Raymond has had countless noteworthy photographic assignments shooting for prestigious global clients. A few of these include shooting stills for Cisco films on Shokunin, a pre-Tokyo 2020 Olympics film. A Fortune cover try in the Caribbean on a 72 ft Hinckley sailboat for; heli-snowboarding the Alps for Conde Nast Traveller UK - hiking up the famous Col St. Bernard in the western Alps (Napoleon crossed it) in a heavy snowstorm wearing a camera pack with snowboard attached to photograph the Grand St. Bernard Monastery and Monks at the top - then snowboarding down.  He went on Safari at Jacks's Camp by jeep and plane in the Kalahari Desert in Botswana for National Geographic Traveler. He's photographed Ferran Adria - considered the world's most renowned chef; photographed a Lexus GS Hybrid at the Toyota test track near Mt. Fuji at over 150 MPH - in the cockpit; to photographing the iconoclast Anthony Bourdain and having a drink with him. 

Raymond's clients have included Cisco Films, Salesforce, Kamakura Shirts Japan, Zodia Golf Japan, Lexus cars in Japan, IBM, Belmond, Taj Hotels, Conde Nast Traveller UK, Travel + Leisure, National Geographic Traveler and Ichinomiya Kougyo Kabushiki Gaisha (steel company, Japan).

Raymond has extensive experience traveling the world, shooting in extreme conditions ranging from hi-altitude snowy conditions via helicopter and snowboard; to sailing in constantly changing tropical weather; coping with dusty, dry, hot and cold conditions on safari and enduring extremely hot and humid conditions in southeast Asia.  It's about anticipating changing weather and light; overcoming difficult situations and creating in the moment, original, authentic, magical pictures.

Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, Raymond's experience from a young age was based in travel; his family lived in Hokkaido, Japan when he was 8. His great uncle was the painter Fremont Ellis, one of the founders of the art colony in Santa Fe, New Mexico called Los Cinco Pintores (The Five Painters).

Influenced by his father who had a love of photography and was always taking portraits and travel pictures, Raymond took his first photography class at fourteen. By fifteen, fueled by his enthusiasm for skateboarding at the time, became a Pepsi Skateboard Team Photographer.  

Before Raymond was a photographer, he worked as an aerospace mechanical designer at General Electric Aircraft Engine Group, Flight Test Operations at the Mojave Air and Space Port in California. This airport is the most famous civilian flight test center in the world. Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic is based there.

For a time he considered transportation design, and studied at Art Center in California. Prolific in drawing, Raymond was invited to be in a gallery show with the Automotive Fine Arts Society at age 19. Mindful of that path as a predictable journey, he wanted an independent creative life and to travel the world.

Shortly after this time Raymond made a decisive decision to go back to his roots and be a photographer and moved to New York and assisted the legendary photographer Steven Klein and a prominent travel photographer where he learned the phenomena of photography that is New York.
