Bonjour! My name is Axel Raphanel and I'm a New York based Photographer and Assistant. 

I've moved around a bit before settling in New York, spending a lot of my youth in France then briefly moving to the Tampa bay area. I love meeting new people and finding the best light to make them shine. These days I'm turning a lot of my attention to studio work, shooting mainly at Ruby Bird Studios with controlled studio lighting. 
If you're looking to create great images, let's grab a croissant and talk about it!
