Images are created in your headI have taken pictures for National Geographic in South Africa and my reports and contributions have been published in various other national and international newspapers and magazines. I am a member of the photographers’ agency Visum and an appointed member of the prestigious German Photographic Association (DGPh). So far, my work has taken me to 51 countries and 218 world heritage sites on all five continents. As a lecturer I give photo courses at various adult education centres, the Environment Photo Festival in Zingst and some courses in Prerow, Sassnitz and Hamburg for artistravel and photojourney with Diamir from Dresden. In Berlin, Düsseldorf, London, and other places there have been exhibitions of photo projects such as "Iberian People", "Saskatchewan", "Black, White & Coloured" and "London Eyes". Among other places, my pictures have been on show in the Frankfurt Leica Gallery and the Peugeot Unter den Linden Gallery in Berlin. Next to capturing people, I have a particular fondness for cats, flowers and garden art. Here I can indulge in my special fondness for macro photography and showcase all of it on my websites www.nicolas-van-ryk.de and www.luchslicht.de. I therefore work with a range of equipment that includes various 7-300 mm (14-600 mm small picture format) Zuiko lenses and E-M1 Mark II and PEN-F bodies. Since I have my roots in classic reportage photography, authenticity, atmosphere and sympathy are the catchwords for my work.
