Ryan OConnor
Artist | Professional | Photography
United States
I'm a full-time freelancer and I started RJO Photo in August of 2006. The majority of my work is glamour but I also do wedding photography, commercial photography, videography, graphic design, artistic portraits, family portraits, and a few others.

To me, photographing a person is like photographing a piece of clay. My job is to mold the clay into the right position and to light, shoot, and edit it in a way that makes it look the best that it can possibly look.

A couple things most people don't know...

The models in my photos are not professional models. They're private individuals who hired me to photograph them. Which means I don't choose the models who shoot with me or the outfits they wear, and I don't choose which shots they order for retouching. They choose for themselves, which means every shot in my gallery was selected by the model or client as one of their personal favorites.

Please be respectful with your comments.
Feel free to critique the photography, but don't criticize the models.

Stock Use

NONE of my images are stock or can be used as stock unless the description explicitly says so. Unauthorized use may be a felony and is punishable by copyright law.

However, the image you'd like to use may be available for purchase. See my Shutterstock page for photos currently available.
