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. A 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, 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
