"it is easy to point out the dirt in people, but what many cannot do is pull out the gold that is usually hidden beneath" - Ryan Birk

Risen Life Photography

-Ryan Birk

Risen Life uses photography and Videography to capture the beauty of every moment. The name comes from a few places found in scripture. Before you check out, hear me out. We've all heard the story of how Yahushua (Jesus) was raised from the dead. The bible says that we have risen with him from death unto life. And encourages us to then not just live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit and to "mind the things of the Spirit" and to keep your mind on things above (not being a slave to our current situations). There is much more to us than what we see in the physical. And although photos and videos capture the physical world, my hope is to capture the life and Spirit inside of us that shines so bright. The personality and beauty in everything we see in our every day lives. To bring inspiration and joy.

With the theme "risen life," I am a firm believer in second chances, new life and new beginnings. No matter how much ugly we've seen in our world or no matter how many people may have seen the dirt in our lives, I hope to bring out the gold that is within that most do not give an opportunity to see.

We were therefore buried with Him through baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may walk in newness of life. - Romans 6:4
