There are few out there who have shot Richard Branson posing beside a golden lift for Travel and Leisure, or Tavi Gevinson reclining serenely on her bed for The Great Discontent, which leads us to believe that Ryan Lowry is no ordinary photographer. Splitting his time between Chicago and NYC (although his site specifies that he is available for projects “everywhere in the world… E V E R Y W H E R E”) he’s racked up an incredible roster of clients with his candid, dynamic imagery, including Apartamento, commissioners of all things excellent Bloomberg Businessweek, Vice and Condé Nast, as well as a bunch of others. He seems to be part of a new school of portraiture photographers able to bypass all of the stale sitting about making idle conversation and jump straight to the part where you’re having a really good laugh with your subjects, and his work is all the better for it.
