Have you checked out Connor Ryan on YouTube yet? This Memphis-based part-time photographer takes creative photography to a whole new level. Not only does he share his photos with his fans on Instagram, but he also posts videos and vlogs on YouTube explaining his techniques so others can further their photo-editing skills. His goal is to teach others what he knows about photography to help take amateur snapshots to the next level!

Highlighting unique Memphis places

 

Connor Ryan enjoys showcasing some of the stand-out sites here in Memphis. Take his Halloween-themed photo tutorial in front of the Mallory-Neely House in the Victorian Village Historic District in downtown Memphis. The wealthiest people in the city lived here after it was built in 1852. The Italian villa-style mansion was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 and became a museum in 1973.

 

Ryan also made a vlog about nature photography at Shelby Farms Park in Memphis. His goal was to take beautiful nature photos for his Instagram account while enlightening his fans about his methods for capturing the perfect shots amongst the trees. He ended up going on a long boarding adventure through the park, and he learned it’s a no-fly zone for drones. Luckily, he was still able to capture some stunning shots from the ground.

 

 

When was the last time you visited the Memphis College of Art in Overton Park? Like many of us, Ryan was disappointed to learn that it will soon be out of commission. New enrollment has drawn to a close, and while the precise wind-down time is still undetermined, college officials anticipate it will only last through May 2020.

To memorialize the location, Ryan decided to take a photo and edit it to incorporate moody lighting.
