Ryan Van Poederooyen

Ryan Van Poederooyen, more commonly known for his drumming role in the Devin Townsend Project, has influenced me in so many ways including the fact that I am a drummer myself. The drum clinic he did with Thump music was one of the most inspiring clinics I have attended. 

Ryan reminded me how to set goals. He had me thinking about what goals were in fact important to me and that I was going to aspire to achieve. What I am doing now, for example working on my destination photography goals is in part the result of the decisions I made within that clinic. 

As well as teaching drums Ryan loves to teach students how to succeed in their career paths and he loves to help motivate and inspire others to achieve their dreams. 

Please see below the slide show for Mark Randall's comment, from Thump Music about my work of the clinic; 

Laine, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the support and absolute professional approach you took to Thump Musics recent tour with The Devin Townsend Projects - Ryan Van Poederooyen. Not only did you take some insane photos showcasing Ryan in full flight on the kit, plus moments of deep thought but also some amazing eye to detail shots from in and around the stage. You captured the evening perfectly. The photographic folders you present to both Ryan and myself absolutely left our jaws dropping. 


Consider yourself booked for all of our future tour engagements in Queensland. I have no hesitation in recommending you to any future clients (feel free to pass on my number). Your photos will shortly be displayed on our website (www.thumpmusic.com.au) for all of our supporters to view. Thank you once again.
