In our postmodern, image-driven milieu, even the most sensational scenes can barely elicit a reaction. Yet, when the active elements of mystery and humanity intersect, images can reach right out and touch us. It is with passion and perception that Ashley Barker arrives at this intersection with her photography. Formal training at the Western Academy of Photography and a grand sense of scale, born of her Alberta roots, inform her visual perspective. An accomplished commercial artist at only 26, Barker’s photos are in demand with the world’s foremost publishers of snowboarding, skiing and action culture. She loves the mountains and works fervently to gain skill and experience shooting in the alpine environment. As the senior photographer for Transworld Snowboarding Ashley lives in the heart of the industry, Whistler. And it is out there, far from the manmade constructs of so-called civilization that her passion finds expression. Skilled at both lifestyle and studio photography, we are beyond proud to represent this emerging talent.
