Description

Price from: £220

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.

Excellent service, could not ask for any more. Really good communication, and at the end delivered photos which were amazing. Would definitely recommend!

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.

Anniversary Celebrations

Typically I capture images of the venue/decor before roaming around with your guests to capture people coming together. As guests meet and greet one another with a drink in hand, I will be looking to capture candid engagement with one another. I keep capturing images until your guests sit down to eat but once they start eating, I generally leave them in peace. If there are any speeches or surprise presentations you would like me to be ready for, let me know the order of events and I ́ll be prepared. I'll be ready to capture any guest interactions candidly as well as accommodating any impromptu posed portraits with friends and family. You may of course decide to add some formal portraits too. I can set this up inside or outside depending on the venue and, of course, the weather. I usually process all the images within a few days of your event and upload them to a private online gallery to be shared with your guests who will be able to download any images they like, at no further cost

Candid Birthday Celebration Photos

Typically I will capture images of the venue/decor before guests arrive and then roam around with your guests to capturing the atmosphere of people coming together. As your guests meet and greet one another with a drink in hand, I will be looking to capture candid engagements. If there are any speeches or surprises you would like me to be ready for, let me know the order of events and I ́ll be prepared. I will continue capturing any antics, interactions and dancing as well as accommodating any impromptu posed portraits with friends. You may decide to add a formal portrait station for guests too. This is where I bring along my studio lighting set-up for people to stand in. I prefer to use the natural background of the location, which helps to give context to the portraits. I usually process all the images within a few days after your event and upload them to a secure online gallery to be shared with your guests who will be able to download any images they like, at no further cost.

Sporting Event Photography

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.
From: £330.00 per event
