Over the years, cycling has meant a variety of things to me. It’s been a means of exercise, a way to challenge myself to be better, a chance to socialize with friends and connect more deeply with my husband, and, perhaps most importantly to me, an opportunity to look within and learn more about myself and what I’m capable of – a mediation of sorts. That is the beauty of cycling….it can mean so many different things to different people.
And, that is also why I love to photograph the sport. As with all my photography, I try to capture my impressions of the world and give you a glimpse into it from a new perspective. When I capture the joy, pain, and determination of the riders; the encouragement, support, and revelry of the fans; and the overall passion, competition, and camaraderie of the events …. then I can give you that glimpse into the world of cycling and, perhaps, show you the possibilities of what cycling can mean to you.

Ryan Muncy, contributing Photographer at USA Pro Cycling Challenge 2013
I am a freelance photographer who had an early start in the pursuit of the photojournalism field. After letting it go for some time, I've brought photography back into the thick of it to see where it now may lead.
Growing up with artist parents in Upstate New York, having a life long passion for cycling and photography, has taught me to see the world in a different light. I enjoy showing the way I see the world around me captured in images that are only a fraction of a second frozen in time ... people, music, sports, events, editorial, unique portraits, and even emotion through photography.
I've been with a camera in hand for most of my life in one way or another, and try to capture images with a documentary, yet artistic with a photojournalistic sense. As my quest continues to evolve, I like to stick with a style that looks as if were taken out of the news pages from years ago -- often gritty, and just shooting from the hip.
I grew up in Syracuse, NY and received my BA at State University of New York College at Buffalo in 1994 studying Journalism, Public Relations and Advertising.
