I FEEL A SENSE OF PEACE...

I've always been drawn to the sea, there's something about her that's always calls to me. The majority of my work is based around the ocean whether shooting seascapes or personal projects. Whenever I'm standing on the shoreline, I feel a sense of peace as I listen the heartbeat of the ocean as each wave wash up onto the shore & washes back out, it calms my soul. I try to recreate that feeling in my photography. I've been using ND filters to slow down the movement of the water & sky, trying to capture not only a single still moment, but to capture a short glimpse of time. I also love shooting environmental portraiture, it helps to keep my focus on my passion for photography by mixing it up a bit.

My camera, the choice of lens, tripod & the ND filters...are tools that I use to help me to paint my vision onto a canvas. Nikon, Fuji, Sony...brand names doesn't matter, it won't help me to become a better photographer, they're just tools. With that said, use the tools that works for you, to help you see & create your own stylized vision. Be unique & never settle...Aloha, Ryan
