Welcome and thank you for visiting my blog!
I like being able to tell a story through an image. That's why I am a photojournalist. And I love what I do. I hope that viewing the photos on my blog and on my website, you can see that, too.
A little about me:
I am a newspaper and wedding photojournalist based in New Jersey, USA.
I currently work as the chief photographer and photo editor of the Jersey Journal, a daily newspaper in Jersey City covering the county of Hudson.
A graduate of the Eddie Adams Photography Workshop in 2002, I have received awards from the New Jersey Press Association (NJPA), the New Jersey Press Photographers Association (NJPPA) and National Press Photographers Association (NPPA).
My work has appeared in the Star-Ledger and the New York Times, among others.
I was born in San Fernando, La Union, Philippines, and grew up in Baguio City, Philippines. I immigrated to the United States in 1997.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan.
I live with my husband, photographer Max Pasion, our son, Renzo, and our cat, Nom Nom, in Bayonne, NJ.
I am available for freelance work and to photograph weddings and other events. Contact me now to book your event. Please visit my website, www.reenarose.com, to see more of my work.
This is such a beautiful shot of the skyline!
Hi Reena, I’m Keats the photographer for the Philippine Daily Inquirer. We’ve met at the Raritan Photographic Society a while back when you were the judge to our year-end competition. I bumped into you at the Liberty National GC in Bayonne about 3 years ago for the Barclays Golf Tournamento.
I was wondering if you could lead me to the location of the statue of liberty shot you did last 9/11 in Bayonne. How do I get there? Is it accessible by light rail or do I need a car? Any information you can provide will be appreciated.
