My work has three branches: Wedding Photography, Corporate Portraits and Family Photography. At first glance they all seem to be very different but they are, in fact, three peas grown from the same pod. And that pod is my 20 years as a professional photographer in the newspaper industry. The variety of work I now do is built on that experience and as you look around the website you will see that I always aim to keep my work Authentic, Relaxed, Natural.
“After working closely with Ashley over many years, I can safely say that his reputation for high quality pictures, combined with efficiency and reliability is second to none. I would not hesitate to use him for any job – however challenging!”
Magnus Linklater, Scotland Editor, The Times
Based near Stirling I cover Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Central Belt of Scotland. Also I regularly travel to destinations further afield when my natural, unposed style of wedding photography is just what the couple want. I draw on my background as a photojournalist to capture the fun, drama and romance as it really is. You’ll be unaware of the camera for much of the day as I look for the unscripted and unposed moments. It will be the real emotions that form the essence and memories of your day. Furthermore, your set of pictures will include a beautiful range of relaxed Wedding Portraits captured quickly and with the minimum of fuss so you are free to spend precious time on your wedding day with your family and friends rather than me!
Corporate and commercial portraits – my editorial style is fresh, natural and relaxed. I have a real insight into how powerful imagery can bring a campaign to life, as well as having the experience and communication skills to bring out the best in my subjects – whether on a windswept hillside or in the boardroom. If you’re looking to create a library of pictures of your Chief Executive or you need a set of consistent corporate headshots for the whole department, I have the package to suit so you can accurately budget for your project.
My aim is to create emotive and timeless images which capture a brief and passing stage in your family’s life. I photograph children in their own space which allows me to easily put them at ease. I make sure the experience is great fun and at the same time captures their characters in a natural and unforced way.
