Ryan Davies

Ryan Davies

Ryan has been a self-taught, hobbyist photographer for a little over 10 years, starting out using photography as a way of documenting his explores in the Napoleonic and WW2 forts and tunnels in his hometown of Dover, Kent.

 

Using long-exposure “light-painting” techniques, synonymous amongst urban exploration, Ryan was able to create his own drama inside an image with various lights and coloured flashes, whilst also documenting the history of the tunnels or forts for others. As time passed, photography became more of a passion than the exploring, and so the skills learnt underground were tried and tested above ground.

 

Now with a strong focus on both landscape and street photography, Ryan travels around the UK with his fiancée and their dog, documenting their adventures with both digital and film cameras. Since seriously taking up film photography around 3 years ago, Ryan now considers himself a hybrid photographer, and truly believes there is a place for both digital and film photography together; from film photography having the ability to capture the brightest elements without losing detail, to the immense speed, focus, and editing options found with digital photography.

 

From starting out lugging around a heavy tripod, with bags of flashguns, torches and filters, Ryan now travels light as much as he can, keeping things simple with one lens per camera, handheld meters, and a few filters, relying on subtle editing to create the photo.

 

You don’t take a photography, you make it”. Ansel Adams

Flyover - Lancaster over Battle of Britain " This is two of my images layered together using Adobe Photoshop Cs5  The first is a shot of the Avro Lancaster of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight team.  The second is a shot of the statue found at the Battle of Britain Memorial in Capel-Le-Ferne, Folkestone; a much favoured spot of mine to relax and shoot.  I have added a touch of saturation to the sky, other than that the photo is as it was".

  An 'R.A.F Pilot' standing by the Hawker Hurricane, the unsung hero of WW2.  Starting life as a unsuccessful biplane, the Hurricane was rejected for being too heavy, too expensive, and no engine existing that could power her.  When Rolls-Royce introduced the ground-breaking Merlin engine, the Hurricane was redesigned as a monoplane fighter, being the first R.A.F fighter to exceed 300mph at 15000 feet.

The Aerostars - Duxford  Spitfire Mk LFVb flew with 501 Squadron in 1942, and accounted for seven German aircraft before an accident cut short its career.  After repairs it served with 19 Squadron in Cornwall, 402 Squadron (RCAF) and finally being allocated to an Occupational Training Unit.  It appeared as a static aircraft in the film "Battle of Britain" and after spending some years in storage was purchased and brought back to former glory by The Fighter Collection in 1993, finally airworthy again in 1995.  Since then it was appeared in the films Pearl Harbour and Dark Blue World.
