Ray has always been a bit different. He grew up in the Canadian Rocky Mountains raised by crazy hippie parents, Ray was homeschooled… Really he just spent a lot of time outside.
At the age of 14, he moved with his family onto a 45-foot sailboat in Trinidad, and set sail on the “Mangwana”. As they sailed around the world, Ray trained in martial arts and took plenty of photos. 40 countries and nearly 7 years later, he dried out a bit in Europe, and started shooting professionally.
As a life long athlete and explorer Ray’s primary focus is on action and adventure. He splits his time between high profile commercial work, and expeditions to amazing places with intense people. He tries to keep things a bit different, so obviously “just“ photo is not enough anymore and Ray has also started establishing himself as a moving picture director.
Ray has worked for international brands such as Adidas, Audi, BMW, Red Bull, Nikon, Siemens, Callaway Golf and Bogner and he is currently based in Munich, Germany… though you will rarely find him at home.
