Funtivity: Frank 151 Shoot

To politely interrupt the supposed back to back posts of our Legaspi-Donsol trip, I just wanted to post about something we've been so excited to share with you: The Frank 151 shoot.

Frank 151 is a free pocket-sized quarterly publication based in New York. Every chapter of the Frank Book is helmed by a special Guest Curator and focuses on a unique editorial theme. For example, their issue about Jamaica was curated by the Marley brothers while their issue about the Love Revolution was headed by Lenny Kravitz. In short, it's a pretty kickass publication. So imagine our excitement when our good friend Dane told us that Frank 151 was doing an issue of the Philippines and was featuring our beloved island!

Some of us at Isla Boheme along with other lovely island girls were lucky to be part of the shoot, to represent the island and show the world what it's like to live in paradise. Although we were nervous at first about "posing and stuff" the team was great. They made sure that we were ourselves and that the shoot was as natural as it should be. In the end, it was a fun couple of days which also reminded us how we are surrounded by so much beauty and equally beautiful people.

Below are some shots from behind the scenes. The issue about the Philippines comes out in June. If you are in New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Seoul, Sydney, Johannesburg, London, Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, Amsterdam, or Copenhagen, then you might spot a copy. :)
