Ryan Russell Photography
I grew up in a Suburb of Baltimore where I became fascinated with storytelling at an early age. For Christmas one year, I got my first point-and-shoot camera and I never left home without it. At 17, I enrolled in a photography class in high school where I cut my teeth in dark room and film development.
When I turned 18, I moved to NYC to attend a Liberal Arts College for Theatre Performance. It was the first time I was immersed in art of all different types. A few of the photographers at my college told such amazing stories with their images. I looked up to them. I loved the way the sun was hitting the lens and what that said about the person in the image. When I got my first professional camera, I spent my free time learning everything I could to increase the dynamics of my images.
Now, There is nothing I love more than bringing that energy to a photoshoot. I love collaborating with a client to offer them candid moments and images that captivate the viewer. I do this by stripping away the noise and getting to the heart of the story. I focus on clothing, location, and time of day to take the most dynamic photo.
Let's create something together!
