Etobicoke / Toronto Professional Photographer

My name is Raph Nogal and I'm a professional photographer in Etobicoke, Mississauga, Toronto, and the GTA. I'm also known as an Etobicoke photographer as I live in the South Etobicoke area of the GTA. My photography studio is also located in South Etobicoke, close to the Mississauga and Toronto boarder. I work as a headshot photographer, event photographer, wedding photographer, family photographer, and product photographer in Toronto and the surrounding areas, as well as worldwide. I have been a professional photographer since 2009 and I'm considered to have a well-rounded portfolio of work - providing fresh and interesting images to my clients.


As an industry leader, I'm very excited to be affiliated with Sony Canada and proud to be an official ambassador for Profoto (North America/Sweden), Sprout Studio (Canada), and Vision Art (USA). Throughout the year, you can catch me at local camera stores doing small group tutorials, presenting at photo conferences in Canada and around the world, putting on workshops, and empowering other photographers through mentoring sessions at my studio.

Corporate Headshot Photography Etobicoke

As a headshot photographer in Toronto, I have an opportunity to meet and photograph some of Canada's top business owners, professionals, entrepreneurs, and people from within the arts.

A good headshot can be seen, but a great one can get you the job. Let me take your new headshot and show the real you; your personality and your strengths.

Business headshots are more important today than ever before. With social media and platforms like LinkedIn, you need to look your best and represent your brand accurately. I provide business headshots for advertising, business reports, various submissions, and other business purposes.

GTA Corporate Event Photography

A great PR image or a follow-up newsletter showcasing your successful corporate event can really show the participants, sponsors, and your business partners why they need to be there next time! I've photographed many corporate events in the city and have a team of experienced event photographers that can really bring out the sparkle in your next corporate event - be it galas, general meetings, launches, announcements, award nights, Holiday parties, or other celebrations.

Product Photography

Over the years I have photographed various products for e-commerce, branding, and commercial purposes. From clean seamless white backdrop catalogue product shots to complex creative art-directed scenes, I'm able to tackle any job from big to small. I'm happy to work in-studio or on location with a lifestyle or commercial vibe.

Toronto Wedding Photographer

As a top Toronto wedding photographer, I work with couples looking for unique and creative wedding photos, as well as natural and candid pictures for their wedding and engagement. I provide beautiful, dramatic, award-winning images, time and again and provide an experience that puts clients first. One of the things that makes my photography unique is that is inspired by fashion and fine-art. I love incorporating the editorial feel of fashion magazines into my wedding photography, while staying true to the emotion and rawness of the wedding day itself.

The love story of your wedding day and the moments that happen on the big day cannot be re-done. As an experienced photographer since 2009, I know the importance of candid photos and making sure those natural moments are captured for our brides and grooms. As one of the leading wedding photographers in the greater Toronto area, I make sure to be at the right place and at the right time to capture those candid, photojournalistic pictures.

Human Being & Photographer

That's right, I'm not a robot :) I came from the environmental industry... after completing an Hon.Bachelor of Science degree from York University, I worked as an environmental scientist and project manager for a consulting company for about 7 years. In 2007 I discovered photography. In 2009 I started a part-time photography business and in 2013 I left the consulting life to pursue something more creative... and what a journey it has been. Working as a professional photographer has been extremely rewarding. I am so thrilled that I'm able to run a photography studio, which I am so passionate about, and also offer various types of photography work, such as headshots, portraits, products, weddings, and event photography.

Family Portraits

If you are looking for family photos in Toronto or the GTA, I am your guy. I have a family of my own and I know how important those images are. Kids grow up in the blink of an eye and those moments are gone. Let me show what the day in your life looks like, so you can reflect on those moments for years to come.

Educator & Brand Ambassador

I’m passionate about teaching, growing the industry, and sharing my experiences with Toronto photographers and others worldwide. As a photography educator, I’ve participated and presented at various conferences, association meetings, and in-store events, and held workshops teaching lighting and off-camera flash.

I’m honoured to be one of only five Profoto ambassadors from Canada. I am also a Profoto PPC Trainer and teach workshops and conduct photo dealer trainings around the country.

In addition, I act as a brand ambassador for SLR Lounge, MagMod, Vision Art, Spider Holster, and Sprout Studio, Pixellu Smart Albums & Smart Slides, while also being affiliated with Sony Canada.
