photos – Ashley Klassen
model – Ellie Schneider

Inspired by the land that Ellie works on and explores daily, photographer Ashley Klassen traveled to capture Ellie in her element, just north of Algonquin National Park in Ontario, Canada.

“We played with natural aesthetics, pulling vintage clothing from her wardrobe, using the farm and forest as our backdrop, and keeping true to her everyday lifestyle from using the vegetables from her garden as props, to riding bareback.” 

Ashley is a self-taught photographer based in Toronto. Photography became an extension of her artistic expression following her performance career in theatre and opera.

Deeply influenced by her desire to communicate through characterization and emotion, she expresses sensual beauty, vulnerability, and honest feelings; a feminine hedonism weaved within a modern bohème aesthetic. Photographing and art directing soulful creatives, entrepreneurs, mothers, and lovers in addition to her specialty, female portraiture.
