In our newest video series titled In Real Life – IRL for short – we take a look inside the lives and minds of some of the most known creatives within our realm, specifically on the Internet. We go beyond the profile, with each new episode being a candid look into the everyday lives of our subjects – meeting their friends and observing their rise to Internet prominence.

For our first installment, we take a look at the man behind the handle RAYSCORRUPTEDMIND. Most notable for his exclusive portraits and behind-the-scenes snaps of rappers Travis Scott, Playboi Carti, Quavo and Lil Yachty, the budding photographer has established an intimate style which has helped him amass an immense following on Instagram. His distinct body of work has led to large corporations, such as Nike, looking to emulate his style.

In the featured video, we delve into Ray’s life – much of which he spends hanging out in Manhattan with his close friends Imran and Osiris. The young creative tells us how shooting at home with Bloody Osiris led him to eventually become Travis Scott’s personal photographer. During our time, Ray reveals his secret to capturing genuine moments with the most elusive artists, and provides valuable advice for other aspiring photographers.

Stay tuned for the next episode of IRL. Check our video page to stay up to date on all of our video content.
