About Me

A poet once told me, 'Ashley, you're an artist not when the world says you're an artist, but when you are compelled to make art, when it hurts to not make art, and when you look at the mundane and regular but YOU see art...' Thank you Julieta, that pep talk changed my perception and helped me embrace my artist-self.
Two decades, dozens of trips, and a million shutter clicks later here we are with Ashley's Fine Art Photography. I am honored that you're here, and I'm honored to be able to share some of the many amazing, beautiful, caught-my-eye, pulled-on-my-heart-strings images that I've been able to capture. I hope you find photos that speak to you, cause you to pause and feel, and will remind you of the beauty and complexity in the world.


Inspiration: Fortunately, as someone with an 'artist's brain' inspiration has come to me from fabulously varied sources-- from a misogynistic comment in a hostel in Colombia sparked the Breasts & Chests & Fruit photo series (as a form of reclamation); to the dappled light in a Hawaiian jungle landing 'just so' on a spectacular leaf, to having the skills for long exposure photography and the friends to hike up to a waterfall with me.


Techniques: The simplicity and difficulty of photography is reflected in the name itself; photography means 'writing with light.' How beautiful is that? Taking the time, practicing the skills and investing in education and equipment is usually what separates artists from hobbyists; and I have spent a great deal of my life invested in learning how to write with light in a myriad of ways depending on the subject and the intent of the photograph.


Career Highlights: Awards and gallery shows withstanding, my favorite career highlights were speaking with some of the women who modeled for Breasts & Fruit about how much that experience helped them see themselves in a new, powerful, strong, beautiful light. And the other was while showing the first iteration of the Breasts & Fruit collection a breast cancer survivor approached me, tears in her eyes, but glowing from within; she showed me her mastectomy scar and said, '...seeing your photos, imagining myself in your photos, lets me know I will be able to love my body again...' Art is transformational!
