Ashley Batz became interested in creating at a very young age as she wrote, casted, and directed large scale productions in lieu of a one page essay. Born in Marin County, CA, she grew up with a strong Italian heritage (she speaks and desperately is looking for pen pals!) and a deep love for exploring the world of art. She shoots portraits, fashion, lifestyle, and social content for brands that take her everywhere. She loves taking hip hop class, buying too many magazines, scouting hidden gems for locations, finding ways to bring Annie Leibovitz up in conversation, and dreaming up big shoots.
