About Ryan


Since first picking up an iPhone in 2010, Ryan Pernofski has spent the last 8 years creating and sharing ocean-based photo and video work on his Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Vine & YouTube channels, all of which accrued a large international following (over half a million in total). Ryan released his first book 'Salt & Light’ in December 2016, which became a #1 best seller in many categories including Photo Journalism internationally on Amazon. In mid 2017, a photograph of Ryan’s was featured in Apple’s OOH global #shotoniPhone campaign and in August, his ocean photography & videos were featured in the initial launch of Apple’s official Instagram account. ‘SEASONS’ is Ryan’s latest photo journal series, featuring a photo a day of every season for an entire year. The first book of the four-part series ’90 Days of Summer’ was released December 2017 with the rest of the series releasing mid-late 2018.
