Agromeck photo editor Katherine Hoke said:
Ryan’s environmental portrait of Fullsteam Brewery’s Chris Davis is dramatic and well-executed. By photographing the subject in a storage room rather than at the bar, the viewer gets to see a part of the brewery they might not normally have access to. Davis’s confident position on the kegs makes it clear that Ryan took time to talk to Davis and make sure he was comfortable. Although the focus photo is a bit soft, the photographer’s use of lighting and filling of the frame was very effective.
