Ashley Comer Photography

Photographer

At present, I am a recent graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) with a major in photography and minor in graphic design. While I have immense interests in art in all of its forms, photography is where my passion lays. Photography is a medium of endless possibilities , and a single image can have an incredible impact. I am also trained in design and painting, and I incorporate these influences in my approach to photography. I genuinely believe that art can impact and influence the world, and hope to someday do so with mine.
