About Me

Jesse Ashton is a California native, and has been based in Los Angeles for the past 15+ years. Specializing in portraits of all kinds, he's had the privilege of photographing headshots for a wide variety a people, including everyone from celebrities and politicians to actors and members of corporate America. His editorial work has been featured on the covers of numerous magazines, and his commercial photography has been utilized in campaigns for major companies like Mercedes Benz and Reebok.

 

Having begun his photographic exploration at a young age, taking "fashion photos" of friends and family, Jesse discovered that his favorite way to create is in an environment that feels free, playful, and fun. He maintains that approach today, producing projects that are a pleasure to take part in. The goal is always this: create something beautifully balanced, interesting, and engaging.
