The Raw Society began in 2016, exclusively hosting on-location photography workshops, however, since then we have organically grown and evolved into something much richer and more beautiful: A community united by a passion for photography.
Now, aside from our on-location workshops, The Raw Society organises community-building events, hosts live online workshops, provides a blog with insights, inspiration and learning tools, produces projects to promote photography along with any other crazy ideas that we or our members come up with.
Hi, I’m Jorge.
My love-story with photography began at 14 when my father gave me a Nikon F3. It has been my passion ever since and my job for over 12 years.
Originally a commercial and fashion photographer, an assignment in Nepal opened up a whole new world to me that included travel and street photography.
Today I work as a professional travel and street photographer, publishing in magazines like National Geographic, working on exhibitions and books and of course, working at The Raw Society.
My role within the society is that of a mentor and teacher during our workshops and for all our members.
Hi, I’m Christelle!
Of Spanish/Swedish descent, I was born and raised in Singapore.
My curiosity of other cultures and passion for travel started at an early age, instigated by my mother and father, and a 6-month solo travel at 33 awoke my passion for photography.
With a background in business and marketing, and over 10 years of experience in advertising, I’m the organiser, social media manager and public relations person here at The Raw Society.
If you’ve ever written to us, you’ll have met me already, and if you haven’t, perhaps you should do so now! I’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
As we said, this is a community, so aside from us, The Raw Society is made up of Ambassadors and Members who continuously support us, bring ideas to the table and participate in our projects and events.

Street photographer Carlos Antonorsi was born in Caracas, Venezuela and currently lives in Miami, USA
The strong sense of aesthetics in his images, in which light, shadow and colour merge, is the result of his beginnings in Miami: a city that has strongly influenced him.
Finalist of numerous festivales, Carlos was also recently invited to give a conference in Miami about his ongoing project, “Chasing the light”.
