It was only recently when he visited the Philippines, to endorse PENSHOPPE, and to promote conservation.
I am one of the lucky 60 to receive an invitation on the Press Conference, held at The Conservatory, The Peninsula Manila, last May 23rd, 2012.
The small venue were jam packed of media personnel, guests, and fans. Here are the nicest pictures among all my shots! (hahaha.. sorry most are blurred because I just kept staring at Ian, as I could hypnotize him...)
In front of the Press Conference venue was the buffet table specifically for the VIPs and members of the media.
There were also tables for some of the guests inside The Conservatory. One thing I didn't like was the huge post covering the views of the other attendees at the back, and that's where the huge projector was standing on the left side of the picture below.
The press con was hosted by Mr. Paolo Bediones.
The event started with the showing of Mr. Ian Somerhalder's behind the scenes shoot with Penshoppe at El Nido, Palawan.
Here are the still shots of Ian Somerhalder.
I have also videoed a part of the interview:
