Hey everyone! It’s me, Ashton Boni, a certified backpacker who wants to see every inch of this world and had so far been to over 20 countries as far as I can reckon. I literally love to get lost in a country and I find pleasure taking pictures which I have consistently done for 13 glorious years. I love photographing almost everything especially people. I can just sit in one nook of the café all-day long and watch people.
I’m a fun-loving person and utterly can’t last a day without my dose of a good laugh. I am also a foodie who relishes the cooking of my mother. Undoubtedly, she’s the best cook I know. I too, have my share of culinary prowess and can cook 3 dishes but not more than that (LOL). Most of the time, you’ll find me dining out and asking the waiter to pick the dish for me, because I love food surprises! I also love sipping a great cup of Joe, especially wee in the morning to fuel my day.
I have an advocacy towards clean and healthy living so I absolutely don’t gamble, smoke and do drugs and I only drink (Mojito, to be exact) when I’m in another country. During my recent trip back home, in Palawan, I discovered my penchant for karaoke.
I’m the proud founder of Maganda Filipino. An E-Magazine dedicated to the Rediscovery of the Philippines. I also have a feature article about me, my work, and history in (read it if you want) Photo Technique Magazine
I am also Ashton, the couch potato. I’m nocturnal so I love pulling an all-nighter watching movies and reruns of my favorite TV shows, Breaking Bad and 30 Rock. As an artist, I have my fascination not only to photography but also to musical theater. Yet photography & the betterment of my craft remains my first love and what keeps me preoccupied most of the time. Hmmm..so, this is me in a nutshell.
