About Us

John Ashley Photography is more than "photography." We are a full service media production service that can solve many of your needs with just one stop.

Our toolbox is full of media production tools, from photography to Powerpoint presentations, to audio services, all the way to performance of your show. But perhaps the most important tool is our experience. This is what sets us apart from simply "photography."

As you explore our broad areas of production, you will see how some, or all, of the tools we have can be used to achieve your goals.

Photography? Full studio photography on location, with professional lighting, backgrounds, and image capture.

On site printing? Up to 8 X 10, for results that are far beyond the "photo booth".

Powerpoint/slide shows? We can add photos we produce (or you provide) into a projectable show, whether it's a sales presentation or a tribute banquet, or a fundraising auction... we can produce the visuals, edit the show, set up the necessary presentation projectors and screens, and run the show to your specifications. Or we can take a presentation you have done on your own system, and present it to large groups in a very professional fashion.

Location audio system? We have a modular system that can be tailored to your needs. Up to six 15" speaker systems. Up to six wireless microphone channels. Audio playback from CD, MP3, or laptop. Video playback from DVD or laptop computer video sources. The combinations are endless. You pick the features you need, and the level of support we can provide, and we work together to achieve the best results.
