About

I am a Freelance Commercial Photographer specializing in Travel, Documentary, Event and Portrait Photography. Originally from the UK, I grew up in London and then Cornwall in England. I currently live and work in Tokyo, Japan.

I started my photographic career in the music industry, in London in the mid 2000’s where I worked with a variety of artists and music publications. In 2008 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 Japanese travel, tourism and culture.
I also take on portraiture assignments, and work with both Japanese and international event organizers, covering a wide range of events in Tokyo and beyond.

Want to enquire about working together on your latest project? You can contact me here.

Aside from freelance photography I also run a small business selling Fine Art Prints from my studio in Tokyo. All images are shot, printed and framed by myself, ready to be shipped around the world.
Working extensively in the Japanese travel industry for a number of years has afforded me the opportunity to visit a plethora of interesting and beautiful places, both on and off the beaten track, allowing me to shoot a range of locations, people and unique elements of Japanese culture. A selection of these images are available to buy as framed prints at my online print shop (coming soon).

In my spare time I like hiking, mountain sports and exploring forgotten places. I speak both English and Japanese.

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 about me:

ベンとは4年ほど前から、雑誌『アクセレレート』で一緒にお仕事をさせていただいております。インタビュー時やイベント会場での撮影、プロフィール画像など、様々な場面において異なる種類の写真を撮っていただいております。彼の素晴らしいところは、それぞれの場面に応じて異なるストーリー性を持った写真を撮るところです。作業も早く、責任感があり、仕事に対しても一切妥協がなく、かつ強い探究心を持っているため、こちらが求めていた質以上のものを撮って成果を出してくれます。彼のおかげで雑誌の質も上げることができ、本当に感謝しています。

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.
