About Starscape Studios
Hi, I’m Kimmi.
I’m the photographer behind Starscape Studios. It has been a lifelong passion of mine to photograph moments. There’s something incredibly special about capturing the present moment as a story for years and generations to come.
I’ve always adored the way the light would shine through the leaves and the vivid colors of sunset catching on the clouds above. It’s what first got me to pick up a camera when I was very young, using up rolls of my father’s film and developing handfuls of ocean pictures and blurry trees.
Throughout the years, I’ve switched between film and digital cameras, always looking for a way to capture and convey the emotions that nature makes me feel.
Born and raised in the Philippines, I love to explore the outdoors and become immersed in different landscapes. I’m passionate about living adventurously and connecting deeply with others on a global scale.
Community, culture, and conservation are important to me; I believe that we all have a responsibility to preserve natural habitats and wild lands for future generations to thrive.
There was a time when I packed up all my belongings into a backpack and left on a one-way ticket to explore the world. Living on the road for months, staying at youth hostels and campgrounds and photographing several National Parks along the way. I would spend hours simply enjoying a field of flowers or a mountain view. Nothing else existed then – just me, nature, and my camera. That experience taught me to slow down, and I learned to see the world simply as it was, moment by moment.
It was then that I realized that there is so much natural beauty that exists in this world, and my purpose is to share these magical moments of life with others. I wanted to capture special moments with other people to remember and look back upon with fondness for years.
That was the beginning of the idea for Starscape Studios.
During my travels, I found myself using my camera to slow down time and process the chaos of movement and events around me. Photography has given me the ability to reflect on life and taught me to find beauty in every scene. I learned to recognize and appreciate what makes each of us unique and to celebrate these precious moments of life that we share.
I am honored to walk alongside you, to capture the moments of grace and authenticity that are often fleeting and unseen, and to gift you a collection of genuine, artistic, and vibrant images that celebrate the essence of this special time of your life.
I am excited to share this experience with you.
Thank you for choosing me to be your photographer.
