Ace Kvale

Earth Tours is proud to have Ace guide your journey into the wild canyons beyond Boulder.

Ace Kvale’s photography is a celebration of the human element His images are powerful yet humble, and his passion for storytelling has translated into a remarkable talent for weaving a complete narrative through pictures.

Ace began his relationship with photography working in front of the lens as a ski model in the early eighties.
Thirty years later, now one of the world’s top adventure photographers, Ace has traveled to more than sixty countries. His images have appeared in dozens of magazines, from National Geographic to The National Enquirer. He’s contributed imagery to dozens of books and movies, and shot portraits of celebrities from Jerry Garcia to Tiger Woods.

These days Ace is once again finding a different way of looking through the viewfinder: photography as an opportunity to raise consciousness. Ace has traveled with the Himalayan Cataract Project to Ethiopia and Rwanda to document mobile eye clinics, with the dZi Foundation to Nepal where they help remote villages to build new schools, and with the Kashmir Earthquake Relief Effort to document the plight of the millions affected by the devastating quake of October 2005. “It’s not the places we go, it’s the people we meet when we get there. My focus now is on giving back to cultures I’ve come to love.”

Ace now makes his home in a tiny, remote town in the canyon country of Southern Utah with his dog Genghis.
Ace has spent the last 10 years exploring the canyon country even going out for 2 months straight. You can see a film about that trip here:
