About Ryan Struck

I am a self-taught Brooklyn based photographer. Earning a BA in History allowed me to investigate the things that have occurred in the world of which I knew nothing about. In that same spirit, photography allows me to be curious about the world and what surrounds us. I enjoy saving poignant moments through a visual medium, documenting lifestyle often fulfills this need quite nicely. I love what I do. When not at home shooting I can be found traveling in search of surf and inspiring natural lighting. My desire to capture images that help viewers imagine the instant the shutter clicked fuels my passion to combine beautiful light, people and places.

    The pic of New York with threating sky is very dramatic. Cheers Max from Tasmania.

    • Until even a handful of weeks ago, I would have been strongly in the “old-school” court. But while I am still wrapping my head around the nuances of social media and chat in TEs, I understand that in order to maximize these, I have to throw my old-school thinking out the window.For those of you who say social media is for “chatty women” and the like, I’ll throw out this question: Which is likely going to yield strong long-term results for you? Twenty-five people who sign up for whatever your opportunity is, who never really get to know you? Or one person whom you’ve gotten to know, one person whom you’ve developed a rapport and trust, who decides, “Hey, this guy knows his stuff, I think I’ll see what he’s offering.”This was a trick question, by the way, because the truth is that we can meet our goals using either approach.For those of us who love our tracking and our numbers and our calculations of ROI, social media is daunting because those traditional rules have to be set aside. You have to operate more on instinct. You have to put your ledger sheets and your QuickBooks away for a few minutes and just be a person.You’ll be surprised what you might find out when you do. I know I was.

    That should read threatening sky – where is the spell check when you need it – Cheers Max again.
