A little about me.
Hi, I’m Aston
As a photographer, at times I get asked the questions, “Who am I?” and “What makes me tick?”, the answer is quite simple;
I love my family, friends, travel, wildlife and nature and all the wonderful moments and memories these can bring. Photography is a passion that I have and a wonderful means to capture these often unpredictable moments in life that lead to invaluable lasting memories. Before moving to this wonderful country I lived in South Africa where I was fortunate to grow up entertained by the tradition of storytelling around campfires along with the adventure, discovery and the sheer beauty the African bushveld and its wildlife has to offer. It was here that my passion for Photography started, making it possible to capture wonderful and priceless memories through the lens of the camera. My love of photography grew from there as possibilities became endless. This brings me to two of my next great loves, People and Travel. I love to meet new people, and traveling affords me the opportunity to meet a lot of different and wonderful people in a world of discovery and learn about their traditions, customs and values in life. The one value that everyone I meet shares is that of Family and what better way to capture the precious moments in life with family than by means of a camera and the spectacular images that it can produce, capturing & creating memories that will last a lifetime and be there to tell the stories for generations to come.
It is the value of these memories with family & friends that I cherish the most and the reason that I take so seriously the importance of capturing stunning moments and creating beautiful images that tell a story. I love working with natural light and even though I shoot anytime of the day I do most of my shooting during the time of day when the light is at its best. Early morning or late afternoon when the light creates a perfect & naturally emotional atmosphere and setting. When I’m not working you'll find me kicking back with a cold beer, taking in a beautiful view and enjoying the sheer awesomeness of a magical sunset. I’d love to work with you, to capture those special memories, to tell your story...
I hope to see you on the other side of my camera soon.
Silke Brown - "It was such a pleasure to work with Aston for our family photo shoot. Our family had never gotten professional photos done with our son before, and we were a little nervous about how it would go as he is only 4 and rarely sits still, but Aston made it a really fun and natural experience. In advance, we were able to select a beautiful location of our choice and got really great suggestions about what to wear, and the best time of day to schedule the shoot, which resulted in gorgeous lighting and incredible photos. Once we got there, Aston immediately made our son feel comfortable by bringing him bubbles and other fun things to play with, that allowed him to really enjoy the experience. Looking at the pictures, I don’t think there is any other way we could have gotten him to look so joyful and truly himself, with anyone else. Not only were we able to show our best during the shoot, but our final pictures were crisp and sharp, you can tell he invests in his equipment. We absolutely loved the photos, and highly recommend."

Jennifer Lee - "Amazing shots!!!!"
Molly George - "Sorry it has taken me so long to write this, but Aston came to take photos for my Bridal Shower, and they turned out amazing. Each and every photo captured the moments throughout the day, and I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to share the day with. Everyone absolutely loved the photos when I showed them, and they were thrilled by how they turned out. Everyone said that you captured their “good side.” Thank you again, Aston. You were amazing!"
