Ashley is a Director of Photography who’s varied background has shaped her unique mix of visual attitudes, informing both her perspective and approach.
Born in Russia to a family of mathematicians, scientists (and a businessman), she lived in Ireland’s south before calling Australia home. She worked as camera assistant before being selected as 1 of 28 Cinematographers in the world to train at the American Film Institute Conservatory in Hollywood.
Ashley’s work there earned her a nomination at the prestigious Camerimage Cinematography Film Festival and profiled in both the American and Australian Cinematographer magazines. A range of award, festival and online success has followed, along with the completion of her first feature film in 2014.
Although Ashley has earned a reputation for her emotive style she considers story, performance and direction paramount. Aligning her work with these elements is both her priority and specialty.
