Today I had the absolute pleasure to shoot an amazing fine artist by the name of Ashton Howard. Ashton is an artist & designer of ocean imagery. My goal was to portray an artist in his environment and attempt to do his work justice through a photograph. Ashton was very happy with what he saw on camera and at that point I knew I had accomplished my goal. You can see Ashton's work at his website www.ashtonhoward.com.
