Ryan Doan is an award winning freelance photographer and illustrator located at the Jersey Shore. His unique imagery has been published in numerous books and magazines nationwide and around the world.
His photography offers a visual recording of life; the “what is.”
His illustrative work allows him the pleasure of exploring subjects that don’t necessarily exist in our world; the “what is not.”
Sometimes he blurs the lines between the two.
Ryan worked for five years almost exclusively in the publishing industry employing advanced and artistic edits and retouching on primarily his own photography for print. During that time he also freelanced as a photographer concentrating on portraits and beauty shots for a variety of clients. Now, he draws on over 18 years of photographic and digital editing experience, as well as his artistic background and familiarity with the industry, to offer freelance retouching and advanced editing to a variety of clients. For the past 5 years he has been working as a full-time freelancer offering basically two services that draw on the same skill set:
1) For model and commissioned clients: unique artistic photo packages including “magazine quality” edits of all final imagery.
2) For photographers: advanced and standard retouching services.
Ryan still works in the publishing industry designing book covers and jackets for various publishers while also working on his own creator owned properties and digital paintings.
When not working on assignments he can be found walking on the beach with his wife Margarita and his furry sidekick Darwin.
He is always seeking to expand his freelance clientele and to take on exciting opportunities. Feel free to message him with any questions.
