SCOTT KELBY. The main man of Worldwide Photowalk

"The shadows are so key in this wonderful image, and there are so many of them.

On top of it all — add the red wall and the red umbrella and it’s a really captivating image. Nicely crafted."

Apart from his passion in photography, Miguel works as a cinematographer who's into producing videos for events and corporate projects.

From among the 3 previous worldwide photowalk in the Philippines that were conducted in their area, he wasn't able to join any. This was his first one.
