Griffen Raymond is a young and upcoming photographer from Gasport, NY, with his Bachelors of Fine Arts in Photography and a Minor in Business from Villa Maria College. He is a digital photographer currently specializing in architecture, landscape, and documentary photography but has widespread commercial aspirations. Mr. Raymond credits much of his current work to his wanderings as a young teen. He was fascinated with urban exploration—capturing with his lens the unique and hidden beauty in the old and forgotten. He continues to pursue that today, as often his images include derelict or disregarded items. Mr. Raymond has been published several times in the Photographer’s Forum Best of College and High School Photographers, and also in his nationally recognized college publication, SKALD. He has also participated in several local exhibitions, including CEPA Gallery’s annual member’s exhibition.
At Griffen Raymond Photography, I push beyond the standard boundaries of traditional photography and experiment with creative new ideas to produce stimulating, appealing, and captivating photos that communicate a message – whether its selling a vision, style, creative solution, or simply a beautiful image.
