A portrait of photographer Rafael Rodríguez

Rergam began as a marketing consultant specializing in commercial television spots in the 1980s.

Between 1995 and 1999 became a producer for Voice Art Productions. During this period produced three feature-length films: Amanecio de Golpe, a drama based on the coup d’état carried out during 1992 by Hugo Chávez, then an unknown lieutenant in the Venezuelan army; Hang the DJ, a docudrama based on the growing importance of DJs around the world; The adventures of Marco Antonio, a cartoon for children.

Between 1999 and 2003 he co-produced three cartoons in association with Manga Latina in Montreal.

Between 2003 and 2007 he wrote scripts for two feature-length films: Front View Mirror and Why Not?

All his life Rergam has been involved in photography. As with most experienced photographers, it all started with a darkroom and manual equipment. When the image quality of digital equipment rose to the levels of traditional systems, the switch became an easy task. Today, all this has been substituted with Nikon and Hasselblad’s lastest digital cameras and lenses as well as professional printing large format equipment. He has participated in photo shoots with master portrait photographers such as Greg Gorman and Marco Grob. Rergam’s work is featured in The Red Carriage Gallery in North Conway, New Hampshire.

Academic activities:
Rergam regularly conducts workshops in his studio either for groups or tailored for individual needs. He is a visiting photography professor at Bansomdejchaopraya Rahabhat University in Bangkok, Thailand.
