Raúl Durán

Spanish photographer living in Budapest specialized in ballet and dance photography.

Hey there, it’s Raúl Durán, and no worries, I will keep this short: I’m a Spanish photographer living in Budapest for more than a decade. Before having a camera I used to draw professionally. A younger version of me studied in ESDIP (Escuela Superior de Dibujo Profesional) in Madrid back in the early 2000s. I was lucky to work in several areas involving drawing, from storyboarding, text and children’s books, and even a couple of animated short films. One day I got a camera and started to play with it. It turned out that I quite enjoyed it and kept doing it and learning, and even better, some people wanted me to take photos of them! So that’s what I do nowadays. I focus a lot on dance and ballet photography, but if you’ve seen my portfolio, you’ll see that I also work a lot doing portraits and commercial work.


Raul is very kind, nice and friendly person, professional and creative! I’m always enjoying the process of shooting and the result is amazing as well! His pictures are full of colours, perfect composition and unique style!

Just do it! It was an amazing experience. We left Budapest, not only with amazing photos, but amazing memories of this city. Raul was amazing, we spent the morning with him and he told us a lot about the city. The pictures are amazing! We loved it! If you’re not sure, let me clear up your mind: go and have this amazing experience.

Raul is a wonderful artist and an amazing person. I truly recommend him for all kind of photo sessions. We did a family portrait session with him, which is in my opinion the hardest to manage and accomplish with a 2 yr old boy, a 1 wk old girl and a 10+ dog 😃 we got amazing pictures, which will serve as wonderful memories for eternity. He was unbelievably patient and calm ☺️ I would love to give 100 stars if possible

Wir haben Raul für unsere Hochzeit in Wien engagiert und sind so glücklich, dass er unseren besonderen Tag in Fotos verewigt hat. Wir konnten uns vor seiner Kamera unter seinen und Elena Anweisungen natürlich und frei bewegen und konnten somit unseren Fotos eine persönliche Note verleihen. Seine Betreuung war sehr einfühlsam, die Nachbearbeitung unglaublich rasch! Er hatte uns ein Komplettpaket zu einem Spitzenpreis angeboten. Wir sind sehr zufrieden!

Highly highly recommended if you’re in Budapest. Raul is a great professional, photographer and very friendly. My first time doing a photoshoot and I didn’t really know what to do or how well to pose but he helped me with the poses and made the experience very very comfortable. He also went above and beyond to pick me up from where I stayed and even extended the shoot for me to get some pictures at a nearby locations. I’m really glad I went through with it.

Raul was attentive and very chill. He even came to pick me up from the hotel I was staying at to accommodate me. I really liked how he knew when to be at the Matthias church bright and early because everyone is taking photos. He knows what positions to make you move for a photoshoot. Highly recommend!

Raul was really nice, friendly, corteous, funny and attentive. He really wanted to take the best shots and took so many pictures of me in all possible positions and places around the bastion. The pictures turned out really beautiful and I love them all. Even the contact after the Shoot was great. He makes sure that the client is more than satisfied with the pictures. I am so happy I booked this session as it was more than worth it. I can only recommend.

Raul was very accommodating, down to earth and friendly. I absolutely loved his photojournalistic approach and artistic flair. The pictures turned out even more beautiful than I imagined. Highly recommend Raul to anyone who is looking for a top-notch, talented photographer in Budapest.
