Frazer Ashford - Theatre, musical theatre, rock and pop, pantomime photographer

During the late 1970's and the early 1980's Frazer Ashford gained a reputation for his imaginative rock and theatre photography. His subjects included such legends as Charlie Chaplin, Gene Pitney, The New Seekers, Rod Stewart, David Bowie, Elton John, Glenda Jackson and Dame Anna Neagle with many pictures being seen in newspapers, magazines and books as well as being featured in one-man exhibitions around the UK and America.

In 1983 he hung up his cameras and stored all the negatives away from view. Now, 25 years later, he has re-discovered his original 130,000 + negative archive and by taking advantage of the latest digital technology, he is able to provide these images again, many of which are now being seen for the first time. Frazer has also started taking pictures again and is in demand for providing both backstage and front-of-house production images. He has been awarded the Associateship of The Royal Photographic Society (ARPS).
