“I thrive on catching action & atmosphere as they converge in a narrative moment. It is the convergence between myself, the subject & the camera – how we got there & what happened once we met – that is exciting. It is an act of life happening…” 

I am available for assignment, domestic or abroad.

. . Hello to you !
My name is Ashley, and yes - my full name really does rhyme - I'm a photographer, traveler, & environmentalist. I am in love with my work, with relishing the present moment, & the full spectrum of coming adventures ahead. I'm enchanted by travel and the journeys it brings, near and far..
By the meaning & story
every moment,
bend of light, and person I encounter
has the chance to give, and I the privilege to communicate when I have my camera in hand.

I share my time between living in Los Angeles // & Traveling the Road:Globe.
I grew up in the creative-infused enclaves of Northern California, & Hawai'i.
From an early age I had a deep love for and grew up thriving off of nature, art, and - ohh yes! - being taught that age-old adage that 'only your imagination is the limit...'
But from a preternaturally young age I was also instinctively entranced with the seeing of the world around me.. and in turn interpreting & sharing both the empathic, & intellective value of my experiences.


I work in Portrait, Travel, Music, Editorial, Lifestyle & Environmental photography, as well as being educated and continually engaging in Documentary and Fine Art works.

My pieces have spanned exhibition & publication from the walls of the UK's illustrious National Portrait Gallery, to National Geographic, to working with brands like Free People. I have lived in the US, England, & Italy.
I graduated from the University of California Santa Cruz, with degrees in Environmental Studies & Documentary Photography.

I am a proud Fellow of
The Arctic Circle, & it's 2015 Summer Expedition - Living & working aboard a Barquentine Tall Ship, a select group of international artists & scientists explore, create & innovate in the Arctic Circle in Svalbard, sailing just 10 degrees latitude from the North Pole.
- My project research included a Visiting Readership at Oxford University
