AFTERTHOUGHT: The Spirituality of Photography, The Journey Within
RemZamora

I have been to many places, taking photographs of its people and everything that is happening in the area. As a photojournalist, it is my job to document people's lives thru pictures. 

I want to record history. I want to be there when things happen. I want to be part of history. Thru what I see via the viewfinder of my camera. 

I want change to happen. Thru the photos I make. I want the photos to affect people. To better their lives. 

This is what I see. This is my angle. This is me.

I want people to move. To act. As their lives are documented thru this visual medium.

But sometimes I ask when do I stop pressing the shutter button?  

Are we really making changes that can ripple thru other people's lives? 

When do I stop taking photos and begin to be part of the photo? Or am I already part of it?

With the advent and ubiquitousness of digital photography, anyone can feel and act like a photographer. But I dare ask you what your purpose is? I am no holier than thou. This question I ask myself many times.

After all I still believe that I am only a messenger. That the people in front of the camera are the most important element compared to those behind it. That your story is more important than mine.

Are we making changes? 

Photojournalism is a personal journey for me. 

Maybe I have been asking the wrong question all this time. Every picture created is an encounter with a stranger. For thru this that I meet all of you. 

A new experience. 

Happiness 

Anger 

Rage

Sadness 

Jealousy 

Hatred

Life 

Death

Sorrow

Bliss

Love

Hope

For it is thru taking photographs of other people that I have been making changes. To myself. That every release of the shutter, a new picture is created also of me. 

We leave a shadow to the places and people we have shot. But they leave and reflect more of the light to us.

Introduction
REM ZAMORA is a Philippine photojournalist based in Makati City. He currently works for the Philippine Daily Inquirer as Photo Editor.

Zamora's first foray into photojournalism was at the University of the Philippines-Diliman, where he served as staff photographer and Graphics Editor for the weekly student publication, the Philippine Collegian. He studied Business Administration and Accountancy and briefly worked as an accountant for Sycip, Gorres and Velayo after graduating from UP in 2001.

Zamora ventured full-time into news photography in 2003, when he joined the Manila Times as a photo correspondent. The following year, he started working for the Philippine Daily Inquirer as a staff photographer, covering major national beats and emerging issues until 2011. His work as a young photojournalist was cited as the Best News Photo in the 2006 Catholic Mass Media Awards and the Best Human Interest Photo and Best News Photo in the Louie R. Prieto Awards for 2006 and 2005, respectively.

By 2006, Zamora distinguished himself in regional competitions, winning the Gold Prize in the first Asia Press Photo Awards organized by the Asia News Network and the China Daily in 2006; a Silver Award for General News Photo and Best News Photographer at the 2007 IFR Asia Media Awards; and an Honorable Mention in News Photography from the Society of Publishers in Asia Awards in 2008.

He left Philippine Daily Inquirer in 2011 and later joined ABS-CBN News Online as staff photographer doing documentary and in-depth photo stories for three years.

In 2013 he received ABS-CBN's 20/20 Excellence Award which recognizes 20 people in ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs who exhibit skills, core values, standards and ethics prized by the division.

Zamora came back to work for the Philippine Daily Inquirer in 2014, this time leading its photo department.

He believes that everyone has a story to tell and he hopes to capture these stories in images.
