Text/Call me at 650-271-1235 to discuss your next project. Rafael was born and raised in Cuba with a passion for Cinematography and for creating beautiful images that reflect his culture.
I believe that the partnership of creative minds can achieve great things. My job is to bring your vision to life. As a freelance cinematographer, this means immersing myself quickly in a project and working closely with you to bring that project to life.
To tell a story, every detail matters. Beauty, passion, and life reside in these details. Capturing the sleek design of new technology, the gentle sway of a dancer's hips, the way a smile dances on a child’s face- this is what drives me. Capturing movement. Capturing beauty. Harnessing images that inspire.
I have been in the industry since 2007.
