I am a Freelance Commercial Photographer specializing in Travel, Lifestyle and Event Photography. Originally from England, I currently live and work in Tokyo.
I started my photographic career in the music industry, in London in the mid 2000’s working with a variety of artists and music publications. In 2007 I relocated to the rural setting of Nagano, in Japan to learn about Japanese language and culture. Two years later I relocated once again, to Tokyo, where I am now settled and working as a full-time freelance photographer. I work with a variety of clients in Japan and abroad, my main areas of focus are assignments related to the Japanese Travel Industry, Portraiture and Events.
Aside from this I also organize bespoke one-on-one and group Photowalks around the lesser known parts of Tokyo, focusing on the traditional and historic parts that the city has to offer. These provide keen photographers from out of town with a unique opportunity to discover and photograph parts of Tokyo that often get overlooked. I offer these Experiences through AirBnB and also privately through this site.
In my spare time I like hiking, mountain sports and exploring forgotten places.
And if you are interested in working together on any kind of creative project, or would just like to say hello feel free to contact me here in either English or Japanese. Thanks for stopping by today!
Nice things clients have said:
Working with Ben on our international conferences has always been extremely easy, efficient and seamless. He is fast, reliable and great in creating action photography from our events with a fast turn-around time, as well as also producing professional profile and detailed shots. Our company has been working with him for several years now on almost all continents and I would recommend his work without any hesitation.
