About Me


-  Hello; I am Rafael; ( you can call me by my name or last name, or G, Raf, Turtle), A passionate artis-photographer relocated to Manlius N.Y. after retiring from serving with our Nation`s finest (U.S. Army). Born and raised in Puerto Rico with a passion for photography and the arts in general who has used photography as a resiliency method or “hobby” for a time, and now looking forward to become more serious about it, learn more/gain experience, be part or create a network with models, photographers and photo retouchers;  and eventually become a professional in the near future.

I have inclined to candid/street photography style (since one never knows what lies ahead on any day in any environment and how people react to the simple pleasures of life). I have had the pleasure of working with modes with different range of experience and always fascinated with photographing the human body since it is truly a work of art. I don`t consider my work as “top of the line” but I always try my best to get the close to the perfect shot and also willing to work with models from little - no experience to professional; who can help me expand my photography vision and create my portfolio in any way, shape or form and also get some networking.

- I'm interested on shooting almost anything; from figure studies, artistic nudes ( based on the work of Andrew Einhorn, which looks natural) to portraits, glamour to fashion, maternity to swimwear; etc (No weddings). I am more inclined to candid/street photography ( basically work around the model and shoot what they are doing in a natural environment) in other words I don't like posing my models. So if you have some ideas or themes of your own bring them up so something can be arranged; so think ahead what you want. I also work with natural light and models with little to moderate make-up

- I would work for TFP/TFCD; but I`m willing to $ a reasonable fee to the model for their service/time, gas; etc.

- Escort/chaperones: I have no issues if you want to bring one but no boyfriends/husbands/children; If you`re a female and youre a little concerned on shooting alone with me then bring a best friend, sister, cousin or mother. Also don`t let them ruin the shoot by being the good idea faerie; They are there for your support and help, not to direct the shoot.
- Currently located in Lacey, Washington and dont have a problem getting to your prefered location (up to 100 mi from my location for now until I get a good feel of the area).

- Due to my job, Saturdays or long holiday wknds are the best days to do a meet/greet or shoots.

- I post all of my edited work here

-- Yes, the profile photo is me.
