The UPCM Collective, founded in 2016, is a UP College of Medicine-based circle that was brought together because of our collective passion and interest in photography and the visual arts.

Apart from organizing informal get-togethers and photo workshops open to all in the UPCM and PGH community, the Collective has been active in covering the major events of UPCM, including Tao Rin Pala, Palarong Med, Mediscene, Medisings, and FATE. For the past 2 years, the Collective has also been providing affordable and quality photo and video documentation to the OFS (organizations, fraternities, sororities) of UPCM, and to the various departments of UP-PGH.


For Academic Year 2017-2018, these are the core members of the Collective:

  • Toby Paulino (Class 2019)
  • Mandy Esquivel (Class 2019)
  • Arden Quiambao (Class 2019)
  • Markyn Jared Kho (Class 2020)
  • Isabelle Alberto (Class 2022)
  • Janelle Uy (Class 2023)
