Yorkshire & Derbyshire | United Kingdom
Hey there, I'm Ash Groom, I'm not just a camera guy, I'm all about family, art, music, and those outdoor adventures that inevitably end with a cozy bed and a hot cuppa.
My journey to photography is a bit of a rollercoaster. School wasn't my thing—I'm creative and sports-loving, but dyslexia made things tricky. At 17, I thought joining the army would be a grand idea, especially working with helicopters up in North Yorkshire. Two tours of Afghanistan and a fair bit of globe-trotting later, I realized the army wasn't my forever gig.
I'm a laid-back, no-worries kind of guy, and the army? Well, let's just say it's not exactly a relaxing environment. So, I traded my army days for driving HGVs. It was a nice change, especially getting to be home more with my family, but there was still something missing—job satisfaction, that feeling of pride.
Turns out, photography filled that gap. I dove into Photography and never looked back. it gave me focus and the satisfaction I had been looking for. Since then, I've been continually improving my skills, soaking up all things cameras and post-processing. I'm all about pushing myself to improve because, let's be honest, the learning never stops.
Turning a passion into a career has been a game-changer. I get a kick out of creating beautiful images for couples and families. Every wedding is a journey for me, and the awesome feedback from couples is like the icing on the cake.
