Life Behind the Lens
Rafael Avcioglu is a 24 year old photography/ creative director. He currently resides in Paris, France but travels world wide for work. He has experience in most genres of photography but specializes in portraiture and works with lots of musicians doing concert work.. Rafael enjoys shooting both digital and film formats.
"Film grounds me and helps me to stay patient. You cannot ignore the history of photography and it helps to to visualize the future of where the art form is traveling."
Rafael enjoys traveling and attacking hard assignments with creativity and innovation, approaching things from all angles. "I spend most of my time traveling from place to place, continuing to grow and figure out the world. Order and routine can kill one's spirit, and inevitably make one's life fly by in the blink of an eye. What is unfamiliar or uncomfortable, humans tend to consciously or subconsciously avoid. Most would run away; I do not. This site is just a small portion of what
my artist/life career includes."
"There are no professionals - in fact, they are far from it.
As amateur as amateur gets. But this is what makes them real - they are real, with raw candid feelings brought to life by the cause and effect of what they encounter and endure within every day. Though controversial issues are a matter
of opinion that often will be countered, the images displayed and the models relaying the messages are
a definitive projection of the world in which we live."
