Dennis Maxcel is a photographer from Cebu, Philippines. Taking photos of sorts made complete sense to him from a very young age. His informal studies in photography was courtesy of friends who are also passionate photographers. He never attended any seminars but watched a lot of videos to fill in the what was missing and gain more understanding about the field. One of his major influences are Scott Kelby and Ben Long who are both professional photographers in the United States. Aside from photography he is also the vocalist of “Frolic State” a Grunge-influenced band in Cebu.
