HPN, Manila - Following efforts to sustain PN initiatives in furthering professionalization of Command public affairs capabilities, the Naval Public Affairs Office has recognized the growing need to enhance the ability of Philippine Navy photographers to cover various Command and Unit engagements. As such, it was deemed necessary to conduct a formal training in VIP photography for PN photographers to empower Navy photogs with the skills and knowledge in covering Command high-profile engagements and other activities that are viewed as important to further PN STRATCOM efforts for its stakeholders. This activity was purposed not only to improve PN capability for posterity documentation, but to promote better public information capabilities through dissemination of well-covered and favorably interpretative photographs of Command activities involving various stakeholders for their better consumption and awareness of PN activities.

The one-day VIP Photography Training Seminar for PN Photographers was held at the Headquarters Philippine Navy Multi-Purpose Hall in Roxas Boulevard, Manila last June 15, 2012. It involved a lineup of notable instructors that included Mr Gil Nartia, Presidential Close-in Photographer from Malacanan (First Photo), former Presidential Photographer (President Corazon Aquino) and current Photo Editor Mr. Val Rodriguez (Second Photo) and Field Photojournalist Jonjon Vicencio both of the Philippine Star, and AFP Chief of Staff Photographer SSgt Gildo M Cabalo PA (Third Photo) of the AFP Public Affairs Office. This lineup covered instructions on group and individual VIP coverage from the media, government-civilian and military perspectives.

The seminar benefitted a total of twenty (20) PN photographers from NPAO, the Phil Fleet, the Philippine Marine Corps, the Naval Construction Brigade, naval Reserve Command, Naval Education and Training Command, and the PN Civil-Military Operations Group (Fourth Photo) to include the photographers and public affairs practitioners of the 6 Naval Forces from La Union, Albay, palawan, Cebu, Zamboanga City, and Davao who joined the seminar via video-teleconferencing system.

The course is not a basic or introductory photography course and is especially designed for professional and knowledgeable photographers who normally cover Command and Unit activities.
