RAW Photographic Studios

Jan 17th, 2017

In April of 2015 one of my biggest dreams as a photographer had finally come true! My brand new studio, RAW Photographic Studios.

For years I had bounced around from different studios and not one of them could come close in comparison to RAW.  Nothing was ever good enough.  Whether there wasn’t enough space, limited on sets/themes, undesirable location, no cyclorama wall, etc., etc. My ultimate goal was to provide not only a great studio for myself, but a place where I can house multiple photographers and their businesses.  I also had a vision of providing a space for photographers that only needed studio time on an hourly basis.  RAW Photographic does both of these and much more!

Doing all of this on my own sounded nice, but I knew going into it that I would need some help.   So I decided it would be best to bring on a team to help me bring this dream to a reality.  Let me introduce the co-owners: Tony Clapp, Roger Williams, Joe Rotruck, and Tyler Martin. These four guys are not just awesome photographers, but they also have incredible skills in other areas in which they have brought to the table to help RAW Photographic come to life.  Lets not forget about Jen (resident photographer) and Brian Swedhin for their awesome skills in demolition and construction.

Take a look below and see what we’ve done and what RAW has to offer!
