In-camera tricks to create surreal imagery - It's Nice that !

Words Daniel Milroy Maher

From a young age, Ryan Hopkinson was fascinated by documentary and war photography, but he knew very quickly that he could never do it himself. Following various jobs assisting other photographers in London, and after receiving guidance from several mentors, he realised that his “mind and approach was more focused on constructing imagery.” He would be a “terrible documentary photographer” he concedes, though this is no longer a concern for Ryan, who has found his own niche between arts and commerce. Having gone from strength to strength since first studying photography, he has worked for and collaborated with a host of high-profile brands including Rimowa, Rolex, Issey Miyake, Louis Vuitton and Craig Green, among others.
