Rafael Medina Adalfio


I began photography in 2005 at the Art Institute Martin Tovar & Tovar; I was them apprenticed to Oswaldo Blanco with whom I spent the following two years exploring B&W traditional photography in everyday life. 

Between 2011 and 2013 I honed my technical and creative skills whilst studying the MA Filmmaking at the London Film School, primarily focusing on working as a Cinematographer. I contributed to 20+ short films and also served as the Head of the LFS Photographic Society.

When making my films I like to employ different and creative ways of using light, often unconventionally and based on my own observations of life. My cinematography includes carefully planned off-centred subjects and unusual angles. I have a particular passion for B&W film, particularly on celluloid, but am also excited by the vast possibilities of digital formats. I am currently working on several projects as either Cinematographer or Producer.
