To me photography is about about capturing beauty. There is a lot of ugliness in the world and human nature seems drawn to it, but the beauty is often ignored.
You can see more of my work at www.raycoylephoto.com
Emotion is what I shoot. When people look at my nature photos, they tell me the stories of their lives that those photos elicit. When shooting people, I want to capture the look that all their friends will recognize. Over time everything changes, but through photography we can reflect the emotion of the present for our lives and our legacy.
I am looking primarily for paid assignments. Having said that I will shoot TF by invitation. If you think you have something to offer, let me know and we''ll talk.
My work seems to be gravitating more towards fashion, although I'd like to get into boudoir and glamour, So if you'd like to pursue those styles, let me know and we can arrange a shoot.
My real passion is cosmetic photography. If you have flawless (or "photoshopable") skin and are ready for extreme close-ups message me and I wont refuse.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with you! Your professionalism and perfectionism made the experience enjoyable from start to finish. I'm happy that we were able to work so well together in accomplishing both our artistic goals.
I had so much fun with the shoot today! You are a great photographer and made me and my mom both feel comfortable and the shoot went really well. I would definitely recommend you to my friends or any one who is interested in modeling. You didn't give up on that pose we tried and you are very patient, but it pays off because the work comes out great!

It was such a pleasure to work with you yesterday! I enjoyed many things about our shoot, one of them that you are not a "spray and pray" kind of photographer!
