Hi! I’m Ryan Grae Paraggio,
I am a videographer and photographer serving Sonoma County, Napa County and surrounding San Francisco Bay Area locations. I also travel further for projects from time to time - whether it's within California, back east, or somewhere in between.
I started my photography and video production career in New York and recently moved to the Bay Area. I'll be revamping my website and working hard to establish my business here while I settle into my new surroundings.
I provide High Definition Video and Photography services for businesses, clubs/organizations and private use. I have extensive experience in photojournalism, motor sports / action sports, and event services. I've operated my own business for more than 6 years.
My work includes:
I've photographed a number of major automotive racing series inlcuding American LeMans, Rolex Grand Am, Red Bull Global Rallycross, Trans-AM; the list goes on, but suffice it say - I love photography and the challenge of action photography makes it all the more exciting.
My work has been published internationally and featured on the cover of Photography Week Magazine, in Practical Photography, various editorial pieces and book print.
I've worked some of the biggest live entertainment events in the US - since 2012 I've been the official event photographer for New York City's Times Square New Years Eve - and I've have been lucky to work with some the biggest names in entertainment. I believe every project deserves the same level of attention and quality results.
Like many photographers, I also enjoy photographing landscapes and nature. Waterfalls - because they relax me. Mountains - because they make me feel small. And animals because, well, who doesn’t like animals?
In addition to various private event print sales available with my photography services, I occasionally offer art prints and some of my favorite action photos for sale here. Please visit the Art Prints page for current options.
You can also reach me about prints or licensing other images you may find here which are not currently in the Art Prints gallery.
