Hello

My name is Ray. I’m a Vancouver-based photographer, videographer, and graphic designer. I have additional experience with social media marketing, as well as business, project, and client management. I currently own a lifestyle clothing and accessory brand, called Township Supply Co., which I treat as a fun side project. I am currently looking for a position with a major brand but open to p/t and freelance work.

I began shooting digital photography, with a professional grade DSLR camera, in fall 2008. From there, I’ve shot a variety of secular events with the most notable of those being Berlin Fashion Week for dazeddigital.com (Dazed & Confused Magazine). I've been featured in two Vancouver gallery exhibitions and I've had the privilege of creating digital content for a few corporate brands. I recently took a short stint at running my own content creation and social media marketing agency, called Campfire Media, but decided to close it (04.06.2019). I created all of the branding for this agency, including the logo, graphics, and I performed all of the photography and video production, as well as website updates. I also formerly did all of the Instagram and Facebook posts and I managed multiple related clients.

I began experimenting with videography during my teenage years and later began making YouTube videos around 2012. In those days I used a point & shoot camera, and I edited my videos in iMovie. Today, I work with pricier equipment and I edit in Adobe Premiere.
