Ryan Daniel is one of the coolest chicks out there. She twirls fire, speaks Romanian, always throws the best parties, and is known as Mamma Mango in some circles. Originally from KC, this Midwest girl has been all over the world. She spent 2006-2008 in Moldova with the Peace Corps, then taught little Buddhist monks English in Northern India. Ryan leads an awesomely crazy life and continues to set the bar higher and higher. She definitely knows her shit. She is currently working as an event planner in Chicago.

This shot was done on a roof in Ukrainian Village in Chicago right at sunset. I used a beauty dish as my keylight and a stripbox from behind to accent her arm and lower chin. Really turned out great.
