Julie Pearl Apostol Postigo, who is better known by her screen name Julie Vega (May 21, 1968 – May 6, 1985), was a popular and well-loved Filipino movie and television actress and singer. Her sudden death at the tender age of 16 triggered a massive outpouring of nationwide grief that is still vividly remembered by Filipino showbiz fans after several years. --Wikipedia
Sometime in March 1984, I had this great and wonderful opportunity of photographing Ms. Vega, upon the request of her parents. They'll be needing the pictures for their various press releases. Of course, I obliged. Its a good break and something not to be missed! (That time, my career path was in the field of photography- setting up my own studio or a photo processing shop, but that didn't push thru as I ventured into a different field). I asked my friends from my group, Kameradare Camera Club to join and assist me, since I still don't have any experience photographing celebrities and this was my first time. That experience was memorable and I want to share some of these photos.
