Description

Price from: £230

My name is Ryan and I´m a photographer based in Woodstock, Oxfordshire. I´m a big fan of events as it brings so many like-minded people together with a positive focus.
With several years of experience as a commercial photographer, I have photographed both social and corporate events around the UK.
My corporate client's host conferences in Oxford, London and Amsterdam, which continually benefits my personal development & experience in this field.
I have a photojournalistic approach, capturing those candid moments but also satisfying the posers who love to confront the camera head-on.

As a professional and as a representative you, I arrive early, smartly dressed and ready to work hard. I have a sociable and friendly nature toward people and I´m sensitive to how they feel about my camera aiming at them.
I take a great deal of pride in my work and I want nothing more than for you and your guests to be proud of the images captured.

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.

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!
Highly recommended!

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.

Sports Event Photographer - 2hr Coverage

I am often requested to just focus on certain individuals in the team but I will typically photograph both spectators and those participating in the sporting activity to show a good overview of the event as an entertaining outing. Some of these images are inevitably used by the organisers to share with local press. I have plenty of experience working for Oxford Mail and I'll make sure you get suitable images for that purpose. Images of people preparing for the main event beforehand will also be included if applicable. Individual athletes/participants will be captured candidly during their activity. It is possible to include some formal portraits of participants. All images will be processed (usually within 48 hours) and uploaded to a gallery for you to download and share publicly if needed.

FAQs

  • What services do you offer?

    Event Photography, High-end Headshots & Portraits, PR / Press / Social Media Photography

  • What style of photos do you take?

    I have a photojournalistic approach, ( capturing the candid monents and setting up for the predictable moments to happen ) but I also enjoy appeasing the posers who simply must be captured with their friends/colleagues for instagram.

  • What kind of technology do you use?

    High - end Digital Camera (36 Megapixel, Full-frame DSLR)

  • Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

    I provide a secure online gallery for all my clients, to view photos, share with guests, download digital files and order physical prints from.

  • Do you send all the photos taken?

    After editing* through the images, all the relevant images will be processed and included in your gallery. *Editing is a term which refers to the process of sorting through, removing the bad shots and selecting which ones to keep.

  • Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

    I usually work alone unless it is clear that assistance will be needed. If that is the case, there are photographers that I share the load with.

  • In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?

    Yes. I am sometimes called on as a replacement for other freelance photographers if they are unable to fulfil a commitment and I if I ever need the favour returned, I will call on them.

  • How long does it take to process all the photos from an event?

    Most events are processed within 5-7 days. Some people are in no rush while others are keen to post a few of the images within hours of the event and I will do my best to accommodate your requirement.

  • How long should I book for?

    There is a minimum booking fee for two hours but most events are at least 3-5 hours long. Exceptions can be made upon request but a one or two-hour booking rarely makes sense if you wish to capture enough of the event. 90% of the bookings I receive are for 3, 5, 8 and 10 hours and I´m there before attendees arrive until the most important parts of the event have finished. Allow time for all the parts of your event that are important to showcase and if you find that you´ve not booked enough time, just ask to add more time on the day. Feel free to discuss the details with me for a more tailored and strategic cover of your event.
