Who is Ashley Ice?

Ashley Ice

Hey there! I am Ashley Ice! I am the founder and owner of Ashley Ice Photography based out of Kansas City, MO. I have been a photographer at heart since I was a child. My mom would give me one of those disposable cameras, you know those ones that super popular in the early 90s that were brightly colored and had a bad flash on them. Yep, those ones. I would take that thing everywhere with me. I would pose my sisters, I would grab the “best” angles of a pretty rock, flower, whatever was my eyesight got a photograph. I would then spend my entire monthly allowance on just developing all my photos and buying more disposal cameras. Through high school, I was even taking photography classes on the side and learning everything I could with my digital point and shoot camera. I had a camera everywhere I went and I had to make sure I captured everything that happened.

What is crazy I never said I wanted to grow up to be a photographer. It never even crossed my mind that I could have a six-figure business out of something I just loved doing.

It was not until after 1.5 years of my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree I knew I wanted to be a photographer. From then on I worked non-stop to get where I am today. The college attended had a great film photography class but for all the digital classes, they were not extensive. They did not go into Lightroom editing, photoshop editing, pretty much the college I attended was out of date for the digital era that was coming on fast with photography.

It was not until after 1.5 years of my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree I knew I wanted to be a photographer. From then on I worked non-stop to get where I am today. The college attended had a great film photography class but for all the digital classes, they were not extensive. They did not go into Lightroom editing, photoshop editing, pretty much the college I attended was out of date for the digital era that was coming on fast with photography.  This was also before they had an online course for photographers to learn how to really use your camera. You had to somehow hear about photography workshops that were happening around the United States to really get a great mentorship program.  Now they are everywhere, I cannot go one day on any social media platform and not see an ad from someone who is offering to be YOUR mentor. They promise to make your business into 6 figures. They promise to show you how to shoot like them that bring in the high dollar clients. I remember seeing my first ads. I jumped on it. Then I realized they are prerecorded videos… that didn’t actually help me in my photography journey. Then I found another, and another, and all of them were NOT helpful to me in any way. I ended up self-teaching myself everything I know today.
After 10 years of self-teaching, reading blogs, books, and watching videos I have perfected my craft to create timeless, creative, and innovative photos.  I personally choose to take my creativity and apply it to wedding photography. But everything I will be teaching you will be able to apply it to all styles of photography. From lifestyle to food, to nature, to your own personal family photos. This 5-day education process is going to transform you, your photography, and your life.

Get ready to dive deep into how to operate a camera manually, learn how to use natural light in the harshest times of the time to the beautiful golden hour at the end of the day. This program is 100% hands-on and I will be there with you every step of the way.

*This program is designed for DSLR canon camera users. You are welcome to use any other model of a camera but to get the fullest experience from this adventure is to bring a DSLR canon camera. We do ask you do bring at least one prime lens to the class. Kit lens and zoom lenses that are above 2.8 aperture will hinder your learning experience in this extensive class.

Julyamsh - Is the largest outdoor Pow Wow in the Inland Northwest. Powwows are celebrations, social gatherings and friendly dance competitions surrounded by ceremonial and traditional beliefs and teachings. Sacred traditions are often found in these gatherings of Native Americans throughout the United States. Some regalia can specify special events or honors a person’s life, specific traditions or symbols rooted in legend. Each dancer has a different style of decorative symbols: birds, flowers, geometrical designs, etc. Most of the symbols are handed down from generation to generation as family heirlooms. Each family may use a specific symbol, as do many tribes. Native Americans do not think of themselves as wearing “costumes.” Costumes are reserved for Halloween and such. They refer to the dance gear as an “outfit” or “regalia.” Everyone is welcome at a powwow; regardless of the tribe they are from. Non-Indians are welcome, too. For those of you who are new visitors, a bit of explanation might enhance the enjoyment and understanding. Powwows are not tourist attractions – that is one fact that many fail to grasp. Everyone is welcome, but the dancing will start when the time is right and will end when the time is right. All powwows begin with a grand entry. The term is a contemporary word used to describe what was once called a victory dance. If you can imagine the area where the dancers are dancing, the crowd, the Master of Ceremonies – everyone is gathered together – all of these things symbolize the opening of the first dance, the return of the warriors from the war trail or a raid of neighboring tribes to get horses, or a successful hunting party. The grand entry can be described as an announcement of the warriors or a part of the tribe’s homecoming. The warriors would change into their finest clothing a few miles from the main camp. A serpentine ride in the form of a snake down a hill and onto flat ground would complete the journey into camp. As they made their way to camp, the snake dance song would be presented and a victory song would be sung – thus the grand entry. It symbolizes the warriors coming home, arriving at the camp and into the area where a social dance would be held to welcome them and celebrate their successful ride. The riders would return displaying their finery and the things they gained on their trail.
