Founded in 2018 by avid content creator & technical expert, Sheldon Otto

HOW THIS HAPPENED

“I started collecting photographic equipment in 2017 and my collection grew and I needed to invest this into a passion project, and so RAW Photographic was born. I am an avid traveller and have visited 56 countries, and I managed to document each of these adventures. I loved the process of capturing the experience and bringing it to life through editing, and I got even more joy sharing the final product. 

I created this set-up to help others experience a similar process and allow them to use that to develop, share & promote their brand or their passion.”

THE RAW PHOTOGRAPHIC EXPERIENCE

HOW DID WE GET HERE?

The RAW Photographic team is led by Suzana de Pina who has significant experience managing a multi-disciplinary team. Her organisational skills keep our projects on track and she ensures that they are completed efficiently, timeously and of course, done with a lot of passion. One of her passion projects were conceptualised, created and shared with RAW Photographic – a true testament to our workflow & processes.

We work as a team and our company culture promotes continued education & skills development. Our team member, Caleb Africa, who works as our Studio Manager and Studio Director, ensures that the studio is equipped to produce the best quality content for the project. He is a pleasure to have in studio as he is growing in skill by the day, always willing to learn and is known for his contagious laugh & bubbly personality. 

We have built up our studio from grassroot levels and we now hold some world-class equipment, and we are always looking to expand our equipment and even our team. This combined with passionate and skilled professionals lead to a strong, productive & knowledgable team.
