Ashley Batz became interested in creating at a very young age as she chose to write, cast, and direct large scale productions in lieu of a required one page essay.
Born just outside of San Francisco, Ashley grew up with a strong connection to her Italian heritage and an intense drive for self-expression. Ashley’s approach to image making from a young age is rooted in the belief that everyone should feel celebrated in this world.
Having faced years of rejection to assist due to being a woman, she was finally offered an apprenticeship with Art Streiber. With the opportunity to work on large sets, Ashley solidified that photographing people was her calling.
She set the bar high for celebrity portraiture while at Bustle Magazine, infused life, soul, and a new art direction at Everlane, and still pushes for inclusivity and representation for every shoot that arrives at her desk.
With dedicated footholds between California and New York, Ashley is excited to travel wherever the job takes
