Andy Ryan - Creative Director & Photographer from London, UK

Andy first picked up a camera when he was 13 years old and has rarely been without once since. Having studied Photography at school and then going on to complete a Masters Degree in Photography at The Arts University Bournemouth, Andy returned to London, camera still in hand and continued his journey with his trade.

Working freelance provided Andy with a huge variety of projects to work on; from commercial & sponsorship content, through to editorial & creative pieces. The clients came from an array of industries including Sports, Corporate, Lifestyle, Fashion, Food & Beverage to name just a few. Between 2016 - 2019 Andy worked with Team GB on a number of their Hero events, to provide an  in-depth & eye catching photo series that showcased the emotion & action of what it takes to be an Olympic Athlete. With unprecedented access to Team GB Andy captured a behind the scenes story of life as an Olympian, and the emotional & physical rollercoaster of this journey.

In 2017 Andy co-founded the creative agency Komodo, who specialise in Social & Influencer Marketing, as well as providing their clients with full scale production & content services. Komodo has since grown to have offices in London, Sydney & Los Angeles and worked with well known companies such as Paypal, Sky & Disney. Today Andy sits as the Creative Director of Komodo and continues to pursue his love of creative story telling, through photography & mixed media.
