Ryan Yeates

Ryan Yeates has been dancing, singing and acting pretty much since he was born.  And while many Aussie kids grew up with The Wiggles on TV, Ryan literally grew up with The Wiggles.  He began his career playing Junior Purple Wiggle Lachy from an early age. Since then, he’s appeared in Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, Pippin, Carmen and Playing Beattie Bow.

Now, at 17, Ryan is appearing as Ellis Grouch in Nickelodeon’s Rock Island Mysteries.  He was just about to jet up to Queensland to begin filming the second series and needed some fresh headshots as he’s grown so much!  We quickly scheduled a session before he headed off to pack his bags.

Ryan is lovely soul; professional, intelligent and sensitive.  As he’s maturing into edgier roles now, we wanted to play with the light and dark during our headshot session together.  I so appreciated Ryan’s openness and trust as we explored different moods within the images we created.

Ryan’s mum, dancer and choreographer Leanne Halloran shared about their headshot experience:

“Our experience was one of professionalism and full of creative ideas. Ryan was made to feel relaxed and comfortable in both the indoor and outdoor locations.  Emma was full of inspiring thoughts and processes to get the best pictures possible.  Emma was very personable and we all had a very positive experience.  The finished product and photo choices were great.”

When I think of the term old soul, I often think of certain children, babies, young people (sometimes animals) I’ve met along my way. They have a centred-ness about them, meet your gaze steadily. It’s like they’re enjoying the adventure of being a human who gets to try out life on Planet Earth for a while.
