Hi, I'm Ashley! I'm a diver and underwater photographer based in beautiful San Diego, California.
I dive (and hold the most advanced certification for) a rEvo rebreather. I am also a certified SDI Divemaster, and I am available to lead local recreational dive tours off the Marissa charter boat in San Diego.
From the magnetism of deep historical shipwrecks to the charm of strange sea creatures, the ocean continues to enchant me ever deeper into its grasp. My goal as an underwater photographer is to document the seldom-seen artifacts of our past, and I am currently engaged in deep water wreck diving expeditions in excess of 100m/300ft at the Channel Islands off the coast of Southern California.
Through my underwater photography, I aim to encourage education, conservation, and exploration of our underwater world.
I punctuate my diving habit with periodic stays in Killington, Vermont's Green Mountains-the only landlocked place I want to be!
My work has been featured in various magazines, newspapers, and commercial advertising publications. I am also available to speak on technical diving and underwater photography. If you would like to work with me on your underwater project, please drop me a line through the contact page.
My weekly newsletter, The Monday Blues, helps ease your transition back into the work week with underwater photos, underwater photography tutorials, and glimpses into our amazing underwater world. I'd love for you to join us! Just drop your email into the form below, and I promise to keep it safe and never spam you.
