Originally from Toronto, Ryan Pallotta moved to Los Angeles directly after college to pursue his love for film and photography. Having always been inspired by fashion photographers & feature filmmakers who first made their mark in music videos, Ryan began his career in LA assisting various directors. As a result, he linked up with Anthony Mandler, a director and fashion photographer whom he had admired for a long time.
Ryan takes a very photographic and cinematic approach to music videos, focusing on beauty and simplicity. Inspired by the work of great fashion photographers, this is reflected in his stunning visuals. His directing credits include music videos for Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, Robin Thicke, Jason Derulo, Faith Evans, Ne-Yo and more.
