Ashley Noelle is a self taught photographer and artist based in Los Angeles, California. At 15 she signed her first modeling contract and was introduced to the world of fashion and photography. At 18 she moved to Los Angeles and by 21 was done with modeling and had found a new love, photographic printing. She worked at the most prestigious lab in Los Angeles and was printing for the greatest photographers in the world - Patrick Demarchelier, Matthew Rolston, David Lachapelle, Peggy Sirota and Steven Klien, to name a few. As well as top publications like Vogue, GQ, ELLE, Architectural Digest, Vanity Fair, Harpers and others. In early 2007 Ashley stepped behind the camera and applied a mix of film techniques to the new medium of digital photography. This foundation in film/analog photography was further reinforced by her mentor Julius Shulman who would always say "You are not shooting anything! You are creating a photograph. You are capturing a moment, a perspective". Julius photographed most of his architectural work with a view camera, and when Ashley was given the opportunity to photograph for the artist/developer Mohamed Hadid she invested in what has become her best friend, HENRY. A modern view camera with bellows and movements, but a digital back instead of film. While she does photograph with handheld cameras, she still prefers to work with Henry. The pace of shooting with a view camera allows for the art of photography to come out during a session.
Her passions are portraits and photographing her beloved Los Angeles. www.thelosangelesseries.com.com
