Paul Ashley


Paul Ashley photographs people, in performance, at work and in their daily lives.

About me

I am a photographer living in Cambridge, UK. I take photographs for pleasure and on commission. 

I have a particular interest in:

  • Performance: music, theatre and dance
  • The activities of skilled workers and craftspeople
  • Portraiture, particularly on location or in places of work
  • Sustainable development, and how people are affected by, and can act on climate change.

I am the editor of the RPS Contemporary Photography journal.
I am a member and a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society.

Commissions and sales

I will undertake commissions in the areas I specialise in, illustrated by the examples on my website. To avoid disappointment, please note that I am not a wedding or baby photographer! I have no permanent studio, but borrow or hire venues for portraiture as required – I prefer shooting on location (indoors or outdoors).
