R.I.P. Alter Bridge Photographer Ashley Maile

Postby Jim » Thu May 16, 2013 7:42 am

It was tweeted out yesterday that Ashley Maile had passed away after suffering from and battling cancer at the age of 36.

You will recognize his work with AB as it was their last set of pro shots to be taken, as well as their Wembley DVD cover photos..

And also this set from 2007..

He was a good friend to the band so please join us in sending prayers and thoughts to all of those close to him.

Cheers

RIP.
I've got a poster with one of his pictures hanging right in front of me. I didn't know who he was until now, but it's a tragedy nonetheless. 36 is way too young.

So talented. Just recently I had noticed the name on a really great photograph, don't remember who the subject was. Photographers don't get enough credit. Checked out his website http://www.ashleymaile.com last night. Such a loss, but clearly someone who acheived a lot in their lifetime.

A picture can tell a thousand words. His work for Alter Bridge captured the essence of the band.

It's so sad he passed away so young. RIP

This photo has always been my favorite band shot of all time. Such greatness portrayed and well captured.

Note: This is the guy that took the shot, right?
