Nearly a decade ago, in Philadelphia, Ash Imagery was created by me, a photographer, Michael Ash Smith, out of a passion for documenting people. After years of honing not only my photography skills - but marketing, advertising, social media, and content imagery and management- I switched the focus of my photography to small businesses and self employed people that need amazing imagery and content to market themselves better.

In the spring of 2017, my family and I moved to Colorado and I revamped the Ash Imagery name to focus more on what I love about photography. Ash Imagery & Design is now based in Louisville (near Boulder) and is available to anyone in Colorado.



Our Services



I’ve photographed nearly 400 events and hundreds of people and businesses since 2009. I bring extensive knowledge of photography and can work in both digital and film - depending on the look you’d like. Over the years I’ve learned an incredible amount about lighting, processing, and editing. We can nail down a look you like and I can make it happen.

Social media - content management & design

Let’s face it, Instagram and Pinterest and Facebook all take up a lot of time for your business. I know, I’ve been through it all. Photographing the products you sell, or the space you own, or whatever other aspect of your business needs photography - takes up time. A LOT of time. And then you have to post it everywhere - and then engage with your clientele. It can be exhausting. That’s where Ash Imagery steps in. I can even take care of ALL your Instagram posting. Or any social media outlet. It can be daily posts, or maybe 3x a week, or just once a week. It’s entirely up to you. We will meet and draw up a game plan and I’ll take care of the rest!


book/marketing design

Do you own a clothing store and want to put together a catalog? Not only can I photograph that for you - I can also design it. Do you just need a quick postcard to mail out? No problem. I can do that too. I’ve been doing it for years now. This is a recurring theme but let me handle it and you will have so much more time on your hands to do what you love!

basic web design

Using the Squarespace web design platform is a powerful tool. I know, because for the past several years I’ve designed dozens of websites for fellow creatives and small businesses. This isn’t super fancy elaborate web design, but it works wonderfully for small business and the self employed. It’s what you are looking at right now. Its fair priced AND I can even be the administrator for you if you aren’t into the upkeep. I got this. No worries.
