THE MAN BEHIND THE LENS...
Photographer based in Union City, CA. First and foremost a Man of God... Married for 14yrs and have 2 amazing sons.

I came up with my name R54 because I wanted to incorporate me being a MAGICIAN. The R stands for RAMON and the 54 stands for 54 cards in a deck, because when I performs MAGIC I use the 2 JOKERS..

I credit my inspiration for photography due to my love of being an ARTIST since the age of 4 and always wanting to tell a story. Received my degree in computer graphics back in 1998 and in 2008 is when I started to teach myself photography. So I have always been involved in ART... just took it to a DIFFERENT LEVEL now...

I never limit myself on what type of photography I shoot and my goal is to connect with each and every client and capture and create a moment.

SHOOTING IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY...
At the start of my career in 2008 in the Music Industry, my first opportunity was with an R&B artist Rashad Morgan who was signed to Grand Hustle at the time.

Since then I have done photos for Curtis Young - Dr. Dre's son at his Birthday Party in LA.

Behind the scenes on a W.C music video feat. ICE CUBE & YOUNG MAYLAY, behind the scenes at a Music Video for Tha Realest feat. Ray J, behind the scenes at a Paul Wall Music Video.

Back stage and on stage at ROCK the BELLS with Snoop & Wu-tang, DJ Symphony Birthday Events, E-40 Record Release Party, behind the scenes at 454 music videos and also photo shoots for them. Photographed Xzibit in Oakland CA on stage, became a personal photographer for Rapper RICHIE RICH and AP.9 of the MOB FIGAZ. Exclusive photos of TYGA & Problem when they performed in San Jose, CA.

BLESSED WITH OPPORTUNITIES IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY
Got to photograph rapper...THE GAME for his "YEAR OF THE WOLF" album cover and also for his clothing line.

Not only a client but a personal friend that I do a lot of work for is West Coast Legend & Multi-Platinum Producer EA-SKI Credits: Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Spice 1, E-40, Too Short

I continue to acquire new music clients all the time, but I'm very selective on who I work with in the MUSIC INDUSTRY.
