This is us staying forever young—or gracefully aging if you’re into counting years and such. you can likewise say this is us taking our sweet time to savor the gratifying pauses that come our way. We’ve been fortunate enough, afer all, to still be standing tall today, making history any chance we get.
Fifteen years ago, the very thought of us getting praised for our contributions to Pinoy pop culture had never really crossed our minds. Ever since issue no. 1, our only goal has always been to come out with a monthly issue worthy of our bylines. Behind the scenes, we hustle, work hard, and make full use of our hands and brute strength to deliver an issue that’s always way better than our last. We also never stop dreaming up eye-popping features (or “content” as you kids now call it) and mind-blowing concepts for cover shoots, calendars, specials, books, events, and magazine redesigns. In the process of all this finetuning, we’ve helped to either jumpstart or revitalize the careers of many a star—Patricia javier, diana zubiri, the Viva Hot Babes, Aubrey miles, Angel Locsin, Katrina Halili, Cristine Reyes, sam Pinto, jennylyn mercado, marian Rivera, and so many more accomplished actresses today.
What has kept us going through the years—aside from our wholehearted willingness to evolve with the times and learning from our mistakes—is our readiness to collaborate with only the best. In constantly partnering with both the country’s master and up-and-coming photographers, seasoned celebrity stylists, make-up artists, and open-minded managers of our chosen stars, we continue to capture and produce sensational and tasteful pictures that become events in themselves and the ultimate in #squadgoals high.
Sexiest: 15 Years of Stunning FHM Women—A Visual Celebration is the book that best punctuates our journey so far. this is us stopping time so we can all appreciate the inspirational and transformative power of photography. Feel free to relive the memories, ladies and gentlemen. But remember not to get stuck. It won’t be long before our journey starts all over again.
