Ashley’s work as an Education Photographer in Scotland is in the same style as his Lifestyle photography: same skills, different context. The process involves setting a scene with great composition and lighting, placing the subjects into that scene, as if on a stage, and allowing the scene to play out. Ashley will direct as much or as little as necessary to achieve a natural and believable image that doesn’t look staged or contrived. Judging how much or how little photographer’s input is required is a skill which Ashley has been developing over many years with self conscious and unwilling school children in classrooms up and down the country.
Ashley has worked across all areas of the Education sector for a broad range of clients such as Education Scotland, Scottish Funding Council, Times Educational Supplements, Glenalmond College, The Glasgow Academy, NSPCC and Twig Education.
