The Fenix Team

Learn About Your Photographers

Our team of portrait artists is comprised of the top talents in the Charlotte region. Each is expertly trained and qualified in our house portrait style — which is inspired by the cinematic closeup and applies the conventions of headshots for actors and models to all manner of professions. But if you have a different vision, we’re more than capable of deviating to match other styles of portraits or replicate a business’s own internal guidelines.

Everyone who works at our studio has been where you are — wanting transformative change and reaching for something new.

Ryan Sumner

Creative Director

Ryan started Fenix Fotography as a side hustle—but after the Great Recession halted an earlier career, he refocused his life and decided to follow a new set of dreams. He leveraged skills he’d learned creating headshots for model-actor agencies into regular work for lifestyle magazines, creating fashion editorials and other types of news stories before transitioning to business periodicals where Ryan created hundreds of photographic essays featuring business, civic, and cultural leaders. Ryan has studied with some of the world’s top master photographers, including one of New York’s best-known headshot maker.  His specialty areas are on-location studio headshots, environmental executive portraits, business-in-action photojournalism, and images of aircraft and architecture.
