Four years after
receiving a swimming scholarship at the University of Houston
in Texas, Ashley graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree
in graphic communications - and then went on to become one of
Ireland's leading commercial photographers - who, over the next 20 years,
worked alongside many of leading advertising agencies and design
companies in the country.
During that time Ireland's Homes Interiors & Living magazine was formed - which very quickly became one of the biggest selling magazines in the country - and so their success became a big part of his success as their No.1 photographer.
All of which lead to meeting journalists, stylists and interior designers who were also interested in moving to the next level - and so around 2003, ampimage.com was originally formed.
Within the space of a few years, the teams reputation quickly grew to the point where they were regularly commissioned to shoot homes all over Europe and in the US, for many the top selling national publications such as Homes & Gardens, Ideal Home, 25 Beautiful Homes, House Beautiful, Period Living, Good Homes, Real Homes, Country Homes & Interiors and many more - which naturally would still include Ireland's Homes Interiors & Living magazine.
Today, the teams work can still not only be seen in many of those magazines, it can also be regularly seen in the marketing material of the companies who would advertise within them.
