Behind The Scenes with Ashley Smith on Cerro Negro

Spotlighting the alluring ‘off-the-beaten-path’ nature of Nicaragua, Electrify Mag chose Cerro Negro volcano at a 2,388 foot elevation and the sustainable luxe Jicaro Ecolodge located at Lake Nicaragua as a backdrop for the “Global Generation” cover story featuring Ashley Smith photographed by Electrify Mag’s Creative Director, Christopher DeMairo. Read on for the full story as we go behind the scenes to get an inside look at the cover shoot and short film shot by Director, Shawn Corrigan.

“When I was little, I didn’t exactly know what I wanted to do when I grew up. Although, I did know I wanted to travel the world and meet all the different kinds of people. For me, being apart of the “global generation” means having a greater acceptance of diversity and curiosity for the world we live in today.

For me, it was an unreal journey to go to Nicaragua and shoot. I am very lucky to have seen and done the things I have done in my career thus far, and this one will go down as one of my favorite memories ever. Nicaragua was a very different place than I have ever traveled before. Traveling by boat to our hotel, Jicaro Ecolodge, by sled down the side of the Cerro Negro Volcano, and all the lovely moments with the Electrify Mag team in between… it is hard to choose a favorite moment.” – Ashley
