"so much to learn from, to be inspired by, and await whatever's next to come. like all the best photographers, he's changed the way i look at the world, and that's the highest compliment i can give.."

"Ansel's photography exists on the fine edge between light and darkness. It is color and clarity.. softness and subtlety. It is the real deal. The world is transformed through his eyes, and those fortunate enough to see that world he creates will understand beauty on an entirely different level.
Trust me.. you want to be one of those fortunate ones. So explore his photography, and be amazed.
His images are epics, and he is larger than life. And top of all of that, he is one cool dude."

"Holy cow! I didn't wrote you a testimonial! I'm disappointed with myself. ;-)
Anyway, Ansel's work is perfect. More than perfect and I'm not overacting. He really is something. His work is so inspiring and professional. Thank you for sharing beautiful parts of life with us! :-)
Be here and shine forever."

"Ansel's pictures always display an enjoyable blend of poetry, aesthetic, consistancy and personal vision. He has also unquestionably become a master at the art bokeh photography. Refreshing and inspiring. Bravo!"

"master of organic, euphoric imagery - ansel olson captures what us mere mortals can only dream of."
13th May, 2008
"Ansel's design sensibilities flow through his work in a gorgeous, subtle way. I admire his photography so thoroughly as it is what I strive to achieve: finding beauty in the ordinary and injecting photographs with rich narratives and playful contemplation. I sincerely find myself wanting to bask in everything he uploads. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to see these little windows onto Ansel's world. His work is so genuine, yet refined and carefully, sensitively approached. He brings the mundane to life and he inspires and challenges me daily to look closer and find magic in the spaces in-between."
