Ryan Marais leads Chevron Editing’s photography department. An accomplished photographer and creative artist operating on the Gold Coast, Ryan works towards capturing moments in life that share his experiences with others.

Ryan spent most of his childhood in and around water, swimming, surfing, and surf lifesaving on the Gold Coast’s beaches. These experiences influenced his passion for storytelling through imagery, which he fulfilled by combining photography and water sports. His surf and ocean photography focuses on light, colour and geometry, showcasing a truly breathtaking aspect of nature.

Over time, Ryan migrated from the ocean to manmade constructs, stepping into architectural photography to produce striking images of beautiful residential and commercial spaces. At Chevron Editing, his work combines aesthetics with commercial potential – having Ryan behind the camera means capturing the essence of a particular product or service.

Ryan’s images have been published around the world in print media, major online publications, and various competitions. His portfolio encompasses a combination of hidden nature and elegant architectural structures.

Ryan holds a Bachelor of Digital Media from Griffith University and a Remote Pilot License (RePL) from UAV Training Australia.
