Robert Ashton Pet Photography Robert Ashton Pet Photography


A photography business full of petsonality

RAPP is the brainchild of Robert Ashton, a professional photographer with over 30 years’ experience. Originally a commercial food photographer in London, Robert moved back to his hometown of Huddersfield looking for a change, which was when he discovered the power of pet photography.

Bella and Kara

In the beginning

When a neighbour called Pamela asked Robert if he would photograph both her and her beloved miniature daschunds Bella and Kara, it became a career-changing moment. Greeted with open arms (and paws), the shoot went swimmingly, but it was Pamela’s emotional reaction to the shots that made Robert realise that this was a career worth pursuing.

Robert and family

Your pet’s second best friend

Robert now works all over the country on everything from private consultations to special events and commercial shoots and his work has been exhibited in galleries in Leeds & Manchester.

Originating from Huddersfield Robert now lives with his wife Nardia and their 4-year-old collie/springer rescue, Jess, in Manchester.

I would love to help every pet owner capture at least one fabulous image of their pet that they can cherish forever.
