Photography class at 7748 feet above the sea level

The mystery and grandeur of Mount Pulag through the kids’ eyes. That is what Juan Portrait now wants to partake with the rest of the nation when it hosts the works of twenty pupils of the Mount Pulag Primary School in Benguet who, last July, attended their photography program.
It was last July when the participating school kids, between 4th and 6th grades learned the basics of photography in a classroom that was 7 748 feet above sea level, in one of the most distinct biodiversity in the country these days.
Mount Pulag is the 3rd highest mountain in Philippines. It is the highest peak in Luzon. A part of Mount Pulag is assigned as a National Park hosting 528 documented plant species. Endangered and threatened animal species could still be seen in mountain forests such as Giant Bushy Tailed Cloud Rat, the Long Haired Fruit Bat, the Philippine Deer, the Koch pitta bird and Dwarf cloud rat.
The mentors of photography were from Juan Portrait, a non-profit community of writers, photographers, professionals, artists as well as other volunteers attached by their collective drive to use their skills to repay to communities across the nation. One of their important programs is Community Frames.
The Mount Pulag workshop mentors – Geloy Maligaya, Geric Cruz, Jake Verzosa and Alex Constantino – did not restrain the photography lessons in classrooms. They brought the kids to Mount Pulag summit so that they can capture and appreciate the gift of nature in a frame.
