"Ben made everyone feel so amazing, like they were capable of anything...he loved pulling the underdog out from hiding and making them feel special. He had an incredible gift. He never let anyone feel left out. He would give his undivided attention and care to each and every person he spoke to. He really listened to people and looked you in the eye with so much love in his heart. So special." -Melissa Jol-Elliott

Ashley Drody

Ashley is an international travel and lifestyle photographer who spends her summers documenting love and lifestyle in her home of British Columbia, and winters abroad photographing tourism and wellness retreats.

Ashley grew up with Bens younger sister, Meghan, and was always inspired by both of their adventures through Thailand. In 2016 she had the opportunity to visit Bens School alongside Meghan for the first time, and got to experience and photograph some very special moments in Pa Dang Luang Village for the Live Like Ben foundation.

Ashley hopes to visit Bens School again to document all of the beauty of the area and be involved in the positive progress the foundation is making in these small villages in Northern Thailand.

Bens adventurous spirit will continue to be a beautiful reminder to Ashley to live life to the fullest every day.
