Photographer in Bangkok, Thailand
Christopher Ryan is a fine arts photographer in Bangkok, Thailand.
I am primarily focused on my project Youth and Urban Decay as well as street photography, and my volunteer work as a photographer for disabled orphan children. I also welcome work as an outdoor portrait photographer for travelers wishing to enhance their experiences in Asia. In addition, I am available to work as a second shooter for other photographers.

Training and Experience
I have been a hobby photographer since I was 9 years old. In 2014 after losing my career job in high-rise construction, I decided to transform into this professionally and took a full course load at Santa Fe Community College where I made the Dean's list in the photography program. After the first semester, I was very anxious to gain experience as a street photographer in the real world and moved to Bangkok which serves as my base for exploring Asia. I have also worked as a freelance photojournalist for several publications in south Florida many years ago.
Currently I am a volunteer photographer for Camillian Home for Disabled Children in Ladkrabang, Thailand. This is a very rewarding experience for me. Projects include photography for the annual report, profile photos of the children, and special events coverage.
As I am still working towards becoming a professional and realize there is much to learn, my price structure is very reasonable. For example, I can lead clients on a 1 to 4 hour walking tour around Bangkok and create beautiful individual or family portraits for 1,000 Thai Baht per hour plus 1,000 fee for editing. In order to gain more experience I am looking for work as an assistant for a serious professional photographer. I will be glad to work in any genre as an assistant and can travel anywhere!
I am very interested in finding a gallery space for "up & coming" photographers to display my work with children. Especially the Youth and Urban Decay project. Please contact me if you have a space available in Bangkok.
