LG Philippines partnered with celebrated Filipino photographer Niccolo Cosme in a project called “See the Greatness in You,” inviting everyone to unleash their inner greatness. The self-professed “dream-enabler” hopes to inspire children from his hometown to strive for education and pursue their dreams.
In 2007, Cosme started Project Headshot Clinic where he shoots profile photos of friends and celebrities for free to promote awareness and causes that are significant to him. As a photographer, he is attached to immortalizing moments and memories through photographs and “See the Greatness in You” is just one of the many projects that he is working on.
He shared that his mother opens her home in Kawit, Cavite to children every summer and offer refresher classes before the school year starts. Through generous donations from close families and friends, Cosme’s mom were able to provide new school supplies to these children by the end of the program so they will be motivated and eager to start every school year right.
Last May 23, Cosme and his team went to Aguinaldo Shrine and set up their makeshift studio. Without a DSLR camera, the celebrated photographer used only the LG G4 for the studio shoot. The smartphone’s built-in expert mode allowed Cosme to adjust the settings such as shutter speed, exposure, aperture, white balance levels just as he would with a standard DSLR camera. In the end, he was really impressed with how easy it was to use the LG G4 and the quality of the photos.
That day, Cosme shot portraits of around fifty students in location and on May 25, he returned with his team to Kawit, Cavite and gave back each child their very own portraits.The portraits were displayed in the gallery that was revealed to public after the grand launch of LG G4 in the Solaire Theater last April 28.
