Hello! I'm Ben. I'm a professional photographer living in Prestwich, North Manchester.
So here's my approach to photography... I want to cover your wedding, event, gig, production, party or show because I love taking pictures. I'm a very relaxed and approachable guy. I don't get too involved, I leave that to the people whose job that is, I simply photograph your day.
"Documentary photography is a style of photography that provides a straightforward and accurate representation of people, places, objects and events..." - The TATE
I class myself as a Documentary Style Photographer. I want to capture the natural happy moments that happen when people aren't self aware, the smiles are authentic and so much nicer.
If you'd like to know more about my personal life, keep reading below....
I'm really unsure of how to describe myself so here are some common quick fire question answers...
I love Radio 4 comedies. I like podcasts about grammar and I'm a massive fan of all types music. I host a weekly radio show. My favorite TV show is Only Connect. My Favorite radio show is Iggy Confidential on BBC Radio6. I write a blog on which I post all my personal and day to day photography, mostly 35mm film photography. I've currently got an exhibition on at The Crooked Man Bar in Prestwich and you can also find some of my pictures in SK1 Record store in Stockport. I'm a keen cyclist. I try and go running in Heaton Park at least twice a week. In my spare time I try and squeeze in as much charity work as I can. I'm not long back from a cycling trip from Liverpool to Amsterdam and raised over £3,000 for youth homelessness charities. I love to travel with my partner Suzanne. I'm a big fan of helping communities and often take part in local events... You'll see me at this year's Prestwich Arts festival. Finally, I'm always up for meeting new people. Fancy a coffee?
Feel free to get in touch, I'd love to hear about your thoughts and ideas.
