Ryan Hope specialises in marrying stunning visuals with a heavy fashion influence with gritty edge of music videos. The British born but LA based director came to the industry from a Fine Art background and demonstrates a unique blend of chic styling and arresting cinematography that seamlessly manages to reference classic editorial touches while remaining contemporary.
He has an inherent sense to make things feel fresh, never following trends. His work is often recognised for its extremely daring cinematic techniques and striking imagery. A combination that has seen him earn many high profile admirers. These include everyone from premium brands to pop icons and from huge US rappers to hip indie acts and everyone in between. Ryan’s clients include Absolut, Beats By Dre, River Island, Pharrell Williams, George Michael, Kate Moss, 2Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, The Weeknd, Garage Magazine, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Kooks and Alpines.
The sheer variety of Ryan’s clients demonstrates that despite its abstract touches, bold looks, it has universal appeal which is probably his most unique attribute. His feature tattoo/art documentary ‘Skin’ – a commission for Dasha Zhukova’s Garage Magazine is probably his most famous work and was touted as an underground hit and met with critical acclaim on the worlds biggest blogs. It features the work of Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, The Chapman Brothers and Raymond Pettibon.
In 2014 Ryan has completed Guinness and Hugo Boss spots for AMV and Grey UK respectively whilst working on his new electronic music record label due to launch in Feb 2015.
