Val Ponciano was born and raised in the Philippines before heading overseas to America. He held his very first film camera at the young age of five, taking pictures of every little thing he could set his eyes on and used up film like it was candy. He has been shooting nonstop ever since then.
Val graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing from the College of
Mount St. Vincent. With one accomplishment down, he continued on with
his love of photography, attending photography events and classes whenever it was available. Driven and inspired by the works of photographers such as Eric William Curry, Peter Hurley, and Chase Jarvis, Val went on to create wonderful,
creative, and fashionable photos for everyone in the world to see.
Val is currently based in New York City and is still continually pressing the shutter button on his camera. He always follows the one philosophy that has gotten him so far in his career and in life: "No matter what you do, have fun with it!"
