    'Kodaker' was our funny old slang for a photographer back when it was the popular brand.

    I am a proud Filipina from Davao City (Dabawenya). I write a column for two newspapers, shoot and write for travel magazines, blogs, and other commissioned projects. My crazy adventures turned me into a photographer. I am also a nutcase artist who paints and draws caricatures.

    As a solo traveler, I have strange habits of hoarding funny signs, Asian horror films, weird artifacts and 80s retro memorabilia. This blog is the Scene Stealer, because I quietly capture candid scenes of humanity and surreal visions of nature (living in a magical world despite hard times).

    As a photojournalist, I love aerial, travel and culture in exploring destinations. Now a semi-retired TV host, I endorse products on the side and do charity works. This blog features my artistic journey, with inspirational quotes. My published articles are in another blog.

    All photos are mine unless otherwise stated. I only wish for respect, permission and courtesy in photo credits. Thank you.

Here's a hot drink (infused rhum with chili peppers and cacao) to @huckleberry_davao. =) On the road to Aliwagwag Falls in Cateel, Davao Oriental,  riding a habalhabal (motorcycle) back in 2011. If you want to view my shots before and after Typhoon Pablo (Bopha) please feel free to visit www.pbase.com/jojie_alcantara. My cover photo in Philippine Airlines' Mabuhay Magazine (May 2011 issue): aerial shot of an active Mt. Mayon in Legazpi, Albay Province from a helicopter. The volcano is known not only for its volatile beauty but also for its near perfect cone. #VisitPhilippines2015 #itsmorefuninthephilippines The stunning cascades of Aliwagwag Falls in Cateel,  Davao Oriental before it was hit by Typhoon Pablo (Bopha) few years back. Today, it has recovered from damages and has restored much of its grandeur. The guy in red is my habalhabal (motorcycle) driver making wee wee. Just like going back to nature. :D One of my favorites...Pakfry Tuna special at Palovince Place here in Davao. Lami kaayo!
