My name is Ryan Taylor and I am a wildlife, nature, and landscape photographer from Beavercreek, Ohio.
I studied at the New York Institute of Photography, graduating in 2017 with certificates in the Complete Course in Professional Photography and the Intensive Course in Travel Photography.
My work focuses on the genre of nature photography, and specializing in wildlife, wildflowers, trees and landscapes. I deliver high quality and archival wall prints while also promoting conservation and wildlife ethics.
All of the photographs you see on this site were taken in Ohio, most of them from somewhere along or around the Little Beaver Creek, a tributary to the Little Miami Watershed.
This particular area of Ohio is known for containing five of the six wetland types such as fens, marshes, creeks. Our state bird is the Northern Cardinal, and our state mammal is the White-Tailed Deer, the latter which I have photographed extensively over the years.
If you are looking for someone to photograph endangered species and to promote nature and conservation, I would be eager to travel and join your team! For any inquiries, just click the 'CONNECT' button at the top right.
Thank you for visiting.
My resume is available upon request.
The intentions of my work are to make people feel more connected with the natural world, and for them to see that it is an important part of our world we must appreciate everyday and not take for granted. As seasons change and species grow or disappear, I hope to bring awareness to conserve these bygones of a forgotten era. Acknowledging the past, recording the present, and preserving the future. To sit in quiet contemplation of a grand vista or landscape or silent observance among wildlife is unlike any other living experience. I approach phototaking as fine art and photojournalism in the sense that it is art that can be appreciated being framed and hung from a wall, but also as to document the ever-evolving nature around us. I only edit my photos as a means to preserve the real look of what I saw and what I want to share. If my images make viewers want to learn more and "get out there," then I've done my job.
