Ryan Funk is a friendly and passionate photographer. After completing his BFA in Fine Art Photography at Concordia University he moved back to Vancouver to start shooting. He loves to shoot people, whether that's a wedding, family, or fashion photography. He loves having fun with his clients and creating a light-hearted environment when he takes photos.
I love being able to connect with people over photography. When I take an amazing picture and the person in it is wowed it really makes my day. It is so much fun to create a fun environment that puts the subjects at ease. When people are having fun it makes it so much easier to take great photos.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I had a family shoot with this little one who wasn't smiling. He had just woken up and was very grumpy. His mom was starting to get stressed that she wouldn't have any good pictures with him. So I went to town doing all sorts of funny faces and noises to get him to engage with me. I started pretending to sneeze and that got him to laugh and laugh. He couldn't stop smiling after that, which made the mom so ecstatic.
