My name is Ryan Munevar and I started out in Black & White Architectural Photography with 35mm film in Venice.
Now I am rocking digital and loving it.
I did 4 years on the East Coast and now I would like to make some photographer and model friends in and around the Bay Area.
I actually made the transfer because I was getting into Cinematography at the time and now I run a series of Film Clubs in Northern California. www.thefilmclubs.com
I travel weekly from Berkeley, to Carmel, Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Jose and San Francisco.
I also created and run the Synesthesia Film Festival in San Francisco which showcases the best short films from around the world.www.synesthesiafilmfestival.com
On top of all of that I am down in LA at least once a month for castings and production work.
It's a busy but fun life.
There are so many things worth learning and perfecting with photography that I feel fortunate to practice everyday.
Shoots on the Docket for the New Year:
-Yoga Long Exposure Night Shots: Currently I've been doing a series of long exposure night shots and would like to begin incorporating models into them going through different Yoga poses. The models would have to be able to hold them from 30-60 seconds in order to achieve the desired effect.
-Sparklers on Mirrors: I'd like to do a shoot with sparklers raining down at cool angles around a model with mirrors from all angles.
-Projected Sunrise/Sunset Images on Skin: Basically you take a digital projector and play a series of images on a nude body in the dark to paint the model with the images.Sleeping Beauty - Project Document
-Sleeping Beauty: Four poster bed with a model laying in it surrounded by pillows that traps the dry ice fog around her. Might go for black and white on this one, though color accents could be cool.
-Underwater Shoot: I just love shoots of models drifting up to the surface of a rippling surface with the sunlight coming through.
If you are interested in doing any of these then hit me up.
