About the Owner

Mitch Bowers, owner of Ash Scattering Colorado and Aerial Photography, has been flying professionally for over 16 years. Mitch holds Commercial and Instrument pilot ratings and flies hundreds of aerial assignments each year.  

“My motivation to create Ash Scattering Colorado came after my mother-in-law passed away five years ago. It was my mother-in-law’s wish for her ashes to be set on the beach and carried out to sea by the rush of the waves. I saw the peace it brought my wife to see her moms wish fulfilled. Losing a loved one can bring a sense of helplessness. I want to know that I am helping a grieving family grant that last wish.”

Additionally, Mitch has been a professional photographer for over 18 years and has won numerous awards from organizations like PAPA International (Professional Aerial Photographers Association International). Mitch is an active member of the CABA (Colorado Aviation Business Association),  CPA (Colorado Pilots Association), AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association) and the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association).
