Ryan Manuel

“I am a large advocate for wool when it comes to outdoor adventure.”

Not only does Ryan work in the backcountry areas of NM, AZ, UT, and CO as a Backcountry Environmental Biologist with Northern Arizona University, he is also constantly traveling to shoot both outdoor adventure and travel photography. He is always outside and working/living in adverse weather conditions where he is almost always wearing a wool base layer. Says Ryan, “Wool is by far my favorite fabric for both the city and for outdoor recreating.”

When he does find some “off time”, he spends it trail running, climbing, mountaineering, and backpacking in the U.S. and other countries.
