I realized just before I met Randall for our most recent shoot at Toronto’s fabulous Thompson Hotel that we first met nearly a decade ago, when Randall was barely drinking age. It was the summer of 2006 and I was involved with photographing various events for the Miss Grand Prix competition in Toronto. At the final qualifying event, Randall showed up in her nerdy glasses, brown bikini, and adorable bubbly voice and began to fill out the application form. I said to myself right then and there, “I need to know this girl”.
We’ve built a great friendship since then, getting together every now and again to make some amazing pictures under the moniker RSQUARED (Randall + Ryan). We no longer live in the same province, but we got together one last time in August to continue our picture-making tradition. Our best ever, I think!
Great job, R2!
