About Me ¶ 

Wasssup! My name is Ryan Kirkpatrick. I am currently employed as a Product Photographer at iFixit. I am a 4th year Computer Science student at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. I began photography at a young age and have continued to pursue it my entire life. In high school I took many introductory courses in photography, photo imaging, photoshop and video film. I cannot thank my photography and video film teachers, Kendall Younglund and Mark Raines, enough for teaching me the techniques that got me to where I am today. "Crop with your feet!", "Your photo sucks!".

I love to shoot landscapes. Living in San Luis Obispo, provides me with endless vistas to seek out and Big Sur is only a short drive away! One of my favorite subjects to shoot are clouds, especially thunderclouds. I am a huge weather nerd and the fleeting nature of it makes it incredibly difficult to shoot, but when you nail that perfect shot it feels so good.

If I'm not coding or photoing then you will most likely find me cruising Highway 1

looking for waves, or getting lost in the hills of Big Sur, or walking my doge.
