BA (HONS) COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHY
Hello! I'm Ashleigh. I am a commercial photographer based in the Southwest of England. I am currently finishing my last year of BA Commercial Photography at Arts University Plymouth. Food Is fuel, food Is culture, food is taboo, food is political, food is sexy. food is grotesque, vile, and unpleasant. Food is such a bizarre subject matter, it both nourishes and shapes our bodies as well as somehow being a tool used to express pleasures, culture and principles. Throughout my degree I have been focusing on improving my skills in styling, lighting and shooting food. For my final major project I’ve focused on how food is presented in mainstream media, looking specifically at what is considered healthy food and shooting in a way that I feel that represents the female gaze. My style of work is bold, crisp and colorful with meticulous attention to detail, and I work with a mix of still and moving image.
