Ryan J Murphy, Photographer of Race Rocks

Ryan J Murphy wrote some information about himself.

Ryan J Murphy photographer for Amazing British ColumbiaMy name is Ryan Murphy, and I come from Musgravetown, Newfoundland. I first came to BC in 1999 as a student at Pearson College. Now I am here as the Eco Guardian and resident marine scientist at the Race Rocks Ecological Reserve.

Photography has become my passion both on land and under the sea. I find it it an incredibly powerful tool to communicate my research and educate my students. Both my homes have rewarded me with amazing wildlife encounters and mesmerizing landscapes, and I am very glad to be able to share these experiences through my work.
