As a photographer:

Ryan took our family photos at our home. We are thrilled with how they turned out. He captured some wonderful unexpected moments and the personality of our family. He was great (and motivating) for my 6 year old to cooperate! After the fact, my husband (who is not into getting his photo taken) even mentioned how comfortable it was working with Ryan.

Ryan is kind and professional! He did great with a toddler and a dog :) We came away with some great candid and posed photos!

As an educator:

… Ryan was very friendly and his knowledge of the city was great. He had great tips on how to improve my street photography and showed me great spots to take photos. I highly recommend this experience! Thanks again Ryan.

I didn’t know what to expect as a retiree who is still trying to master the complexities of a too sophisticated DSLR camera. Ryan put me at ease right away by buying me a cup of coffee and chatting for a while before we set out on what turned out to be a walking tour of downtown Portland. We stopped a number of times to shoot photos. Ryan shared with me his passion for street photography and how he approaches the practice. He showed me good spots and how to wait for someone to step into the frame I picked out. The time with Ryan flew by. In the end, I felt motivated and impassioned. I can’t wait to get home to see what I have captured while I’ve been in Portland. Ryan also left me with a list of websites and workshop leaders to check out when I get home. I highly recommend Ryan’s street photography experience.

Had such a great time with Ryan learning about tricks and techniques of street photography. Got about a couple of decent shots I can be proud of and can’t wait to put everything I learned into practice soon. Definitely check it out!
