Ryan Angel Meza is an American photographer. Born in the Philippines, he was then raised in San Benito, Texas, a small town located just a short distance from a port of entry into Mexico. While most of his peers pursued careers in the medical field or as border patrol agents, Ryan Angel developed a love and passion for media arts while attending San Benito High School. 

In 2004, he relocated to Sacramento, California, where he earned Associate Degrees in Photography and Marketing at Sacramento City College. He later completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Photography at Sacramento State.  Since 2017, Ryan Angel has served as an adjunct instructor at Sacramento City College, teaching portraiture and studio lighting. 

His most notable published works can be found in Sacramento Magazine, Comstock Magazine, The Guardian, and The Wall Street Journal.

Commercial projects include working with clientele such as PayPal, Google, American Express, Loyal for Dogs, Cellular Longevity, Rite Aid, Men’s Warehouse, Hamilton Watch, Premise Data and Soloviev Group. 

Despite the complexity and allure of each project, or client, at the heart of Ryan Angel’s work, there is a celebration of the spirit and strength of the people.
