WORDS FROM ASHLEY:
"I love everything about photography. From initial chats with individuals about there 'silly modest visions',or brands totally lost with zero ideas, I'm right there with you from start til your billboard is up and running in time-square (or online :) ) The 'buzz', the excitement of storytelling never wears off for me. I feed off of people and open environments that promote success. I am so fortunate to have discovered photography when I was still a teenager and over the years I have made hundreds of mistakes. I've gained so much knowledge and experience and yet I still have so much more to grow. These decades of passion have introduced me to many talented individuals of now whom I call my TEAM. We are fully competent in bringing your ideas to life, from start to finish. We are creative problem solvers, from pr-production, to photo-retouching and social delivery. No idea, no dream is too big, we eat that sh*t for breakfast and dinner. Let's work together!" -Ashley
