Jose Raphael B. Hilario is a freelance photographer based in Manila, Philippines. He started honing his visual sense for aesthetics when he got fascinated with graphic design at the age of 13. While at university, a friend introduced him to photography. Using this medium felt more natural for him and he hasn't looked back since.
Ralph has done a wide variety of projects such as University Athletic Association of the Philippines sports coverage, elements and dividers for Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf planners, catalogue and fashion shoots for boutique brands, and nightlife coverage. His true passions, however, lie in lifestyle and travel photography.
