WeddingsByRyan has been on my radar for months now, and as a regular admirer of photographer Jonathan Ryan’s blog I was really happy when he volunteered for an English Wedding mini-interview! His answers are very entertaining… enjoy.
What inspires you?
Light, action, colour, drama.
I spend more time flicking through fashion magazines than looking at other wedding photographers’ work. I also get inspiration from films, TV, art.
About once a week I’ll wake up early in the morning with an image so clear in my mind that it could have been painted on the ceiling. Other times I’ll be driving along the road and see a particular pattern of light and think “wow – I could use that…”.
What do you love most about your work?
That I get to do it. I spent years working in an office and I still find it hard to believe that I can get up every morning and do new and exciting things and call it “work”.
