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 and received her BFA in documentary photography at Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Her visual dialogue with diverse subjects is what makes her work stand out. She has photographed Wiz Khalifa and on-going work with Peter Thiel while focusing her personal projects primarily on subcultures. "The images are important, but it's the relationships that are developed before the image is captured, that matter" to Erin. 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 diverse restaurant culture in Redwood City.

Erin shoots frequently in her Redwood City studio, and loves to travel for clients such as Thiel Foundation, Fader, NASDAQ, Jim Ellis Porsche, Modern Luxury Media, Neiman Marcus, Elie Tahari, Jeffrey Fashion Cares and many others.

Erin also teaches at Sequoia High School as a mentor with the SAFE program and has documented events by the Coalition Against Domestic Violence, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and has an on-going documentary project with a human trafficking survivor.
