2017-05-27 Self Portraits 002Hi, I’m Ray. I’m a freelance photographer and videographer. My interest in visual media began at a young age. My first experience with the digital image was at age 11 as a volunteer at Arlington Community Media, Inc, my hometown’s cable station, and I began experimenting with the still image in my early teens. When I got to college, I joined the photo section of the Tufts Daily newspaper and worked under now-Globe photographer Nicholas Pfosi, before eventually becoming section head myself. If everything goes according to plan, I’ll graduate from Tufts University with a degree in Film and Media Studies on the production track (that just means I spent a lot more time than I should have making movies when I should have been studying) in spring 2018.

As a queer person, trans man, and as someone who lives with chronic pain, it’s important to me to make still and moving images that show other LGBT+ and disabled people as we really are: beautiful, complex, vulnerable human beings. Don’t worry, I am perfectly happy to take your picture even if you don’t fall into either of those categories!

I live just outside Boston and am currently available for booking.
