We have fun creating your photos and videos, shouldn’t you? We’ve got 65 years of experience, and we’re always upgrading our knowledge and equipment, so you can relax and know that we’ll get the job done in our fun, friendly and professional way. We promise you the Hayman experience:
A third generation Hayman photographer, Ryan began his tenure at the studio assisting his father and other studio photographers on set and scanning 4X5 color transparencies. In so doing, Ryan developed an appreciation for both traditional, “old school” methods as well as the benefits of innovation and re-imagined, more efficient processes. After spending a decade learning every aspect of the studio, Ryan became the third generation President in 2013. To meet the growing and changing needs of his clients, Ryan evolved the studio into a video and creative studio. Combining his dad’s hands-on production lessons with the implicit lessons he’s learned after two decades of connecting with clients, Ryan’s problem-solving prowess is unmatched, as are his expectations for a good client experience and the highest quality deliverables.
Outside the studio, he serves on the boards of Leadership York and the Appell Center for the Performing Arts. He also enjoys golf, riding on tractors with his son, Owen, and watching the Mandalorian with his daughter, Sadie.
Cathy brings over 20 years of marketing, client relations and business development experience to Hayman Studio. She’s passionate about meeting people and developing relationships with her outgoing personality. Cathy has spent majority of her professional career networking and connecting with business owners and professionals throughout the central Pennsylvania region. As a community leader she has served on many non-profit boards, civic organizations, and committees: YWCA York, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Rotary Club of York, Penn State York Women’s Philanthropic Network (WPN), Executive Women International (EWI), and York Collage Community Advisory Board to name a few.
During her free time, she enjoys golfing, cooking, walking, and spending time with Jim and their recused German Shepherd dog Mocha Joy.
With a PhD in rhetoric and communication and over 20 years of professional writing, editing, and teaching under her belt, Madeline provides the studio and its clients with communication strategy, support services, and general wordsmithery. In addition to script and copy writing, technical editing and proofreading, and creative content development, Madeline is the team’s girl Friday, making sure each i is dotted and t is crossed (literally and figuratively).
On her lunch break, Madeline works on her novel; on the weekends, she lifts heavy weights and coaches national-level youth weightlifters.
While working on his degree in Digital Communications at Lebanon Valley College, Ben took an introductory course in videography. The rest, as they say, is history, and Hayman Studio is the proud beneficiary of Ben’s multi-faceted skillset. As our “Jack of All Trades,” Ben bucks the metaphor by being masterful at everything he does: editing, animation, photography, and even social media management.
When Ben isn’t slinging Premiere Pro, After Effects, or DaVinci Resolve, he’s rooting for the Dallas Cowboys or nerding out on Star Wars.
John brings over 30 years of design experience to Hayman Studio, and it’s the very best kind of experience: the kind that is driven by a passion for the craft. Every project, from the most basic postcard to the most complex product catalogue and all the sophisticated websites in between, John brings enthusiasm and an unparalleled, careful attention to detail. His favorite part of design work is the satisfaction of tackling an especially challenging project, taking clients’ imaginative ideas and bringing them to life.
John wrangles the Adobe Creative Suite with finesse and agility, and loves spending time outdoors fishing, camping, and backpacking in his free time.
Though formally trained in digital arts technology, Alex’s creative talent cannot be placed in any single box. Deft both behind the camera as well as behind the editing work station, his forte is in motion graphics and text animation. Alex can deconstruct the most complex processes and create an animation video that communicates clearly and effectively. With over 10 years of experience in video production, his quiet sense of humor and quick, critical thinking epitomize the larger team culture of the studio.
When he’s not making great videos, he’s watching great films or trying his best to make authentic vegetarian Indian food.
Lauren Hayman is the Studio’s resident copywriter and copyeditor, though never both at the same time! A graduate of York College of Pennsylvania’s Professional Writing Program, Hayman researched and created methodologies for communication audits in small and medium sized businesses. Lauren believes that good, purposeful communication should be accessible to everyone. She is especially proud of her organization-empowering process that turns unspoken organizational values and knowledge into words.
Lauren spent a former life communicating the value of integrated waste management practices. As such, she is a PA Certified Recycling Professional (CRP) and a subject matter expert in sustainability, recycling, organics, and waste management practices.
Our clients know the Hayman Experience elevates their brands, images and videos. They come to Hayman Studio because they love our commitment to their success, our light-hearted, professional process, and the stunning results.
One of our favorite kind of projects here at Hayman Studio is the kind that help people, and in the case of Taylor Retirement Services, that’s exactly what Matt Taylor wanted: a platform to help people understand the basic principles of money, finance, investing, taxes, and insurance. He saw an opportunity to provide information for people going into and through retirement in a way that takes the sting out of some of those more difficult conversations.
What We Did:
Penn State REACH (Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health) needed to develop a community-wide campaign to promote influenza vaccinations. REACH promotes healthy lifestyles and works to reduce health disparities among Hispanics via stronger community-clinical linkages. The Hayman team produced a range of digital and print assets to help them get the word out about the flu shot.
