Rafael Infante

Rafael_Infante_NYC_Headshot_Portrait_Photography_DPA00b Like most new working photographers Rafael Infante started his journey with a basic point-and-shoot camera. He was always the one in the group taking pictures of everyone and everything wherever he went. Eventually, he attended courses at the School of Visual Arts and Pratt Institute and learned the fundamentals of composition, lighting and portraiture. After this he decided to pursue his passion on a professional level. Rafael has a very distinct photographic style. He likes utilizing bold colors and interesting perspectives to add a bit of surrealism and wonder to his imagery. Through manipulating light and creative posing/movement, he is able to empower his portrait and athlete clients by photographing them in a way they’ve never seen themselves before. So, whether shooting a natural landscape or a portrait, Rafael always tries to capture images in an impactful and unique approach.

He now works in New York City as a wedding, high school senior and headshot photographer with aspirations of entering the fine art market. When not shooting for clients, Rafael enjoys swimming, rock climbing, and working on his self-portrait project.

  8. “Thank you for the photography lesson. It was great to have the opportunity to practice what I’ve read before but never was able to use often enough and make them part of my photography skills. The composition lesson was great and I am sure I’ll make good use of the concept to take better pictures in the future.”

Just wanted to say thank you for your photography tips, and for being so patient and generous with your feedback that day. I really appreciate it. Although I still have a lot to learn, people like you help the learning process be a little less painful 🙂

    It was great meeting you! Take care.”
