My name is Ryan Richardson. I’m the owner and executive producer of Life Outside Studio, a video production company specializing in the outdoor industry. I’m also a photographer, writer and entrepreneur. Life Outside Online is the culmination of over 10 years of working as an outdoor industry professional.

Adventure Photographer Ryan Richardson has built his life around being outside. Turning passion into occupation, Ryan’s unique vision for authentic storytelling has granted him the opportunity to travel the world creating photos and videos for the biggest names in the outdoors. Ryan’s  photos and videos have been featured on National Geographic Adventure, Canadian Geographic, Discovery Channel, and more.  Highlighted projects include filming for sustainable tourism while swimming with orca in the arctic, trekking 420km self-supported across Iceland for conservation initiatives, and creating educational doc-series for NGO’s in the world’s most remote regions like Namibia and New Zealand.
