I am a UK-based commercial photographer. I work across a variety of industries and have been producing high quality images for clients for over ten years.
My business background, coupled with an in-depth technical expertise, means I am well-placed to advise clients and collaborate on briefs, developing visually interesting ideas wherever possible.
I have taken pictures for as long as I can remember but only made the decision to turn professional after an eventful trip to Sierra Leone in 2001, after which I gained a postgraduate degree in photojournalism at the London College of Communication.
My training and early career in photojournalism gave me a solid grounding in professional photography and taught me how to tell a story with my camera in limited time and with few resources, as well as then delivering the results to meet tight deadlines.
While further developing my creativity in a commercial environment I now have a wealth of experience working across industries as diverse as financial services, mining and professional football. Whatever the industry or location clients know that they can rely on me to create images with a strong aesthetic and of a consistently high standard.
The vast majority of my work is shot digitally and I am skilled in image post-production and retouching.
“Ben combines skillful, creative photography with extremely strong direction, always putting his subjects at ease with his professional manner. He’s also super reliable and efficient.”
“Ben takes time to understand the brief, research the end client and location and plan an efficient shoot schedule. His considered, gentle approach draws the best out of his subjects.
Always a joy to work with, Ben is the quintessential professional who takes damn good photos.”
“Ben’s been part of our Cornbury family for many years – he keeps us looking good.
He also knows how to work well with artists which of course is essential at the festival as well as at our private & corporate events.”
“Ben understands what a client needs from a brief and delivers beautiful and creative responses, often in short time frames. We are consistently happy with the results of his work.
Ben is professional, personable and a pleasure to work with.”
“We have commissioned Ben many times, to photograph our cooking classes as well as portraits of the staff.
He’s very relaxed to deal with, easy on the shoot but directive and bottom line ended up with some great photos!
Would highly recommend.”
