Seamus A Ryan is represented by the Atlas Gallery and has done work for among others Nike, BBC, and British Airways. Ryan performs "Sunday shoots", where he opens his studio to passers-by who want him to take their picture. On one such occasion, he photographed playwright Tom Stoppard, and the picture was purchased by London's National Portrait Gallery.
Courtesy of Atlas Gallery - Seamus Ryan’s photographs of flowers and plants follow in the tradition of Edward Weston, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Karl Blossfeldt. Ryan searches for form and character in the twists and folds of petals, stems and plant foliage, in effect creating a unique portrait of each specimen.
