Ben is an established Melbourne based commercial photographer. After studying at the Photography Studies College, he gathered real world experience in London when he assisted some of the best in the business. Working with talent such as Paul McCartney, Manchester United FC and The British Royal Family, Ben discovered his passion for portrait photography and working with people. It was clear that this was the path he wanted to pursue.
Now, back in Melbourne his latest commissions include jobs for Blundstone, Nissan Australia, Ford India, Carlton FC, Musashi, Everlast , Cricket Australia and Melbourne Arts Centre while continuing to shoot for non for profit, fashion and his personal project My Dad’s My Mate.
My Dad’s My Mate is an ongoing series of portraits depicting fathers and sons celebrating their relationship. Its aim is to raise awareness of depression and related illness in Australia by capturing and sharing the experiences and insights of Australian men and their fathers. The work aims to shed positive light on the father – son relationship, and overcome any stigma attached to words ‘love you dad’ and ‘love you son’. The series has recently made the addition of an online series called “MDMM CONVERSATIONS”. The interviews show us a brief look at the dynamics between fathers and sons in Australia.
