Magic Liwanag is a Manila-based freelance photographer, and a rising star in the concert photography circuit. Initially self-schooled in the art, he has become a consummate professional, covering international acts such as Jennifer Lopez, Maroon 5, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Incubus, Justin Bieber, Justin Timberlake, and Snow Patrol. His works have been published in magazines and newspapers, particularly the country’s biggest dailies: The Philippine Star, The Philippine Daily Inquirer, and the Manila Bulletin.
He believes in jumping into the thick of a screaming crowd to get the shot. The result: Evocative concert photos, with impeccable composition, color, and tone–taken at That Perfect Instant. Nothing less than Magic.
