Southern MAryland's Premier Scuba Shop

Ryan teaches our very popular Underwater Photography Workshop and routinely makes our divers better photographers. 

Ryan is currently certified at the PADI Tec 50 level and dives in sidemount configuration. Ryan is also certified on the Dive Rite O2Ptima fully closed circuit rebreather (CCR). He continually pursues additional training and certifications and is currently working towards full technical and cave certification on his rebreather. He enjoys taking advantage of any opportunity he gets to get some diving in, whether it be training locally, relaxing in the warm waters of Bonaire, or looking for that next challenging dive in his journey to further himself.


Ryan was born and raised in Southern Maryland while currently residing and working in Charles County. Owner of RCD Photography, Ryan has a passion for photography which quickly spread into one of his other addictions, scuba. He previously worked for the local media as a photographer with his work appearing in various news outlets such as WUSA 9, Fox news, Good Morning America, and ABC News as well as numerous other local organizations
