At the young age of 24, Paelo Pedrajas' works have been featured in different local magazines - covers and spreads, worked with top models and designers in the country, and been official photographer numerous times for huge events like the Philippine Fashion Week and Fashion Design Alliance Manila's December 2011 exhibition and show.
His online portfolio, http://paelopedrajas.co.cc, and his official website, http://cargocollective.com/paeped, feature his works from magazines and events. Minimalist and simple, both websites showcase of his artistry without the effort of connecting with his subjects.
A goodlooking guy in his own right, he should be in front of the camera, but he works his magic behind it instead. He could cross-over from one style of photography to another as swift and comfortable as could be.
He appears on the May 2012 issue of GARAGE Magazine (grab a copy!):
Paelo Pedrajas likes calling himself a bum. But you look at his extensive portfolio of fashion editorials in countless magazines and news publications and you see a bum who knows his way with the lensPedrajas graduated with an Advertising Arts degree from the University of Santo Tomas. His style-traversing raw to high street to glamour photography which one may find subversive - has brought him to work closely with the Philippine Fashion Week team for S/S 2012 and become a part of the VISIONS: Beauty and Style Exhibition in 2010. He has also worked on a December 2011 Exhibition and show of the Fashion Designers Alliance Manila.If he’s not taking photos for a living, you might catch him snapping photographs of the setting sun on his latest backpacking trip to the beach or the mountains or maybe doing and crossing out items on his bucketlist of adventures.- GARAGE Magazine, MAY 2012

Paelo is a personal friend, who I met when we were still in UST. He doesn't know yet that I'd be writing and promoting him here in my blog and my other social media (but of course he will be seeing this once published). I'm not doing this because of friendship, but because I truly believe in what this guy can bring. His works amaze me everytime. The way you are going to see things through his lens are truly captivating.
