challenge ahead as she prepares to finalize her wardrobe for Miss Tourism International 2014/15. And the pressure is something that would bog down a pageant newbie, let alone an individual who is not prepared to take in the back-to-back-to-back mission.
But not Glennifer. She is ready. And instead of letting the two previous consecutive wins of the Philippines in the pageant take a toll on her poise and all, she’d rather look at how she can be the best version of herself in Kuala Lumpur for the competition. Add to that an underlying psy-war of sorts to combat the inflow of anxiety. She knows that there is no longer a target on her back because the other candidates will automatically assume that it would be impossible for the same country to score another top victory because that would be stretching generosity to levels of excess. And that is where our rep will come from. She’ll do her thing without anybody breathing down her neck. And if she stands out with her performance, then well and good.
A back-to-back-to-back is almost unimaginable. But not totally out of this world. If Glennifer has it in her fate to be the successor of Miss Tourism International 2013/ 14 Angeli Dione Gomez, then it will happen. ;-)
Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism International 2012 and Miss Tourism International 2012 Rizzini Alexis Gomez needs your prayers. According to a reliable source, she is terminally ill with lung cancer.
I’m just as baffled as everyone else how the beautiful Cebuana – a health professional no less – contracted the disease. But we all know that the dreaded Big C can afflict any individual. It is possible that she has a weak part in her system that might have led to the same.
This is the main reason why she was unable to crown Angeli Dione Gomez as her back-to-back country successor during Miss Tourism International 2013. Being the real trouper, she still departed for Kuala Lumpur. But then again, her health condition got in the way of fulfilling her responsibilities as the outgoing titleholder.
It is never too late to ask for a miracle. But for now, let us pray for the ease of constant pain. More than the fact that she has given honor to the country in the international pageant stage, Rizzini is like a sister to all of us.
One (or hopefully two) of the thirty (30) hopefuls (watch their video invitations below) of Mutya ng Pilipinas 2014 will have a life-changing experience tonight once the winners of the beauty pageant are announced at the Grand Ballroom of Solaire Resort & Casino. With both of last year’s titleholders (Koreen Medina and Angeli Dione Gomez) around to give their farewell walk, I’m still expecting some sort of announcement about having two crowned winners with a new international competition to make up for the transfer of Miss Intercontinental to BPCI. Fingers crossed for that!

Best of luck, ladies! May the best Mutya win! :-D
Thanks to Kiddo Macalma of TPQ for sharing the above.
All six ladies above will relinquish their crowns come November and December.
Just so you know, the biggest chunk of international pageants are scheduled from August to December. And the list above includes even the less popular competitions.
November and December remain to be the months with the heaviest loads in terms of prestige and popularity. We have Miss International and Miss Earth during the 11th month, with Miss Universe, Miss World and Miss Supranational (not be confused with the India-based version) all vying for attention during the Holidays.
And the coverage will most likely get messed up during the 4th Quarter of 2014. I will try everything possible, though, to keep my sanity intact. ;-)
