Greg Ash

My passion for photography started after my first seminar from National Geographic‘s Jim Brandenburg almost 30 years ago. His take-home message was “learning to shoot where you are at.” Over the years, I have enjoyed taking photos of nature, wildlife and macro photography. After witnessing the overhead Aurora Borealis in Iceland, my passion has turned into an obsession.

I currently chase the northern lights consistently in all weather, here in the Twin Ports, and generally in northern Minnesota. My Aurora photos have been featured internationally nine times on and once on the Washington Post.

We are blessed to have many opportunities throughout the year in Minnesota, and I will teach you how, where and when to shoot the amazing aurora borealis.
