Ryan Wright is based in Boulder, Colorado and has traveled extensively to share photos, stories, and knowledge with you.
This website is built with you in mind to help photographers find resources, reviews, tutorials, tips, blogs, and more to grow their craft. One of the biggest takeaways from photography that I have found is an appreciation for "the moment". As a landscape photographer, I have watched numerous beautiful sunsets and sunrises in the Colorado backcountry, all by myself and away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. That moment may look different for you and your craft, but it's searching and seeking after that moment where everything comes together in front of your lens. That's a noble search if you ask me.
I have a few blogs that I'm currently working on, but I wanted to highlight one blog from the get-go. One of my most popular blogs on my previous blog was my review of VSCO Film 01 and its advantages and the disadvantages of using those Lightroom presets. You can find that blog by clicking here, or explore any of the articles below to find helpful resources, trip reports, and tutorials.
One of the questions I often get asked when out shooting is what type of filter I'm using and why I use that neutral density photographic filters. There is a lot of information out there on the subject of photographic filters but what I hope to establish is how I use them as a landscape photographer and scenes that I think are best suited for their usage.
In this tutorial, I'll be explaining how to photograph the moving water of a waterfall to create a silky white ribbon that will really make your photos pop. I'll also be briefly going over gear needed to take successful long exposures of waterfalls that will have your friends marveling at your photos.
This is one of my favorite instructions to give photographers, how to take photos of the Milky Way. While it's not the hardest lesson I've learned in photography, it's not the easiest either and you'll need a certain amount of gear to make the most of your time. But the pay-off is highly rewarding, because being able to capture what isn't viewable by the naked eye is truly something to behold. Learn how to take photos of the Milky Way here, and begin practicing!
Read about Ryan and growing up in Colorado and how that shapes his vision for photography.
My blog is partly dedicated to sharing the knowledge that I have gained over the last 10+ years doing photography.
