''2010-11-03 20:59:28'' [[nbsp]] Ray Johnson IS A VERY UNPROFFESSIONAL, and SICK-MINDED MAN. He is very inappropriate with his female clients. I would never take or suggest his service to anyone. I use to work at the wonderful STYLE LOUNGE salon, right next door to Ray. I use to cut his third ex-wife's hair. She told me that she met him through the internet and sponsered her to America. She is a very nice woman, very beautiful and she deserves to be with someone better than the unfaithful Ray. My sister in law went to his business to take pictures about 2 months ago for the Real Estate business card. Ray seemed really nice and friendly. He offered her free family portraits, if she allowed him to use her family as models (My brother, +2 kids, ages 13 and 3). He also offered her photography lessons, since he knew the skill is useful for her real estate business (in taking pictures of houses). A month passed, I found out, that —RAY ATTEMPTED TO HAVE AN AFFAIR WITH MY SISTER IN LAW—-. I quit the job that very next day. I loved my job VERY much, but because my heart couldn't take seeing him anymore, I had to quit and did not provide an explanation to my wonderful boss. I just cried and told him that I was moving back to the bay area, and I have not stepped foot into Davis since. Both my brother and I kindly contacted RAY and requested that he would stop emailing, text messaging, calling or just plain keeping in touch with my sister-in-law in any way. But he didn't stop. He continued to persist, claiming his frustrations, loneliness, and sadness is the reasons he continues when she tries to avoid him. —He is still married.— He claims he is going through a divorce; admitting that he has cheated on his wife, numerous times. He has been married and divorced 3 times, with his selfish nature; he probably doesn't understand how serious his actions are, and perhaps he doesn't have any kids, to know how it feels to be a father. He broke up my family. He tore us apart. We are now selling our house in Sacramento, and are moving back to the bay area. Ray has made numerous threats towards my brother that if he wants his family back together, then he must stop calling. We stopped calling Ray, but Ray didn't trying to get in contact with my sister in law, like he said he would. What else was a man to do to protect the happiness of his family from being jeopardized by Ray. We have no choice but accept it and try to handle this very maturely as possible, while he keeps on breaking our family apart. My sister in law is a wonderful person, but he has corrupted her mind. I wish he would leave us alone, and leave my sister in law alone. I am not lying. This is not a crazy story to stop people from coming, because it is a true story. I stand by it, and I put my life on it. After awhile of debating about telling my story, because I never told anyone at work, I have decided for the sake of other families out there, I must tell my story of Ray. People can contact me anytime if you feel like my story is wrong. Those who knows me know that I am a kind, very happy and loyal person. I just want to let people to know that Ray is not as kind as we all think, that deep down inside, he is a horrible, sad and sick man. Thank for reading my experience.

2008-01-31 22:30:28   Being an artist and businessman, I was looking for a creative business headshot photographer here in Davis, CA. I wanted more than the “glamorized passport photo” that I see everyday, such as the realtor headshot I see on the shopping carts at Safeway. In the past, I’ve walked by Ray Johnston Photography’ studio window on G Street on my way to work many times. I’ve always admired his photographs of family, baby and wedding photography. I was even more amazed with the samples he shared with me when I went into his studio. Ray has a large indoor studio with many backdrops and different types of lighting. He was very helpful in helping me choose the clothing styles and colors to compliment my portrait. Ray helped me feel at ease during the photo session. After the photo session, I was very happy to see the many images to choose from, different angles, lighting styles, and backgrounds. Needless to say, I got more than I expected. I now have images for web, business card, and brochure. I also gave a print to my girlfriend and parents. Thanks Ray – Awesome job!!!


2008-04-02 20:01:09   Ray has had some interesting photos for sure! It's sad cause I remember recognizing most of the people in the display photos from being around Davis for long —StevenDaubert


2009-04-15 22:45:35   Ray was realy great with our 3.5 year old daughter and son age 1.5. There was no way our son was going to cooperate, sit still ,look at the camera, yada yada until Ray brought out his secret weapon - the rubber chicken. It was amazing. Passport photos for Switzerland and Canada were perfect, plus he's a nice guy. With Ray you get small town service. I was surprised at the cost, $65 per set (but 50% off for the second set of Canadian passport photos was nice). We called around and most places charge the same or more just for US passport photos and they don't know how to handle foreign passport pictures. With so many foreign students at UC Davis you can see how he got into this line of work. —CarlShepherd
