Ray Cornett, an exhibited fine art photographer and founder of the International Fine Art Guild. He was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio and is now living in Davis, California and has been involved in art in one way or another, from drawing to the photography. He first got into photography at the age of 10 with a Kodak Brownie purchased at a garage sale. Ray Cornett`s focus in photography, regardless of subject matter, is to photograph subjects which are not often photographed, or photographing common subjects to show them in a different way. This is showcased in his photography of people with tattoos as he shows that not all people with tattoos are to be feared or thought of as freaks and that they can be anyone from heads of major corporations to school teachers and little old ladies. Last year Ray Cornett participated in two gallery exhibits in Northern California featuring some of his still life’s and fine art nudes.
