Rafael, also known as Rafa, is a Brisbane-base photographer that has been working with creative digital content for a couple of years, supporting his clients to promote their business locally and to achieve a wider digital presence. Rafa style is focused on the creation of candid, appealing, charming and creative digital content. Always keeping his client's demands and needs as a compass to produce a great outcome. Since Rafa remembers he is fascinated by creating appealing images using my imagination. He believes digital content and advertising really drives him to the creative zone in terms of visual communication. Fashion shows and Runways are one of his most enjoyable styles. The event atmosphere is amazing before, during and after, with such hype energy that it is virtually impossible not to get amused by the colours, patterns, lines, and shapes. Rafa possesses experience with this style by photographing many fashions shows and runways on the last couple of the years. Therefore, he can create a vibrant style that it is suitable for emerging designers, brands, and models to showcase their products and/or skills, obtaining notoriety and attracting customers or followers.
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?
In fashion photoshoots, it is important to create a great connection with your talent. They are the face and body of your campaign. So, I do my best to make them confident and comfortable in front of my camera. I make jokes, I put some music to create a perfect mood, I am dedicated to explain my vision to them. In commercial shoots, most of my attention turns to the client. I know they have tight deadlines and high expectations. So, it is important for me to make them feel relaxed and to trust in my work.
