Ryan is a conservation photojournalist, videographer and biologist. He has most recently worked for National Geographic photographers Paul Nicklen and Cristina Mittermeier and for their ocean conservation non-profit, SeaLegacy.

During his time with SeaLegacy, Ryan has swum with whale sharks in Mexico, navigated through untouched islands pursuing rain wolves, waited patiently in temperate rainforests for spirit bears, and has dove with hammerhead and tiger sharks in The Bahamas.

Having the unique opportunity to work with such influential photographers, Tidman has acquired a highly developed skillset from both expedition fieldwork and office work. Some of these skills include advanced knowledge in Canon, Sony, Nikon, DJI and RED camera systems, remote camera operations, underwater photography and videography experience, aerial photography and videography, campaign management, social media strategy and analytics and an advanced knowledge in the photographic business.

Graduating with a Bachelor’s of Biology from the University of Guelph in Ontario, Ryan soon after partook in the graduate program Environmental Visual Communications offered at the Royal Ontario Museum. He is PADI certified for advanced open water and dry suit diving and holds a Canadian UAV Pilot’s license.

Ryan is always looking for an excuse to get into the action and document and participate in conservation efforts wherever he can. If you would like to work with Ryan, you can reach him through the Contact Page on his website.
