About Us

Introduction

Our Story

RTW Photography started as Ride The Wave Photography. In 2016, our Founder and CEO, Derrious Robinson, picked up a camera in an effort to showcase the latest fashion trends. As the company continued to grow, the focus shifted to encompass all photography – specifically portrait photography. 

In 2017, the RTW Photography as we know it today, was born. Derrious and Tre, both classmates and fraternity brothers, saw an opportunity to join forces and grow the business. Originally sought after by college students across the state of Florida, RTW became well-known for its iconic graduation photos.

In 2018, the company continued to expand. We set our sights on becoming a wedding photographer. In June of 2018 we had the opportunity to shoot our first wedding….and we killed! For the remainder of the year we continued to expand our wedding photography services, began providing services to small businesses and purchased our first photo booth.

In 2019 We added our third partner, LaVell Monger, to the company. His passion for story-telling and knowledge of cinematography is what we needed to take our company to the next level. During 2019, we expanded our wedding services to include videography, and we also expanded our commercial services. 

In 2020, RTW hosted its first class of interns, which consisted of 3 interns from the University of Central Florida. We also invested in live-streaming technology and opened our first Studio in the Parramore Community of Downton Orlando.

Why We Are Different

RTW Photography has created several job opportunities in the Arts & Creative industry. Our studio is located in Downtown Orlando, FL in the historical neighborhood of Parramore. We strategically chose the Parramore location for our first studio. Over the years, we’ve received support from many members of the Central Florida community and the Parramore community. It was important for us to be close and accessible to Downtown Orlando and the community from which many of our long-term supporters reside.

Overall, our goal is to offer a safe, creative space for our clients and local freelancers. We are committed to sharing our space with the community. As a small business, we understand the need for entrepreneurs and companies to have an affordable and professional space to create content.
