Our Story

Both born and raised in San Francisco, Nick and Ryland met in high school in the city. It wasn’t until years later where they teamed up to start Roots Visuals. The vision for Roots Visuals has always been to push the boundaries of visual art and do it to create an impact on the world, communities and individuals.

Ryland is a published photographer and also works as a videographer who is constantly pursuing new creative ideas and looking for ways to collaborate with companies and other artists.

Nick went to the Academy of Art in San Francisco where he occasionally teaches and tutors upcoming artists. Nick has become a master behind the computer and transforms good videos into incredible visual stories.

Together they have worked with fortune 50 companies, startups, celebrities, influencers and non profits.
