Bio

Amsterdam3Hi, I’m Raz, an adventurer who loves to travel and document the world through photography. My range of subjects is fairly wide, but my passion lies in capturing the human element and using photography as a visual and emotional anchor.
I didn’t set out to be a photographer; it sort of just happened. A while back, a very simple camera became my tool for experimentation. Having no manual settings whatsoever, it forced me to play with composition. Fast forward 7 years, 6 camera models and 18 countries later, and things start to get serious: my work received recognition through public exhibitions and printed albums. I also got engaged in photography projects for commercial purposes.
I’m a sucker for travelling though, as well as for keeping photography as a passion and artistic expression (not necessarily a source of income). So, I plan to continue to push myself outside my comfort zone and pursue these interests around the world.

*Equipment:

Nikon D7000; Tokina 11-16mm; Nikon 35mm; Nikon 55-300mm; Raynox DCR-250 Macro Lens; Nissin Speedlight Di622; Filters (ND, Graduated, Polarizing); Canon S100+Underwater Housing (the latter is technically my wife’s toy, but I tend to monopolize on it when underwater 🙂 Thank you, honey!).

Software: Adobe Lightroom. Occasionally, photos go through Photoshop, DxO Optics Pro or Topaz Adjust. On a side-note: I prefer to keep my photos real and avoid retouching or digitally altering them. Most of them see only minor tweaking (brightness, contrast, sharpness and saturation adjustments). However, I do have a soft spot for HDR images, so those are probably the exception from the rule.
