Rafael has been providing photographic services for: 1. aspiring models that need to build up a strong portfolio to present to model agencies; 2. portraits for people who wants to create a visual memory of themselves; 3. for fashion designers, creating images for social media, websites and online stores; 4. restaurants who want to refresh their menu image gallery.
I love to put people together. To freeze a brief moment in something eternal through an image. I love to create memories to my clients that I hope will last a long time.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
My last four fashion editorial and portrait photoshoot ended up being accepted for publication, including international magazines in New York and Paris. It is quite special for me to see my client's reaction when they realise they can produce high-quality content at the level. And I am talking about regular people that are not signed models. They are a model aspiring or just someone that is seeking for a beautiful portrait.

A fun fact about this photographer
I am a die-hard fan of Marvel Studios movies. I know that I am a bit too old for superheroes movies, but I can not resist. Comic books were a big part of my childhood, so I feel nostalgic with those movies.
