Huawei Philippines offers budding photographers the chance to sharpen their skills through a series of workshops dubbed Behind Portrait Photography. This series of workshops takes place nationwide in the next couple of months.
Redefining portrait photography
A media workshop kicked off the Manila leg of Behind Portrait Photography, taking place at the Leica Store in Greenbelt 5, Makati City last May 25, 2017. Featuring renowned photographer Dookie Ducay, the workshop discussed the basics of photography, the importance of tools used, and the artistry of portraiture. Dookie guided participants on how to get the most out of a portrait using the Huawei P10, demonstrating its superior image quality courtesy of its Leica co-engineered dual camera.
Our PR Director, When In Manila Mae, took a sample photo using the Huawei P10.
Participants got to try out the dual camera capabilities of the Huawei P10 for themselves, experiencing the exquisite studio-like results never before captured by a smartphone.

Raul Echivarre, Leica Akademie instructor raves about the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus’ camera hardware stating, “The power of Leica lens embedded in the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus prove how technology enables photography talent to grow anywhere. Mobile photography should no longer be compromised, and with the dual camera’s incredible ability to capture light, color, and detail, consumers can unleash their photography talent and potential without limits.”
Portrait expert and the workshops’ facilitator, Dookie Ducay shares his experience at the workshop and with the Huawei P10 as well, saying “I was really impressed with the P10’s ability to produce such professional-looking images. The workshop is a great avenue to let people know the depth of portrait photography, and with the Huawei P10, I believe we can look forward to seeing masterpieces from ordinary people everywhere.”
Honing more local talent and enthusiasm
Following the exclusive media workshop, Huawei conducted two consecutive sessions for consumers last May 27 and 28 at Elias Restaurant, Bonifacio High Street in Taguig. Fashion and beauty photography extraordinaire Sara Black shared her knowledge on the second day, with Dookie Ducay again took the reins on the Sunday session. The workshop was open to all Huawei users, to provide them with a one-of-a-kind and hands-on learning opportunity from some of the most well-known local experts.
“The most iconic portraits are defined by outstanding lighting and clarity of details. Working as a lifestyle photographer for many years now, I always place a premium on how these two elements are reflected in every shot I make, and the Huawei P10 makes this very convenient. They instantly give dramatic touches to every photo, revealing interesting stories or realities of every subject that are rarely captured even through words,” Sara Black shares.
The sessions were capped off with a portrait taking activity with the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus. Brand new Huawei P10 units were given to the participants with the best portrait taken. These lucky winners are Ryanne Co, Roden Cruz of Sta. Ana, Manila, and Mark Bondoc of Pasig City.
