A little reflection is always good. Looking back can’t hurt for as long as it’s not too long before you look forward again and move. The premise of this 30 min weekly TV show is all about a man rediscovering his roots in the Philippines. Paco Guerrero, an international photographer, decides to come back home to see what life here is all about. An interesting premise, and something worth taking a look at.

he premise is simple: An established international photographer, who has lived in the
U.S., Malaysia, London, and in the last decade, Spain, decides to fly back to The Philippines with his family in tow, to try and build a career in his native land. The series follows his journey as he reacquaints himself with his country and his people.
Two Stops Over is all about cutting edge photography, from the gear, the technical processes, and the intimate trade secrets behind taking them, to the production of the show, which was shot entirely on HD, using Canon’s latest EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 7D. From production to post, the show deals with the basics from a first-person perspective, giving us an entertaining, hands-on master class that’s filled with superior, powerful images.
Terno Recordings, the brainchild of Manila-based DJ Toti Dalmacion, provides the music for Two Stops Over; original Filipino music from: Popular Days, Hidden Nikki, Not Another Boy Band, The Charmes, Encounters With A Yeti, Musical O, Sleepwalk Circus, Radioactive Sago Project, and Up Dharma Down.
The show isn’t just about photography, it’s more of a journey, bringing up a debate that’s long-drawn: does the photographer change the subject or does the subject change the photographer? And it’s not just about Paco’s journey, but about the viewer’s as well. Two Stops Over aims to change our perspectives on life through the lens.
Two Stops Over will premiere this November over 2nd Avenue on Sundays, 7:30 pm
with a second run on Saturdays, 10:30 am.
