My name is Ryan Gonzales and I am a Photographic Craftsman Degree holder as well as a Certified Professional Photographer with 12 years of knowledge and experience. I wanted to let you know about a program I put together over a year ago and has been successful, not only for me but for other photographers from around the nation.
I specialize in weddings and portraits with an emphasis on portraiture. Because of this I am able to offer my clients the very best photography to not only provide lasting memories but to flatter them with posing, lighting, composition and that little artistic touch to make it unique.
At the beginning of 2015 I began an awesome mentoring program that has helped out a lot of beginning, advanced and professional photographers from around the nation. Mentoring is something I have become very passionate about because it is helping this art form to become what it once was. Today everybody is a photographer and that can't be further from the truth. Photography is an art and you must continue to educate yourself so that you can better our markets and the industry.
It is very simple for me to help you to become better photographers and business people. I have mentored with one of the best photographers and business person that I know. This mentor has taught me everything that I know today and continue learning day in and day out. He has helped me to become a better business person so that I am not a starving artist and I want to help you as he has helped me.
