About Me

I am back to give this another shot. Pun intented.

Ray Cornett is a self-taught freelance professional photographer with a penchant for image purity in his work. This means his photographs are unretouched for the most part. Any retouching Ray does mimics only the techniques used in a traditional dark room and is done only in the rarest of instances. His first attempts at photography started at about the age of ten shooting anything he found interesting from flowers to people to inanimate objects and tall buildings in the downtown area of his hometown of Cincinnati, with a 1940s Kodak Brownie he purchased for two dollars at a garage sale. Then, in Ray's early teen years he moved on to his parents Yashica Electro 35 35mm camera which he commandeered and still has to this day.

  In 2001 Ray began photography on a professional level shooting models for fashion, glamour, the occasional wedding. Therefore, due to client demands for faster turn around time for the results of the shoots, his film photography fell by the wayside. However, over the last couple of years his photography has taken him back to his roots of art photography. As a result Ray is beginning to use only film for his art photography while still being able to keep clients happy by using digital equipment if required. Ray has several new series and themed projects in the works and he is working on self publishing a series of books of his photography.

  As you can see Ray's subjects of interest vary widely but the  premise of his work is - Provoke thought, get people talking, make the viewer see things in a different way and hopefully inspire others to be creative in their own way.

If interested in purchasing a print or prints from my portfolio or website please contact me directly via message or email. All prints are limited editions of either 15 or 25.

My photography consists of everything from Abstracts to Still Life, Art/Erotic Nudes.

  I am always seeking male and female models, experienced or not, all shapes, sizes and ethnicities, for gallery and art magazine submissions and personal projects such as the self published books of my photography which I am currently working on.

For compensation I offer up to 5 gallery quality prints(Usually 11x14 or 9x12) and up to 10 web-ready images.

I do require the signing of a full model release.
