"If you’ve ever told a story, you know you need some reference to draw from, to make that story relatable and convincing. Experiences, memories, facts, opinions, humorous moments and gut wrenching details are all the keys to a good story. But for some of us…how we acquire these tools to do what we do, so we can tell the stories we tell, can come to us in many ways, forms and experiences.
Join us for a conversation with film maker, director and producer, Ryan Ross for look at the inspiration and experiences that power the work he and his team create at Buck Ross. This will be a lively talk with selected personal work and commercial projects.”

Armando is a photographer based out of Denver. He was born and raised in California’s central coast. At the age of 20, he joined the Air Force, serving for 6 years, including a 180-day tour in Balad, Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom. After his service, Armando graduated with a political science degree from Metro State University.
Armando is a versatile photographer who specializes in events coverage and photojournalism. His passion, however, resides in his street-level photography where he is able to connect to his subjects and immerse himself within different cultures.
During his time in Denver, Armando helped co-found Theyshootn, a collective of photographers and videographers. As a group, Theyshootn has hosted several visual-based events, including Winter in America – an exhibit series that brings photography and philanthropy together to speak on topics such as homelessness, drug abuse, and domestic violence from the viewpoint of new up-and-coming artists.
Currently, between his day job with Denver Public Schools and his travels, Armando spends his time documenting the Chicano and lowrider cultures within Denver.
