Ruddy honed his skill as a photojournalist by working as an Associated Press stringer in New York while covering journalism events. He has since worked with publications including The New York Times, Fast Company and BET, Ebony, ESPN Magazine, and Essence.
Ruddy is also known for documenting Dancehall culture across the world, having traveled as far as Brazzaville in the Congo to document how Jamaicans and other dancers use the language of dance as a tool of activism.
In October 2012, Ruddy was asked to take over The New Yorker's Instagram account in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. He has also showcased Bed-Stuy (and Brooklyn as a whole) with his 'Black Portraiture' or 'I Can't Breathe' series on Instagram.
Ruddy has experimented with interpretative photography, preferring to allow the abstract content within the frame to dictate the voice and purpose of the image. His 'Elements' series focuses on "pictorialism," and the blurry picture is said to be his way of transmitting graphic and emotionally raw imagery.
In 2022 Ruddy Roye was named "Artist-in-residence" for the year at the Cleveland Print Room in Cleveland Ohio where he now currently resides.
Ruddy has taught at New York University, the School of Visual Arts, and Columbia University, engaging in conversations with photography students on the rise of Instagram and the changing face of photojournalism. Some of his work has been contextualized as engaging in the conversation of race in policing and the justice system.
