My name is Beverly Claire. I bought my first film SLR camera when I was in college in the late 1990’s. My main goal was to shoot Grand Sumo tournaments in Nagoya, Japan. I was a shrieking, screaming, fainting sumo fan back then
Arming myself with a 300mm lens, an unwieldy tripod and my trusty SLR, I shot dozens and dozens of rolls of film. Of sumo dudes. Even the ones I didn’t really like. It was an amazing feeling freezing movement and capturing expressions and preserving them on film, for a lifetime of memories. That started my love affair with photography.
After graduation, I became a corporate workhorse, practically living in the office and doing non-stop, sleepless 72-hour workdays. I dropped all hobbies and dedicated my entire life to my IT job. My camera and lenses gathered dust. I didn’t even think of taking up photography again until, a few years ago, I attended my niece’s wedding. The photos I took with a low-MP point-&-shoot camera in a dimly lit room were terribly disappointing. I vowed to not make the same mistake again. I went on to arm myself with a decent DSLR and am back in “shooting everything that moves (or not)” mode.
I left the Philippines in early 1997. I have since lived and worked in Japan. Yokohama, a bay city near Tokyo, is the place my husband and I call home.
I love to do traditional painting as well as digital illustration.
I also work as a 3D visualization artist. I enjoy interior decoration and product design. For me, traveling is not merely a want but a need, because visiting different places and meeting new people truly help expand one’s horizons. Next to painting I enjoy digital graphic design and making personalized gifts. I’m a self-taught lots-o’-things, so one day I decided to teach myself how to swim.
