Photography by Michael R. Ash
Michael Ash has been an avid photographer for nearly forty years. He grew up in an age when you had to understand to capture light on film and how to reproduce the memory of that photo in the wet-lab darkroom. Building on those early skills, Mike adapted his techniques to the digital age by producing eye-popping photos that recreated what Mike saw and felt when he captured the original image.
Mike's photographic adventures have taken him to various parts of the world including the refinement of Germany and Paris, the enchantment of the Pacific North West, the desert beauty of Utah and Arizona in places like Moab, Canyonlands, Monument Valley, Snow Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Paria Canyon, and the Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness. His search for photographic felicity has led him to the lush allure of Kauai and the majestic grandeur of the Wyoming Tetons (Popular Photography even asked to publish one of his Teton photos). Some of his expeditions have brought him into encounters with exciting wildlife.
As an international selling author, he enjoys circulating his excitement with those who share his fervor—which is why he also frequently teaches photography classes and is currently perusing plans for photographic workshops.
