As a youngster, I spent most of my time sneaking into my dad’s camera-filled man-cave and listening to his Opeth and Joe Satriani CDs. I’d be standing there silent, frozen like a popsical, letting the aggressive guitar solos’ melt all over me.
I grew up, deep down in the burbs of Sydney. I was a real sport-lover, so I spent most of my time hassling all 6 of my creative and oddball siblings to play backyard cricket or 3 a side footy.
A little later in life, I caught ye ol’ travel bug and spent 4 months backpacking around a landscape lavish Asia. My shoestring budget, Massaman Curry diet and a mate, Josh convinced me to pick up a camera and start shooting what I saw. The photo-maker felt good in my palms. We really connected.
While sworn off relationships, donuts and women in general, I stumbled on a care-free, confident as hell, blonde bombshell. She was fun and risky and independent. Being around her lit a flame inside me that I hadn’t felt before. You better believe, I made her my wife. We laughed at the same memes, it would have been rude not too.
Bre convinced me that my photography made her appreciate the world around her - as she watched me lose my mind over mountains and paying attention to the details in doorways. I dreamed up a time where my Photography Super-Power could capture that connection between people and emotion, as well as my gorgeous wife and coloured buildings. Here we are guys, now I’m (maybe) your wedding photographer!
These days we enjoy spending time with our charismatic and ridiculously cheeky two year old, building sand palaces, adventuring and constructing lego castles fit for Dumbledore. In complete transparency, I own too many cameras to count on all my fingers (and yours) and I edit my weddings deep in the depths of Opeth and Satriani. Im sure my dear old dad would smile ear to ear at the very thought of this.
Now you know me, I’d like to hear about you. If you like my work, get in touch - let’s make some magic.
"Ben made us feel so very comfortable through our engagement shoot. He became an integral part of our journey well beyond our wedding day. Our photos, and the man and his smile behind them, are now part of our lives more than I could have imagined. I cannot wait to catch up with him for coffee and give him a massive hug. My heart is touched when I see his photos of our day, I am within my memories and all the feelings of the day come flooding back."
“Ben is one of the friendliest people we have ever met. Genuine and engaging, we instantly got along. We found Ben very professional, whilst connecting and communicating on a personal level, making us feel very comfortable having our photo taken. It was a very natural and organic experience. Prior to the day, Ben scouted the most amazing locations for our photos. The timings for each location were impeccable, knowing the light would be perfect. Without Ben, we would not have even known these locations existed – he had everything researched and planned so meticulously. Ben was poised for our most important moments with a subtle elegance, managing to combine the beautiful surroundings and landscape as well as the raw emotion between us. we feel so much emotion from our Wedding photos; we really believe the images captured were a perfect representation of our day. We’ve recommended him to all of our friends”
“Benedict is an amazing photographer, who captured our wedding day and engagement brilliantly. Bianca and I will be hitting our one-year anniversary next month, and to this day people still mention how absolutely magical our photographs are. He knew what to do, and what to say, but most importantly, his style of framing and capturing moments is what makes us fall in love with that special day over and over.
We invested a lot of time in searching for a photographer, around Australia and internationally, and were stoked to finally find Benedict. We were very excited that he was available and we asked him if he could be our “lifetime photographer” haha, not joking”
Ben photographed our wedding in 2019. We were sooooo impressed but the quality of photos that we received and the amount of amazing options. He was super comfortable to be around and I love that he captured so many natural looking photos. He is very creative, professional, and fast at getting the photos to you. We have so many beautiful memories from our day thanks to Ben. I would highly recommend him for your big day!
We were having a difficult time finding a local photographer who suited our style and was willing and able to shoot our wedding in the countryside of France. Running out of hope, my (now) wife sent Benedict a message vie Instagram and that spawned an amazing relationship! We could not be happier with the results we got. Benedict fit in perfectly with our friends and most people thought he was just one of our friends who happen to have some pretty fancy camera gear and a cool accent. Our whole objective was candid photo’s and subtle images and we got exactly what we wanted; in spades!
From what could have been a huge mistake, it turned out to be one of the best decisions we made…along with making a friend. I can not recommend Benedict enough…especially if you are in Eastern Canada so he can come and visit. ;)”
