The Angle On Ashley Jahncke, Photographer


 

SPECIALIZE IN: Making pictures.

DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN THREE WORDS: Always looking up (I hover just above 5’1″).

TAKE US THROUGH YOUR TYPICAL DAY: Typical scares me. I like it when life keeps me guessing. But most days start at dawn and are fueled by lots of strong coffee.

WHAT’S YOUR CREATIVE SPACE LIKE: Wherever my work takes me! I’m at my most creative when I’m out and about shooting – outdoors on location, backstage at a show…I create little spaces for myself wherever I am. The only constants are my sketchbook and my camera, both equally essential.

WHOSE WORK IN YOUR FIELD DO YOU MOST ADMIRE: It’s not that I admire any one person. I admire independence.

INSPIRATIONS OUTSIDE OF YOUR DISCIPLINE: Currently very into the idea of micrography, words fascinate me. Any and all forms of water. Wind. Music. Always music! Natural Light. Negative space. Paintings. People: their faces, their stories. I could go on forever…

FAVORITE PLACE: Underwater.

GUILTY PLEASURE: I don’t feel guilty. 😉

IF YOU COULD SHARE A MEAL OR A DRINK WITH ANYONE IN HISTORY, DEAD OR ALIVE, WHO WOULD IT BE: I ‘d gather all my long lost friends instead!

DREAM TRAVEL DESTINATION: Iceland.

ACUTE OR OBTUSE: Depends. How much coffee have I had?

SURPRISE US: I can rap in French and am certified to sail a 50-foot boat.
