Photography with Soul


Ryan Edwardson - Photographer

Documentary and commercial photography and videography. I have photographed in over 30 countries under the most inspirational and challenging of circumstances. Storytelling is my specialty.

  • Documentary photography of emotional moments in the beautiful whirlwind of a wedding. Toronto documentary wedding photography and candid photojournalism.
  • Photo-essays of heartening determination across Canada for the Canadian Cancer Society.
  • Documenting dignity and political uncertainty across Thailand for Amnesty International.
  • Commercial and corporate images for Nissan and Infinity, Tre Stelle, and Source for Sports.
  • Travel photojournalism of Nobel Peace Prize recipient Aung San Suu Kyi rallying in Burma, Japanese geishas moving through cobblestone alleyways in Kyoto, Indian sadhu holy men amidst funeral pyre smoke in Varanasi, farmers working rice paddies in Vietnam, and more.
  • Videography that brings a documentary storytelling to commercial needs.

I pride myself on crafting photographs of beautiful inspiration and human dignity, the emotions and moments that move us, and doing so in the most challenging of situations. Whether dodging bridal bouquets or tear gas, crafting wedding stories or commercial images, it is the ability get the photograph that tells a story. This combination is a rare skill set that I bring to each photographic session. Photography with Soul.      ryan@ryanedwardson.com
