Maria Ashby-Giles Photography


Thank-you for taking the time to visit my website. I have been running my own company since 2004 but my love of photography goes back to my childhood, when as a member of a family of keen amateur photographers, I worked out that if I was the one taking the shots my image would not end up in countless family albums but I would always be recording the special family moments and memories for posterity.

After taking my A Levels I studied photography at the Berkshire College of Art and Design where my passion for photographing people really grew.  This led on to opportunities to work with some talented local photographers where I gained experience in the practicalities of being a photographer to go with the technical stuff I learned at college.  This really helped me in making the decision to follow my dream and set up my own photographic company.

My passion is still taking photographs of people, whether it is weddings, babies, family gatherings and parties or even school proms but I am equally at home in the commercial area and have produced pack shots of products for local companies and even photographed a chefs creations for his new menu!

Away from the business I am a very busy mother of two; I am passionate about art, literature, travel, loud music, food and a decent pint of real ale.
