Ryan Cowan Photographer
With several years of experience as a commercial photographer, I also cover social and corporate conference events in Oxford, London and Amsterdam.
I have a photojournalistic approach, capturing those candid moments but also satisfying the posers who love to confront the camera head-on.

Ryan was an absolute legend!
I asked him to take some fly-on-the-wall photographs for my Mum and Dad's 50th wedding anniversary. Bearing in mind, my parents were quite resistant to the idea as they didn't want a camera being poked in everyone's faces, Ryan was absolutely first class.
He kept firmly in the background but still managed to capture so many wonderful moments and I really felt he somehow managed to capture the personalities and characteristics of people he had only just met. He was a delight to work with and when the photos came back, they were even better than I expected. And after only 2 days, Mum and Dad were chasing me to see if the photos had come (which they had as Ryan was so efficient). I would highly recommend Ryan for ANY event.

Ryan has photographed our events for many years now with stunning shots of our guests enjoying themselves which makes for very happy clients!
He's always in the right place at the right time to capture the moment as well as being on time and being willing to stay well past his contracted hours if things run over.
I would highly recommend him!

We thought Ryan was superb.
He took some brilliant pictures of our party, managed to capture everyone, got wonderful group shots, missed nothing, stayed until about 4am and then spent many hours editing and putting several hundred photos online. He was thoroughly professional but at the same time very easy to accommodate, not intrusive, and we would thoroughly recommend him.

I hired Ryan for a charity dinner that I run in memory of my brother.
Naturally this brings high expectations on my behalf and I could not be happier that I asked Ryan to take this job.
He was thoroughly professional, arriving early to scope out the room and get set up and staying later than planned so that everyone who wanted a photo had the chance.
Ryan is such a lovely guy too, taking the time to learn the reasoning behind the event and engaged so brilliantly with guests. And the photos were amazing!
