Raymond was born and raised in Southern California (West Covina). His love of art was fostered by days spent driving around Downtown Los Angeles with his family and seeing all the graffiti art that covers so much of the city. Raymond’s parents bought him his first camera when he was still in high school and he spent a lot of his time skateboarding around LA and taking photos of all the street art.
Raymond has always liked cars, but his passion for automotive photography really bloomed when he started visiting Palm Springs and being surrounded by the classic car culture out there. Classic Porsches are one of his favorites and photographing them really got him into automotive photography.
Outside of work, Raymond enjoys spending time with his girlfriend and traveling off the beaten path. He said he loves finding places with no cell service and enjoying the peace that comes with it.
