Raoul Ortega is a storyteller, educator and visual artist through the disciplines of photography and graphic design. The theory and principles of Jazz inspire him to nourish relationships and compositions that not only riff and vibe well with his surroundings or with collaborators but sometimes break the molds of conventional standards. Raoul thrives to evoke emotion, trigger nostalgia and capture the essence of the moments, subjects or people in their most natural and simplest states.

Some of his favorite photography includes:
• portraiture
• events
• weddings
• creative
• lifestyle
• food
• product
• editorial
• photo documentary
• architectural
