We had the good fortune of connecting with Ryan K and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ryan K, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
In this day in age multiple incomes is the only way to progress which is one of the reasons why I decided to pursue photography professionally and create a business around my craft. Creating content for others and capturing images has always intrigued me. The day I realized there was ways of making money and developing a brand around my skills was the day it became a business and not just a hobby.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
The photography industry is challenging especially when your content primarily revolves around celebrities. Like every profession when you first start you go in not knowing much. Although I had an extensive background in the music industry and worked around celebs before it was different especially now being on the other side of the camera. Coming up there was definitely new things I had to learn not only about the craft and how to properly use a camera but also on how to separate yourself from other creatives. It was very challenging at first but after a while of trial and error and much practice the camera side of things fell into place and eventually I found my own unique style. One of the most important things you’ll need to learn as a photographer is “Relationships” keeping them, maintaining them and always be who you are. It’s been a great journey thus far. I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment and I owe all these experiences to hard work and persistence. I want the world to know when there working with Ryan K there working with the best. I pride myself in quality and providing clients with the looks that will last a life time.
