My name is Ashlee Taylor, European Fine Art Photographer, Proprietor and Creative Director of Taylor Barnes Photography.
Perhaps you could say that my story as a photographer began even before I realised it. As a young girl, I loved pretty things and beautiful places. The beauty I saw in different forms and places moved me to express myself through art. I am so thankful that as the years went on, my love of art matured into a career of capturing prettiness through the lens of a camera.
Ten years ago, my love affair with film began when I became a Film Wedding Photographer. It amazed me that in a split second and with a bit of light exposed onto the film, I could capture the essence of a person and encapsulate a moment in time in a soft and romantic way. Ten years later, I still love that with every image I take I show my viewers how I see artistry and elegance.
Who inspires me to continue learning my craft? I think I’m most inspired by Italian renaissance painters who were able to capture specific moments in time through their paintings. When I study their paintings, I am reminded of what the photographer, Jacques-Henri Lartigue once said, “photography…is catching a moment which is passing and which is true”.
