CZARRO ANN INFANTE DE GUZMAN Czarro Ann Infante-de Guzman was working asan Architect in an architectural and structural firm (Al Falasi & Partners Architects and Engineers) in Dubai, before deciding to become a full time mom to her daughter, Jaelen.  “Being a plain housewife is hard yet fulfilling. Sometimes I manage to do freelance architectural work at home,” shared Infante-de Guzman. Infante-de Guzman, who says her sense of aesthetics was largely influenced by her father, started photography in 2010 without attending any formal photography course or workshop. She shares, “My father is an artist. He is the one who influenced and trained me, encouraging me to compete in several drawing contests in our province. Now, my camera is my tool for expressing my love and passion for art.” MAYNARD DELA CRUZ Maynard Dela Cruz  is a freelance photographer  based in Abu Dhabi.
