About Me

Ben is a technically and artistically accomplished in portraiture photography and been quoted by professors at university as a master in the studio. He love's to make the photos encapsulate you and who you want to be. Ben strives to capture the details and emotions that would go together to make your time with me an enjoyable experience.
Ben is a social person and love's to get to know the people he works for, so he can really reflect their character and what they want, so to produce the highest quality work for and give them exactly what they are after. Ben aims to spend time chatting with you in advance so that your time with me is so much more productive.
Ben grew up in West Africa where his parents worked amongst the poor coordinating small-scale development projects. This had a massive impact upon his life and photographic practice affecting how he relates to the world around him. In his photographic work he has taken a special interest in reflecting stories and voices through his images. For example, he travelled in Uganda and Thailand and used photography to be the ‘voice’ of the people he photographed.
Although Ben’s formative years were spent in Africa he was educated in Guildford, Surrey at George Abbot School that specialised in the expressive arts. During these years his creative flare became more apparent when he took A levels in Fine Art, Sculpture and Photography. He progressed onto doing a Foundation Degree in Action Photography at Truro College where he specialised in Sport, the Natural world and Social Documentary and began to prepare for a more commercial direction. Ben still maintained his roots in expressive art during the foundation degree but also developed his technical skills thoroughly. Ben had the opportunity to be the photographer for 24/7 magazines in July 2008 at the Newquay Ripcurl Surfing Festival.
In 2009 he progressed on to Plymouth University to study for his BA Hons in Photography where he achieved a 2.1 studying under Stephen Vaughan and Dr Simon Standing. During this course he spent time looking intricately into the how we view our bodies and others around us. He concluded the year specialising in fine art nudes and portraiture, with a project called ‘The Paradox of Perfect Beauty’. This study challenges the ideologies of beauty in history, sculpture and figurative representation and critically analyses the standardised figures and body shape used in art as well as in modern day commercial advertising, fashion and other types of portraiture. In the final exhibition Ben aimed to present a personal discovery of body image and consequent self-affirmation. Ben was fortunate to be able to exhibit some of his work at the D & A D New Blood Exhibition in London in June 2010.
Many photographer say they are good but even the perfect image that ben has he can still see my own flaws in you get the highest quality with me and wont be disappointed. In this digital age many people can snap you but ben can give you an artistic flair, which is also of superior quality. He is sure that you will want to share the photographs he produces. Don’t hesitate to contact me to discover more.
