Peter Ashworth is an English photographer. Ashworth initially specialized in music photography, between 1979 and 2000. In the 1980s, he worked with many UK artists including Eurythmics,[1] Soft Cell,[2], Jimmy Page[3] and The Associates.

In 1980, Ashworth—using his Triash pseudonym—was briefly a member of the band The The with Matt Johnson.[4] In 1982–1983, he played drums as a member of Marc and the Mambas.

He now works predominantly in fashion and style/culture photography,[5][6] working with fashion designers such as Stephen Jones, Basso & Brooke and Atsuko Kudo. He is known in part for his photography of fetish subjects,[7] for creating sets and shooting on location using lighting techniques that explore the textures and cut of his subjects.[citation needed]
