Including brand new frames by photographer Douglas Diaz never-seen-before stunning shots from Cuban-American Rafael Rey.
Defining like a great experience, Rafael comments via email, “My experience with Douglas was great! Shooting with him was effortless and we had a really fun time.”
Shooting at Key Biscayne, Florida, Rafael looks better than ever, since the last spread we published back in 2016.
“I believe that when you consider your work to be fun and enjoyable that you bring out your best results, and Douglas and I both had that mindset.”Rafael Rey
Key Biscayne lies south of Miami Beach and east of Miami.
The village is connected to Miami via the Rickenbacker Causeway, originally built in 1947. Because of its low elevation and direct exposure to the Atlantic Ocean, it is usually among the first Miami areas to be evacuated before an oncoming hurricane.
Rafael did a marvelous work here, he’s involving 100% when is about his passional work.
He takes serious about, everything has changed since our last meeting in 2016. He looks more built, oh just look at those six-pack and full beard on him.
