An alliterative genius, Ryan can write-up a wise-cracking, witty title for his photos within ten seconds flat. And his fotos are pretty phat too! From models to mugs, to colors on drugs, he demonstrates meticulous attention to detail and a level of quality that is hard to match. Moreover, the guy is a fricken Nikon-Nikkor freakaholic, and it looks like he’s used every lens ever made. So, watch out, ‘cause he can “…outshoot you, out run you, out think you…” as Max Cady might say. Lorenzo!

i've been following ryan's photostream for the past few years, and i'm really glad to call him my number one inspiration in the wedding photography category. his work is unparalleled. i've never seen anyone take such a photojournalistic stance at shooting wedding photography, and everyone who has tried has fallen short of ryan (no offense). ryan's stream is one of my favorites to visit on flickr because it is constantly inventive and always impressive. it's easy to see that he does a great job as a wedding photographer--i've done photo shoots in the past, and it's truly a task to make people feel comfortable if you don't know them--ryan's couples always seem natural in front of the lens, which leads me to believe that he's a smooth talker. in addition, ryan is a master of strobing. like, seriously. i've never seen someone in the wedding photography biz as effective and creative with lighting as ryan is, and it is a true testament to his number one spot in the field. ryan, your work is amazing. i hope to one day be as knowledgeable about strobing and wedding photography as you are. keep up the good work!

Anyone who can snag him for their wedding is pretty dang lucky.

Ryan is quite simply the best photographer I know. It has been an honor to work with him in the past and I look forward to working with him in the future. You will always be happy that you booked with him.

I can't believe I haven't written a testimonial for Ryan yet. Ryan is one of my oldest Flickr friends dating back to good ole days of 2004 when Flickr still had shiny new floors. I have had the pleasure of watching this photographer grow and develop into the true professional that he is today. What a great trip it has been! I had the distinct pleasure of having Ryan photograph my son's wedding rehearsal, dinner party, ceremony and reception throughout a full day and a half. I could not be happier! Not only did he photograph for hours and hours on end, but he shared what he shot, as he shot, through the use of his computer running a slideshow set up for people to see. What a terrific addition to the event. People were able to share the memories almost as soon as they were being made. From what I have seen of those presentations, I cannot wait to see all the photos from the weekend. I'm so excited! If you are looking for someone to shoot an event for you, I can honestly say that you could not hire anyone better than Ryan! He is a top notch professional and I truly enjoyed having him included in our special weekend! Thank you Ryan!

Debo decirte que tu trabajo dignifica este genero de fotografia que mucha gente no valora. Enhorabuena I dont speak english, or at least I do not dare to use it, but your photos of wedding seem to me to be really incredible. I'm photographer years being employed at press, and now I go a time doing photos in wedding. I must say to you that your work dignifies this kind of photography that great people do not value.

He's okay, I guess. :)

I love how at the end of looking at his pictures, it must makes me want more. So, I want to repeat everything, everyone has already said. It's all true. He is THAT great!

Yes, Ryan needs another testimonial like he needs a hole in the head. I would be remiss, however, to not shout out loud how inspirational his work has been to me and my career, albeit maddening... Why? Because all the technology in the world can't give you the ability to bring out that special quality in people, especially when they're looking down the barrel of a lens. Ryan's portraits portray a special intimacy with his subjects, and it's an ability you're either born with or not. I'm not sure if I have it, but I can damn well tell you that he does. His framing and composition is second to none, and gives you the impression that he was just in the right place at the right time (which most of us know is the hardest thing to accomplish consistently). And yes, he allows you peer into the soul of the one he's introducing you to. And that, after all the schooling and books and techniques and seminars, is what separates the best from the rest. Thanks for sharing your work with us, Ryan. It's our pleasure.

I have since had the pleasure of having him shoot events for the magazines I work for, and his work is nothing less than astonishing! I've learned so much form trying to deconstruct his photos, all the information he imparts in his photostream, and now, directly through his Amazon blog. Don't forget to check out his website at www.ryanbrenizer.com Dude, you rock! You are so freaking good!

Many of Ryan's shots are in my favourites. For good reasons! He has consummate skill at composing, exposing and just plain nailing a shot. Always on the look out for something unusual and will pull something magical out of even the most mundane subjects. Simply skilled beyond belief!

A frequent flow of everything but the ordinary wedding and event photography, carpe icthus' photostream is a source of original ideas and new views on how to perfect the demanding craftsmanship of being there and documenting it.

for a good time in new york, call..... so I've sat here for 10 minutes now thinking of what to say. Simply put, he's a great photographer that knows what he's talking about. He's easy to talk to and not stuck up for being a "big flickr" photographer. Ryan took time out of his schedule and showed me the true city life in new york city and it worth every penny that the burger and beer cost me. Ryan, if your ever in Grand Rapids, let me know, I'll show you around my neck of the woods.

I just wanted to thank Ryan for always responding to me when I had a Nikon question. Since my purchase of the D200 he has always been generous and sincere with his advice and I thank him for that. Some would laugh and ignore those who are beginning their "professional" journey with photography. Ryan is always willing to share his knowledge, especially to newbies as myself. Ryan, because of your patience and generosity, your photography career continues to flourish! I am grateful for all that you share with us!!!

I can't imagine what Flickr would be like without people like Ryan, who selflessly shares his knowledge on everything photography related. His photos are astounding and often times breathtaking. I can't count how many times i've said "oh my gosh, thats spectacular" when i look at the newly posted photos.

What you may not know about this gentleman is that he is also a generous member of the Flickr community ... one who takes time to comment and view other's images on a regular basis. He is also very active in the community and shares his knowledge of photography often with newcomers and seasoned pros alike. Flickr is a better place because of Ryan, and I'm proud to be able to call him a friend....

Ryan is a professional photographer, prolific photography writer, and Flickr personality. He really doesn’t need a testimonial but I’m feeling generous. :-) Oh yeah, the man has discriminating taste when it comes to camera body and lens choices. You should buy what the same equipment as him. ;-)

For me, carpe icthus is one of the most talented photographers in Flickr. He makes all type of photos and always his photos are excellent. Seeing its photos I learn every day.

Absolutely AMAZING! Your photos are incredibly stunning, I hope one day I can become as good as you! Cheers

I keep coming back to Ryan's photostream for more images, information and inspiration. To me, his images are like a delicious bedtime snack at the end of a long day. He may be one of the coolest people I've come to know on flickr or in life.

July 31, 2006

Ryan takes consistently good pictures and has definitely been a source of inspiration and a pillar of the Flickr community. Each of his shots are invariably thoughtful and make them all the more special.

I've been a huge fan of Ryan's work for quite some time and have been going through a stream . Not only he is a professional photographer, exspecially in moment capture , his photo skills with high ISO non-flash photography is stunning . I like to name him the "King of moment shot"

June 29, 2006

Ryan is one of the rarities on flickr: an actual professional photographer who shares both his pictures and his knowledge. Oh, and I didn't have the faintest idea what his screen name meant until he added the space in the middle.
