Buy Local (Talent): Ryan C. Jones

This guy does good great work. Ryan is one part philosopher, one part visual architect, and one part artist. He shoots a lot of weddings (gotta pay the bills, right) but is going to make a big splash on the music scene with the way he can capture sound, movement and experience with his lens.

I've had the pleasure to know Ryan for about 6 months. In that time, he has proven to be a great asset to the community, a lover of local music and supporter of most things local. He pours himself into his work and says that he has a nasty habit of becoming friends with his clients (not really a bad thing, right?).


Below is more information about Ryan C. Jones.

He aims to do more than merely take a picture. Ryan will tell a story that is meaningful, creative and just a little different than what you might expect.

He is a boomerang. Ryan moved to Southern California with the intention of never coming back, but after seeing the progress of the artistic and photographic community in Fresno, he made the decision to move back after three years away and hopefully help raise the bar for what's considered good art in the Central Valley. He's been back for a little over a year and a half now and, in his words, "it was hands-down the best decision I've ever made."


  1. Clovis appreciates Ryan: He's a member of the Clovis Chamber and has a cozy office tucked into an almost secret location off the main strip in Old Town.

    Looking forward to future installments Travis.


  2. His studio is great. Meeting there tomorrow and then heading to Trelio for a quick branding session. Clovis is pretty cool like that.

  3. Ryan is an amazing photographer, and I can't think of a better choice to kick off your list of local talent!

  4. Thanks for jumping in the mix, CC. Local talent needs to be promoted.

  5. Buy Local (Talent) is a great idea and we are always looking to network and discover new talent that might help us in the future. Thanks Travis and I look forward to meeting Ryan down the road.

  6. Ryan is a true Fresno/Clovis success story. Obviously he saw value in coming back and I'm sure glad he did. He's not just a great fellow photographer, but a great new friend to me too.

  7. Many thanks to Travis for spotlighting local business owners; I'm honored to be a part of it. Beth, Craig, and Creative Cube, thanks so much for your continued support and friendship, and Miles, I definitely look forward to meeting you in the near future.
