Adjust Your Set, Tom Dixon, The British Journal of Photography, Channel 4 News, Childsdraw, UAL, AFROPUNK.
His film When The Pile Is Crooked... premiered at the Portobello Film Festival in 2014 and gained a nomination for Best Drama.
From DV cameras, iPhones, DSLRs, and cine cameras, Raphael enjoys collaborating and exploring shooting styles to tell narrative stories.
Working with narratives and locations that are familiar to most people (school, bedrooms, high streets), Raphael is interested in hacking how he can convey the inner monologue of the character using image systems to show everything the character isn’t saying at that moment.
Raphael’s work pans various formats, including branded work for Channel 4, Adjust Your Set, and The British Journal of Photography.
The summer of 2020 sees Raphael’s feature film cinematography debut with Doll Factory, where he also served as the executive producer through his production company Asare Simms
