Davao-Born International Photographer Captures Spectacular Spots In The Philippines

Raulito "Jojo" Seriña was born in Malalag, Davao del Sur.  His family transferred to Wao, Lanao del Sur during his primary years, studied Computer Engineering in Cebu during his college years, and later went to Australia on a scholarship for his Masters in Technology, where he eventually worked and lived independently.

His work in web development eventually led him to Canada and Hawaii where he became known as a fashion and celebrity photographer despite starting with landscape photography. Feeling that he needed more room to grow as a photographer, he transferred to San Francisco, California in the USA, and now travels the world to shoot weddings in locations that would leave you in awe.

Jojo loves sketching, and this love for the art and craft shows in all his photographs.

His works have been featured in Elle Magazine and he has photographed Hollywood blogger Perez Hilton, first Filipino Ms. America Angela Baraquio, 4 Miss Hawaii winners, as well as Filipino celebrities Sam Milby, Tommy Esguerra, and Jay-R.

Jojo has even delved in the glamorous world of couture, covering high fashion events like Escada, Louis Vuitton, Guess, and DKNY's numerous shows, and has been been featured by Adobo Nation of ABS-CBN’s The Filipino Channel (TFC).

In spite of all his travels, however, he still comes home to the Philippines every now and then for work and leisure. The most important thing for him, however, is touching ground with his relatives.

“My goal is to photograph the best of the Philippines and do an exhibit of my works, and write a book.”
