JC Ridley is the long-time team photographer for the Miami Hurricanes and Florida Atlantic Owls, with over 25 years of experience in the photography industry. His images have been published in numerous publications, including Sports Illustrated. JC even spent seven seasons as a contributing photographer for the National Football League.
Originally raised on a small family farm in WEST Michigan, this former farm-boy has called Florida his home for over 30 years, but enjoys spending part of the year in the Pacific Northwest, shooting waterfalls and hanging out at craft breweries.
JC discovered the tranquility and solitude of hiking and documenting waterfalls while on a trip after the death of his son in 2012. To date, he has visited over 300 waterfalls in the United States and Canada.
