Armando Rafael is a Brooklyn based photographer and studio-owner specializing in food, travel and intimate interiors.

His relationship with the farmers and craftsmen of his family’s native Portugal are his inspiration to strive in capturing the intense beauty and physicality of the natural world. Each image is an attempt to connect the viewer with each of our sense experiences in order to bring the subject to full expression.

Through his collaboration with clients such as the Food Network, Martha Stewart, Travel & Leisure, and Weight Watchers, to name a few, Armando consistently brings his technical expertise, practical knowledge, and creative insight to each and every project.
