Ryan Spence ’24 shares the story of his iconic videography journey

How did you start videography/photography?

I have always had an eye for creative media and once I had finally bought a camera I could put my ideas to work. I was motivated to make creative media by my dad because he works in the industry. He creates storytelling videos for companies, so his experience in the industry inspired me to do it.


Where do you see your videography heading? Are there any new styles or subjects you want to explore?

I hope to do more storytelling and documentary-style videos with athletes. I see myself being a part of a college athletics media team or shooting professional athletes in the future.

Describe your style in 3 words

Hype, Cinematic, Professional

Are there any photographers or videographers who inspire you?

 Instagram influencers who work at big schools like the University of Georgia and USC inspire me to push my creativity.
