Erin Ashford Photography LLC


"I strive to produce truthful and candid moments in photos, of unguarded people, and genuine events. The challenge is to document sensitive scenes and important moments without the presence of my camera changing them. As a photographer, I have found that the only way to capture images with this kind of honesty and trust, is to develop a solid relationship with my clients."

Erin Ashford was trained as a documentary photographer at Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Her visual dialogue with diverse subjects is what makes her work stand out. Erin's documentary projects focus primarily on subcultures. So, while the images are important, it's the relationships that are developed before the image is captured and continued, that matter to her. She has documented Queer culture in the South, street rod culture in the Bay Area, construction workers in Georgia, an on-going portfolio of international female street artists and most recently the restaurant culture in Redwood City.

Erin shoots frequently in Redwood City, San Francisco, Atlanta, and Seattle, with clients such as Thiel Foundation, NASDAQ, Jim Ellis Porsche, Fader, MOdern Luxury Media, Neiman Marcus, Elie Tahari, Jeffrey Fashion Cares and many others. Erin also donates her time to Sequoia High School and has documented events by the Coalition Against Domestic Violence, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and she frequents local protests to heighten awareness of important local issues.

Erin relocated her studio to California, where she will continue to photograph events and culture. When she is not traveling she can be found at her studio in Redwood City. Give her a shout and reserve your date!
