About Ryan VanDaele

Hi, I'm Ryan and I am a hobbyist nature photographer. Most of my work is of birds and insect macros. I currently use a Canon 90D with a few lenses and use natural light. I try as much as possible to not disturb the subjects I photograph as they go about their business, and to identify their species. Postprocessing is done in Aperture, and the engine running this site was custom built by me.

Outside of my photography I am also web developer at the University of Michigan. I built the Happening @ Michigan events calendar and the Sessions @ Michigan registration system.

Thanks for visiting. Please e-mail me if you have any questions about my photography or work.
