I create fresh, vibrant images that capture the essence of my subjects, from portraits and weddings to landscapes and still lifes.

Whether you're looking for a simple portrait, family portraits, head shots for business cards or if you are planning your special wedding day, I would love to work with you. I am happy to offer on location photography as my specialty, and will travel anywhere within 30 miles of Galesburg for no additional charge, or will go further for a nominal fee. For those who prefer in studio work, I do offer this as well but appointments must be made at least one day in advance.

Darrell Garrett


Hello, I am Darrell Garrett, owner of Dan Ash Photography. It is my goal to create timeless portraits that capture the individuality and flavor of each subject photographed. My style includes both classic portraiture, as well as photo journalistic-style photography. What does this mean? A photojournalist captures a moment in time... real life happenings. I see and photo you or your family as they really are… laughing, interacting, being themselves. I try to capture moments, not just create a scene or a pose. My goal is to capture a moment in time that you will treasure for years… even a life-time.

I also try to limit how many people are shot in a particular location, so you won't see a dozen people with photos that resemble yours. I want your photos to be uniquely yours. That is why I take time to bond with those I’m photographing... to get to know them and to get them to relax and start being themselves. In fact, this "bonding time" is so real that I have become great friends with many of my clients and have actually had some begin to consider me as family. It's just fun shooting this way!

We hired Dan Ash Photos to do our wedding and we really did not realize what an important step this was for us. Darrell has become like family to us and we just love him. He has a way of making you relaxed and comfortable and made the day even more special than what it was already. We simply cannot speak more highly of him than we do. He is just the best at what he does. You will not regret working with Darrell and if you are like us, you will develop a friendship that goes on long past the wedding day.
