CNN International: Screenshot of my photo essay on the home page

My Photo Essay Featured on CNN

Well, it was fun while it lasted. I don’t mean to gloat – really – it’s just fun to gain a little recognition for something I’m passionate about.

CNN International featured my photo essay of the Aliwan Festival on the CNN home page for a day. If you click on the above image you can see a full size version of the screen capture kindly sent to me by CNN Go’s Editor.

The photo essay is still up on CNN Go: http://www.cnngo.com/explorations/none/aliwan-festival-mother-all-festivals-812730 And I’ve been asked to be a regular (hopefully!?) contributor to CNN Go: http://www.cnngo.com/author/brandon-hoover (really need to change my self-portrait image)

I really hope this can be a jumping point from which to capture more of the Philippines. Indonesia is forever in my heart, but the Philippines is my home for now; it’s time to explore…

      Hi Glen, I will indeed be traveling more in the Philippines – looking forward to visiting all of the places you mention. Cheers.

    That is fantastic – both the photo essay itself and being asked to be a contributor to CNN Go!

      Thank you. 🙂 I hope this spurs a few more things on the photo front. Need some new inspirations.

    Actually – just to clarify – I didn't receive any compensation whatsoever from CNN or any other group for these photos.
