Welcome to RyOutside & S l o w S h u t t e r B l i n k i n g Photography...
My name is Ryan Michelle and I'm an avid outdoorswoman, passionate photographer, writer & life-long adventure seeker. These images share the stories of who I am & the truths of my world.
I grew up in the hills of Pennsylvania & spent many years exploring the backwoods of my home state along miles of streams & singletrack. In 2009, I fell in love with the west after a short stint in the Colorado high country & found a home in a southern CO alpine desert by 2014. By 2020, my life shifted and I now dedicate time to a Central PA farm and CO adventures.
My life is fueled by adventure & a passion to seek answers to unknown questions - the questions that draw our souls into the wildest of places where we can truly learn what it is to Live.
I have had the opportunity to contribute words and images to great projects and publications like Elevation Outdoors, Suthwest Fly Fishing, Trout Unlimited, Upper Rio Grande Guide & more. Please check out my Freelance and Contact pages for more information.
Thanks for stopping by...
