About Us

Jeff Ascough has devoted the past thirty years of his life to the art and craft of photography. Equally at home shooting a portrait, a landscape, or a documentary wedding photograph, his images are defined by his love of composition and light.

Voted as one of the top 100 photographers of all time by Professional Photographer magazine and one of the ten best wedding photographers in the world by America Photo,  Jeff’s images have been exhibited all over the world including The Getty Image Gallery in London and the Visa Pour L’Image festival in France. His life and work have been the subject of interviews in The Washington Post, Newsweek, Sueddutsche Zeitung, Adore Noir, American Photo, British Journal of Photography, The Photographer, The Master Photographer, Professional Photographer USA, Photo Pro, Rangefinder, Digital Pro, CPN, Phase One, Alien Skin, and Canon Europe.

 

Sarah Ascough picked up the camera a little later than Jeff but her rise to the top of the profession has been spectacular.

 As a photographer she is naturally drawn towards people; their personalities and relationships. Whether she is photographing a street scene or a wedding, she is always looking for pictures that are full of character, often with a sense of humour and irony. Her images are full of layers offering something new on each viewing.

Sarah’s images have been used by Canon Europe as part of a major worldwide product launch, and her celebrity wedding pictures have appeared in Hello, Marie Claire, USA Today, InStyle, Elle, The Sun, The Mirror, Daily Mail, and Telegraph.
