Philippine Tatler - - CONTRIBUTORS -

This ac­com­plished lens­man pho­tographs the Tantoco fam­ily for our cover in “A Legacy of Ex­cel­lence” (p. 192) and shoots a re­mark­able house in “A Play On Vol­ume” (p. 84)

When do you lie and how would we know?

When the truth might hurt, and only if I feel I can get away with it.

Where is your happy space?

At home in front of my com­puter do­ing a bit of Pho­to­shop, fix­ing my lat­est snap­shots of foodie places I’ve just been to with close friends.

Who has had the great­est in­flu­ence in your life?

My im­me­di­ate fam­ily and some of my clos­est friends.

Which body part do you wish you could de­tach and why?

My stom­ach. Di­et­ing would be so much eas­ier.

What’s the weird­est thing a guest has done at your house?

Some­one ate my break­fast and left money for it.

If you had to change your name, what would your new name be?

Diana Prince.

What ridicu­lous thing has some­one tricked you into believ­ing?

My mother told me I was hand­some.

What is some­thing that ev­ery­one looks stupid do­ing?

When some­one pre­tends that they are shy and hum­ble, but they are ac­tu­ally not.

What ridicu­lous thing has some­one tricked you into do­ing or believ­ing?

When some­one tells me that they are gay, but they’re re­ally straight. It hap­pens all the time.

If some­one asked to be your ap­pren­tice and learn all that you know, what would you teach them?

I will teach them every­thing that I know.

With whom would you most like to be stuck with in a lift?

Three-decade crush Kate Moss. Easy on the eye and she seems like a good laugh.

Loafers with or with­out socks?

I live in steamy Sin­ga­pore, so with is the more prac­ti­cal choice. Plus, stripy Paul Smith socks al­ways add a pleas­ant pop of colour.

What item do you never travel with­out?

A navy-blue blazer. With that, a man’s good to go for vir­tu­ally any oc­ca­sion, bar­ring black tie.

Cof­fee or tea?

Dop­pio espresso, per fa­vore.
