About Ryan

Back to Ryan’s Galleries

I was born in Ottawa and spent most of my life living here. I grew up like most other Canadians in a loving home with great support. I had many passions through out my life. In Grade 8 I wanted to be an astronomer, Grade 11 a chemist, Grade 12 an economist. I ended up graduating high school and took Economics at Carleton University. In my second year of university I had a crush on a girl who was heavily involved in the Carleton University Photography Club. At first I just went to the photography meetings because I wanted to hang out with her but then I developed a serious interest in Photography. It study facts here now became my hobby for the next 4 years. After University I was struggling to figure out what I wanted to do as a career. After 2 years of trying all kinds of different jobs I decided I wanted to be a professional photographer.

Going against the advice of many, I registered my business and opened shop. Like many creative fields its a very competitive market. I decided I was going to pursue my passion. I entered the photography scene with a student perspective and I just absorbed everything. I worked for some photographers, did editing, assisting and shooting.

In the early days of my career I was mainly focused on fashion, event and studio photography. I had never shot a wedding and to be honest was a little scared to. I think the hardest part of becoming a wedding photographer is shooting your first wedding. It was quite a nerve racking experience for me. But at the end of the day it was a rush that made me feel amazing. I just spent the greatest day of someones life with them. So much happiness, fun, excitement, emotion. I instantly fell in love with wedding photography. Since 2007 I have been living out my dream, to love my job!

And here we are today!
