Since Ramuel was in elementary school, he has been taking pictures. He started using disposable film cameras to capture moments of family life. Then bought his first digital point in high school. Until he finally could purchase his first DSLR in college. From there, his friends took notice of his artistic eye and began to request photo taken of them by him. Since then, he's been experimenting with lighting techniques, playing with equipment, and learning as much as he can about the art form he loves.
I love meeting new people, going new places, and seeing new stories unfold. I love being able to capture someone's personality and being able to show it back to them in a way they didn't expect.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done portraits, families, weddings, events, food, dance, behind the scenes on productions, and more. I make them special by being myself and using my creative eye. I always do research before hand to see what tools I can use in my arsenal to tell the story most creatively and effectively.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I've been published in multiple magazines such as Feroce, Covos, Opium Red, Make Sense, Makeda, and was featured on the cover of From Russia With Love for June 2021.
