Call to say hi:  (+64) 021 2662431


​After 2.5 decades into the fine-art, I can say:

Everyone can indeed hold a camera, but not everyone can be a photo-artist! 

In my art, I am a rule-breaker and rule maker!

I present NO mediocrity

I am very proud and honored to be one of only a handful of rare talented photographers from around the globe who hold an international title of GLOBAL BRAND AMBASSADOR for the renowned Kenko-Tokina camera optics manufacturer, thanks to my known and well thought artistic style. My work is exhibited internationally on the above camera company websites, exposed to millions of photographers and interested parties.

So, the name is Collins Ryàn and I am a:

  • proud Kiwi,

  • professional photographer,  

  • reviewer of professional art and photography gear,

  • fine-art artist,

  • dealing also in graphic design and web design, and a meticulous restorer of damaged photographs.

I have also mentored other photographers and I simply LOVE the profession. I am based in Auckland, New Zealand, but have shot internationally. 

I have been releasing my artwork internationally, and have been writing my articles in a few languages for the aimed professional photographers audience and followers around the world.


My specialty is to make customers just like you - super happy! 

I am able to deal with projects as small as a one-to-one portrait session, to a massive amount of people in one company. I use state of the art photography and lighting equipment and deliver the product according to the highest set of standards!  



Photography services can be in several fields:


Amal M.

He is an excellent photographer with a keen eye for details. Absolutely amazed by his immaculate work.
I had a one on one model shoot training with him about lighting. It was really good and his teaching style is very friendly and clear.


Marisa G.

Beautiful. Your photos are so authentic, really different from any photographer I've seen so far. You have your own 'handwriting', keep on developing that style that makes your work uniquely you.


Jane L.

thank you Ryan. It is true art in a photographic form.  I appreciate your talent immensely!


Rudi H.

My two girls and I have recently done a photo shoot with Ryan. While my girls were a little nervous to begin with Ryan quickly put them at ease and had them laughing and doing shots I never would have imagined. The photos are stunning, and really capture their personalities. The colours and the composition of the photos are beautiful and capture a moment of time to treasure. I thought the photos were great and then I saw the canvases! Wow! The high definition of the canvases exceeded all expectations. Thank you Ryan! I highly recommend Ryan to anyone wanting a professional photo shoot with high quality photos.
