About Me Photo

Kyle Ashton puts a spin on lifestyle and portrait photography that only a Chicago native with Hip Hop roots and global experience can. 


An entrepreneur before 21, his professional career began in the music industry running his own artist management firm by hustling, connecting and promoting his artists. Studio time and laying tracks were paramount, but catching the moments on film was never out of mind.


After 3 yrs working closely with musicians, Kyle transitioned his gregarious nature into the ever growing tech industry. Working with Fortune 500 companies by growing their sales presence gave Kyle insider knowledge and he noticed an overall absence of visual narrative. 


Ever the hustler, Kyle began doing small shoots as part of a full service side gig providing marketing and campaign help to local small businesses on the west coast. Shortly after finding a rhythm, he picked up a camera full time and once again transitioned his business savvy and outgoing nature to run his solo photography shop. 


He has recently worked on commissions for publications by Sole DxB in Dubai, brands Maui Jim and Sweet Chick, private client Chelsea Restoration, and Barney’s New York.
