Steve Ashton

I have been a full time UK based professional photographer for over 25 years now. I specialise fine art urban landscape and street photography and love working with new and creative techniques involving both digital and film cameras.

My 500px account represents my personal images and I hope helps to convey my love of photography and both the natural and the built environment and the people who inhabit these spaces.

I have a passionate interest in the natural world and how man interacts and effects it, as a result many of my projects involve a man made element. Often my images will depict the fascinating way the natural environment reclaims back the landscape after years of intrusion by industry.

At present I work with many photographic mediums and formats including toy cameras such as the Holga, Polaroid and conventional film cameras, including Zero Image Pinholes and vintage Hasselblads and Leica's in addition to the latest digital cameras from Canon, Fuji and my much loved Leica Monochrom System.

Since introducing photographic training and workshops some 4 years ago, I have developed a great interest in sharing my photographic knowledge and skills with others. I now run a regular programme of both group workshops and individual One 2 One courses across the UK and I have been fortunate to co lead workshops with some top UK photographers.

I continue to be fascinated by the developments taking place in photography and find great satisfaction watching others develop an interest in all aspects of photography.
