ASUS Philippines launches “The PixelMaster Class”

9 Months. 8 Masters. 1 Passion.


ASUS Philippines officially announces a photography class for fans who want to learn and experience more about the Zenfone 5 straight from applauded photographers.


It all began when ASUS launched the ZenFone 4 series with the tagline, “WE LOVE PHOTO”, with the idea that people lived in the moment. Carrying this philosophy to the recently launched ZenFone 5, they started the year strong with the product being sold out from within 45 minutes of release in retail stores.

The PixelMaster Master Class

In light of the great support the fans had given to the ZenFone 5, and with thousands of Filipinos with a device in hand, they decided to launch their very first PixelMaster Master Class featuring different photographers who are highly skilled in their fields such as portraiture, travel, and street, as well as well versed in ZenFone photography.

Mr. Ricky Ladia, generalist photographer extraordinaire, happily took part in the cause together with long-time co-PixelMasters, Ms. Arlene Donaire, who is versed inTravel Photography, Mr. Jasper Tejano, a master of what can be called cool and calm street and urban photography, and Ms. Dail Deri, who also joins Mr. Ladia in the ranks of generalist photography.

Of course, included in the ranks of photography legends and PixelMasters are Mr. Nicco Valenzuela, whose passion for landscape photography is like no other, Mr. Ken Go, a great practitioner of portraiture, as well as, Mr. Jay Ermitaño, who has taken mostly emotionally-packed street photos throughout his career. The last, but not least, to join the team is wedding and events photographer and filmmaker, Mr. Emir Kahn Bautista, who discovered a mobile photography experience like no other in using the ZenFone 4 in the previous year.

“The PixelMaster Master Class is designed as an intimate session, where per month, a PixelMaster will work closely with their students, acting not only as their instructors but also as their mentors.” He added, “this way, the classes move beyond a formal setup,  to a more personal approach, which is essential in developing one’s artistry.”
