Photographer Background | Photo Studio Details
Hello. I’m Rafael. I do headshots for actors, business executives, models, musicians and more. I strive to provide you a premium end-to-end experience. This includes giving you standout images to meet your photography goals. With every shoot I do, I try to deliver a premium headshot session unlike anywhere else.
How it Started
I was fortunate to turn a decades-long love for photography into a professional photography service. This started with my PR and marketing consultant work for large and start-up companies. I had a PR/marketing client years ago that gave me the chance to do their headshots. Then, another client, and so on – the rest is history, as is said.
I have other strong business experience, previously holding account executive and client management roles at two of the top 10 largest worldwide PR agencies, Ketchum and MSL. This includes having managed teams and client budgets in excess of $30,000+ monthly. I earned a BA in Journalism, California State University, Northridge, and graduated with honors. I also served honorably in the US Air Force and California Air National Guard. Please get in touch with me about how I can meet your photography needs.
- I’m insured to meet Los Angeles County photography business requirements
- I have a permit with Los Angeles County to conduct up to 10-person crew photo shoots at select county beaches and parks
At The Light Committee studio, I have several backgrounds, props, and more. So, we can do, and have done, many types of headshot sessions. Being in the heart of the DTLA arts district, the city of LA can also be used as our backdrop. I use photography equipment regarded as among the best in the industry for commercial-grade photography. This includes high-end commercial-grade Nikon DSLR D810 camera bodies. It also includes the use of many premium prime and zoom lenses.
I use premium studio lighting too that includes Profoto strobe lights and soft boxes. I have various other lighting tools to use as needed, like Profoto speedlights, reflectors, and more. When I do touch-ups, again, only the best software and equipment is used to process photos. All this combines to give you a premium photo shoot experience and results hard to find almost anywhere else.
