ABOUT THE PHO­TOG­RA­PHER

Ash­ley has been a pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­pher for over 15 years, dur­ing which time his im­ages of town and coun­try­side have graced the pages of Der­byshire Life. His com­mer­cial work has taken him all over the county, with ma­jor com­mis­sions from Derby Cathe­dral Quar­ter (of­fi­cial pho­tog­ra­pher since 2008), Der­byshire County Coun­cil (pho­tograph­ing parks, walk­ways, cy­cle paths), Der­byshire Dales (lo­cal in­dus­try), Ark­wright So­ci­ety at Crom­ford Mills, Der­wen­tWise, Mer­cia Ma­rina, Mil­ford Care Homes and T C Har­ri­son Ford, plus es­tate agents, builders, ho­tels, pubs, restau­rants, char­i­ties and chil­dren’s nurs­eries. In more re­cent years Ash­ley has run an an­nual May work­shop in Tus­cany with land­scape pho­tog­ra­pher Wayne Brit­tle.

Most of Ash­ley’s lo­cal land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy is fo­cused on the Der­went Val­ley where he lives, es­pe­cially as he is work­ing to­wards the pub­li­ca­tion of the first photo book and ex­hi­bi­tion of the Der­went Val­ley Mills World Her­itage Site in 2021.
