me1Hi Everyone! I’m Ryan Gearhart, artist and owner of North Star Photographs … that’s me in the picture. This is my 18th year photographing people! Through the years, my experiences along my photographic journey have naturally led me to study, practice, and LOVE the art of portrait journalism. Weddings and Portraits are my absolute passion. I strive for a creative, unposed looking result that reflects authenticity and good taste. My journey started early with film and an analog camera. As a teenager, I found that learning how the manual camera captures light was not only fascinating, but essential for consistently taking good pics. These days, I’m Based in Northern Michigan with my excellent family of four … seven including doggies. My work in photography allows me to travel throughout this great state, utilizing it’s beauty the best that I can. I love interacting with my clients, exhibiting kindness and delivering extra special photographs along the way. 


I love and get inspired by…
