Ryan Welch is the owner and Creative Director of AO Films, a production company and creative collective.

Coming from a long line of story tellers, Ryan’s great-grandfather told stories with artists’ pencils. His grandfather with film – and his father with words. While he maintains an interest in all three, his passion lies in telling stories using images.

Ryan has a very ‘hands on’ approach towards his craft, which has led him to direct and shoot award-winning stories that are intuitive and personal, while blending narrative and documentary filmmaking.

He lives in the Eugene, Oregon with his wife, Susan and kids, Cade and Avin. He enjoys watching his kids play sports and spends as much time as possible in the mountains of Oregon.
