While living in Paris in 2008, Ben’s amateur photography was noticed by the owner of a boutique ad agency, Darwin FX. They hired Ben as a photographer and bought him his first professional camera.
Having been labeled a Teen Idol, and penned by Cosmopolitan Magazine as one of America’s “Most Wanted Men” in the summer of 1998 All About Men issue, Ben has spent the last 10 years in front of the camera as an actor. But it wasn’t until he stepped behind the camera that Ben found his second passion.
Ben shot stills for The Experiment, starring Adrian Brody and Forrest Whitaker. He also shot stills for the remake of Stephen King’s Children of the Corn, for the Syfi Channel. Ben continues to focus on editorial and portraiture work while developing projects which allow him to share stories he finds important for our time and culture. Ben’s hope is to be nothing more than an effective story-teller whether in front or behind the lens, not a teen idol. To document the reality we see, and the reality we don’t see – the human condition – motivates Ben to continue to grow personally and as a photographer.
