Paulo Zalameda is a restless soul. As a professor and as an award winning Photographer, he never ceases to stop working and is always striving for success. “A lot of people tell me that I’m already succeeded, but I think I still have a lot of work to do. More accomplishments to strive for,” Professor Zalameda shared. “My success has more to do with the people around me, especially with my family. I will consider myself successful when all my kids have graduated. Then, I can rest. Then, I can die.”

For Professor Zalameda, photography was a hobby turned into a passion, then into a successful career after his work gained significant notice on social media sites. He started out doing print ads and was soon doing work for brochures and billboards in Malaysia. As a college student at FEU – East Asia College, Professor Paulo was an active student leader and a hard working Computer Engineering student. “I was also a former candidate for Mr. FEU – East Asia College way back in the year 2002. I was sincerely surprised when I won.” Professor Paulo is often called one of the premier fashion photographers of the Philippines. He has done photoshoots with a lot of local celebrities and has created ad photos for local and international companies. In 2011, he was awarded Top Brands Best Photographer of the Year. “I do this because I enjoy it. This is my passion.” He is now a professor at his alma matter, FEU – East Asia College. He will also be featured in Kabe magazine. Finally, his advice to students: “We do not succeed alone. For me my family is my success. Surround yourself with the people you care about. That’s a well-documented part of your success.” ◊
