Thanks for popping over to my about page. I’m Taryn, a photographer based in Sydney, Australia with a passion for chocolate, bad TV, and making you look good 😉
My day job for the past 20 years has been making TV shows as an editor for all the major networks. Currently you’ll find me working on your favourite reality show (and apologies in advance if you hate reality 😀 ). But I’ve also worked on everything from music videos to the Olympics, which has taken me to some amazing places around the world.
Photography has been in my bones from an early age, as a teenager I spent hours in the dark winding film onto spools to process and then print in my home darkroom, the smell of developer is one I will never forget! Because colour printing at home was a difficult (and expensive!) procedure I have always had a soft spot for black and white and that remains the same today.
It was only a few years ago that I decided to do photography on a more regular basis, and Taryn Ruig Photography was born. I love taking photos of people, so it was only natural that portraits and weddings are my favourite things to shoot. I like to shoot in natural light in a photojournalistic and candid way, which in turn results in a relaxed client and awesome photos.
On my website you will find my wedding and portrait photography along with my fine art photography. I love to travel and my fine art photography is a reflection of that. My fine art images are available for licensing, please contact me if you want to find out more.
If you wish to book me for a portrait or wedding please head to the relevant section where I go into more detail about my style and prices.
I’m looking forward to meeting you!
