My Passion My Work

Two years ago, my daughter had a major project for her Sibika Subject. She and her best friend needed to come up with a presentation where they needed to dance to Singkil. Being the always supportive mom that I was, I tried to find a way for my daughter to come up with a presentation that would not require us to bring a whole dance troupe or spend an arm and a leg to do this.

While surfing thru the internet, I suddenly thought of an idea. Maybe Sam could just dance to it and a video of her and her best friend could be superimposed onto a video of an existing Singkil Dance. It seemed easy enough for me. But then reality set in and I didn’t know how I was going to execute this. Then I bumped into a Facebook post of Dexter Gamboa. He was a friend in FB because he was my school mate in HS. He posted some of his work at that time as a freelance photographer and videographer! He was an answered prayer. To make a very long story short – Sam and her partner for this project passed with flying colors! Thanks to Tito Dexter Gamboa’s skillful photo/video and editing. After several months, Dexter came onboard to help Mommy Guide Inc now as our resident photographer / videographer / editor.

Technical Background

Dexter is a Development Communication graduate from the University of the Philippines at Los Baños. His friend and him used to make homemade MTV’s of their favorite songs back in college and short video clips of anything they could think of. During their friends’ and various family events he was always asked to shoot the video. “I think that’s how I started my love of taking videos. When I learned Non-linear video editing or digital editing back in 2003, I worked as video editor in various photo and video studios. When I learned the ropes of the business, I decided to be a full time freelance videographer and video editor in 2006,” Dexter explains.

His client base increased slowly but surely through word of mouth. An example of his long time client is World Vision Philippines. Dexter says that he has been shooting and editing videos for them since 2006 in many of their projects until the present. He is currently one of their video consultants and produce videos for them in many of their major events like the 12 Hour Famine and community visits of famous celebrities and sponsors and many others. Later on in 2013, he also added Photography to his skills.

He is also currently a volunteer at the Korean Cultural Center under the Korean Embassy for more than a year now. He volunteers in many of their events for their goal to share their culture and have friendly relations with our fellow Filipinos. He is currently their main photographer in many of their major events like the Seollal or the Korean Lunar New Year and The East Asia Week held at the University of Asia and the Pacific this February.
