At about the age of 7 my dad put a box brownie in my hands. I still have it, and occasionally take it off the shelf to open it and breath in its glorious scent of vintage nostalgia.

Always learning, evolving and growing; I’ve been likened to Dr Who for my excited frenetic energy and occasional mild eccentricities…

Photography is in my blood and it’s my absolute passion. My father was a photographer and it’s been my career since leaving college (I’m dare not say how long ago that was..!), having collected A Level, BTEC ND, City & Guilds in my subject.

I’ve done it all in terms of making pictures, and have worked with a huge range of clients, venues and products all over the world. I’ve worked in various portraiture studios, as a cruise ship photographer and have worked with some of the best Michelin stared chefs in the world photographing dishes and cooking methods for books and magazine publications.

I’m also experienced in macro photography having photographed a huge range of jewellery products over the years for a number of clients and I have also worked on construction sites providing imagery to the building industry (including plumbing components next to the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt).

I still take on a good number of commissions for corporate work, and if you need more information on this please check my other site here.

This said, my passions are people and personal interactions and these factors are what I think make a great wedding photographer. Wedding photography is a crowded market place but my experience from lots of different backgrounds has made me understand how to get the best images from a wedding day. Whilst this may seem a bit of a brag, I am truly a passionate photographer who loves every second of being behind the camera and I am dedicated to being at the very top of my game.

Away from the lens, Barney and Holly – our Jack Russell terriers – give me daily exercise, Helen, my partner, keeps me balanced and happy; and lastly our young son Rupert keeps my wits in order.

I love music (mostly anything from Jamie Cullum to ACDC, Blondie or even Pete Tong), films (think Christopher Nolan and Ridley Scott) and clever, witty and engaging TV series. I’m also a bit of a petrol head having owned various cars from a VW Beetle (one that was subsequently driven by James May!) to a Golf GTI and a Porsche 944. I’d love one day to tour the Alps in a Morgan plus 8 but I’m not quite sure how that will work with two dogs and Rupert!

We are absolutely delighted with our beautiful photos! You did such a lovely job of capturing our day and making us so at ease through it all (we both usually hate having our photos taken). Nothing but the highest praise for your work. You are an awesome, talented guy! Thanks so much Ben x

What a talented photographer! We couldn’t have been happier with the photographs that Ben took of our wedding! He worked so hard, constantly capturing special moments of the day. He was so easy-going and a pleasure to have around. The photographs speak for themselves but in case there is any doubt Ben gets our absolute 100% recommendation.
