Rafael was a joy to work with. A true artist. He took great portraits. I didn’t go in to specifically get portraits taken but to shoot architecture. He was flexible and provided guidance on composing good shots - all while shooting portraits for the other client. He was flexible, friendly, and took amazing photos of me (might as well) and the other client. I would do this again for sure. I would even do a private architecture photography workshop if possible.

Rafael was great. I enjoyed learning about Cartegena while taking amazing pics. I don't like to stand infront of the camera much but he makes it comfortable.
