PHOTOGRAPHY MADE ME DO IT...
My name is Damian Ashton, I am a passionate photographer and I love my job.
I grew up in remote places in southern Africa where I had the space to do my own thing and gained a unique view on life. I was home-schooled for most of my childhood by my mother and when I wasn't in school, I spent my time outdoors exploring the world around me.
Photography has always been a huge part of my life, with family members and friends giving me their camera's at weddings and functions as I always managed to capture a unique perspective.
I moved to the United Kingdom on my 11th birthday, and have got to admit, it was a very hard transition, things got a little rocky, and there was a lot of pressure on me academically and socially.
By the time I was 15, I had decided that I wanted to pursue the career I loved most, photography.
When you do something you love, you do not work a day in your life...
I am at the beginning of my career in photography, it has been an incredible journey so far. I go forward eager to make the most of life and enjoy every step of the way.
