Ryan Howard is a professional videographer and photographer. The video started at college when he was sixteen and the photography has developed from that. He started taking photos for Instagram and “got a little bit addicted to the likes and the comments!”. Now he estimates his work is split fifty-fifty between his regular work and Instagram.

And what he’s best known for on Instagram is his moody London landscape. “I like dark, moody days. Dark grey skies, clouds, I don’t like sun, I don’t like sunsets, I don’t like sunrises. I don’t like colour,” he smiles.
