Elaine De Los Santos just happened to be in the Philippines when we asked photographer Jay Tablante to source some local models for our La Union leg of the 2016 Asian Tour. She brought her laid back and relaxed style to her photo shoot on the beach while shooting with fellow Filipina beauty Cherry Kubota. Tablante is quite the opposite of Elaine. He brings high energy and rapid movement to all of his shoots. The combination was fun to watch. The end result is some really hot high end images of this beautiful girl.
The night before the shoot the models and crew had some down time and enjoyed some local food and adult beverages. Ultimately the group was challenged to try balut, a local favorite. The only takers were Elaine de los Santos and photographer John Neyrot who quickly jumped on the chance. The beach was crowded with locals, lots of them young men, that followed us everywhere to get a good look at the models. They got the opportunity take some photos with the models which made their day if not their week.
De Los Santos was born and raised in Houston Texas but moved to the Philippines to pursue music. She auditioned to join “The Voice of the Philippines”. That did not turn out as planned but she did have a positive outcome. She tells us she was blessed being discovered by a girl group called Myxx. They performed mostly in Guam during her time with them. Later, she joined the FHM team and did some commercial/print ad modeling. Living in Philippines for four years was an amazing opportunity for her.
We shot Elaine de los Santos in several swimwear lines including Mora Girls, Swim Kandy, Peach dela Creme, Meg Liz Swimwear and Peach Buns! These shots were the finishing looks of our 2016 AsianTour so we hope you enjoy them as much as we did making them for you!
