Director of Photography with ten years of experience, both nationally and internationally. Birmingham / London Based. BAFTA Connect Member. 


Specialising in Narrative (Short and Feature) Commercials and Branded content, with experience in Documentaries and Music videos. I have worked across a wide range of production styles and genres at various budget levels. From small two or three person teams up to crews of 45+. Working for clients such as The NHS, Channel 4, BBC, Warner Brothers, Specsavers, Vax and more. 

As a creative on the Autistic Spectrum, I stand as an advocate for neurodiverse film workers and strongly support the need for equal opportunities when sourcing crew. I pride myself on my positive, approachable and hard working attitude always working to a high technical standard, calmly and efficiently under pressure to bring projects to life, whilst keeping sets both functional and fun places to be. I value talent and contributions across all departments & enjoy working colaboratively. 

I have an extensive in house kit list but am equally comfortable working with a wide range of rental equipment. I also have connections with a network of talented crew.

As part of my Continued Professional Development, I have Completed the Screenskills Coronavirus basic awareness on production course aswell as a "Step Up to HOD for High end TV" training scheme from Screenskills/BFI.

"Ash is the consummate professional. Not only is his work of a very high standard but his attitude on set is only comparable to his knowledge.


I have worked with Ash on a number of occasions and have always found him to give 100%. He works well with other heads of department and is good at working to schedule.


In pre-production he offers solutions to problems before they have even been mentioned and is always ready to accept alternative suggestions. I wouldn't hesitate to put Ash forward to any production."
