Erik Asla is a Norwegian photographer. After moving to Los Angeles from Paris, France, he became a protégé of celebrated image-maker Herb Ritts. Resisting the urge to focus exclusively on the genres in which his mentor built an illustrious career, Asla was drawn to the solitary endeavor and unconstrained expressive boundaries presented by fine art photography.

Asla’s work is included in numerous private and corporate fine art collections in the United States and abroad.
