Rod Ashford Photos
Rod Ashford is an award winning image maker whose work has appeared as fine art posters, magazine covers, book jackets, postcards, greetings cards, stationery and jigsaw puzzles all over the World.
To date, Rod's images have been purchased by some of the World's leading publishing houses including: Time Warner, Penguin, Hodder & Stoughton, Transworld, Little Brown & Co., Pan MacMillan, Virgin Books, Hallmark, Carlton Cards, Emotional Rescue, for jacket illustrations on over 600 novels and more than 200 greetings cards.
Rod began his career as a photographer specialising in traditional darkroom print methods and alternative chemical processes. Many of his images were painstakingly coloured by hand using a variety of retouching media including photo oils, watercolour and food dyes. Rod now works in mixed media, having discovered the fine control a marriage of traditional techniques with digital technology offers at every stage of his image creation.
In 2010 for the first time, Rod launched a series of signed limited editions of his images giclee printed on to archival cotton-rich papers to ensure the maximum quality and longevity. Describing his latest images, Rod says "This is the first time in a career spanning over 20 years, I have been able to take full control of how my images will look this is a very exciting project".
Rod's limited edition prints are currently available at selected galleries.
