At an early age, Rayan was fortunate enough to grow up in the beautiful Mount Liban region of Lebanon. Born and raised in Lebanon until the age of 15, Rayan continues to reference its memory in his work: crystal clear light, rich colors inspired by the country's blue coast and lush green valleys and cascades pooling into cool rivers.
Rayan is renowned for his portrayal of the confidence, strength and natural beauty in women. His passion for photography is deeply rooted in the perdominantly female family that he grew up around. Perfecting the female movement and form in a carefully set stage and light, is one of Rayan’s signature approach to photographing women.
Rayan has worked on high profile projects for clients such as Versace, Bulgari, Guess, Moschino and more. As well editorial commissions by Vogue, Numero, L’Officiel, GQ and more
Rayan is based in New York and Paris
