|| About ||
If you have been reading these photographer write ups so far, you would notice that all the photographer I have chosen to speak so far have not only been Novice, Studying and Freelance but have been artists that I have been lucky enough to become friends with and see their skills develop, and Ben is by far, one of those people. Ben started seriously taking up photography in the middle of 2012 and has really grown not only as a photographer but as a person. When I asked him about what influences, Ben threw me Williem Ungerman, who is an influence of mine and someone who I have choose to do a write up, but also told me two others photographers, Chris Burkard and Nathan Tyack. Doing further research into these guys, I can really see how Ben has developed his skills from all three photographers and really excited something thats unique to him. Ben’s love is Coastal photography but also has a keen interest in Portraiture and other Landscape.

Ben’s talent in photography has been a big inspiration for me. The effort he put into his photography is beyond amazing as well as his love for the surf and beach life that can be seen in each photo just makes me appreciate his work so much. These photos above are just some of my favourite photos of Ben’s.
We are able to see that Ben really looks at the lighting of the picture he is taking which also heavily influences the colour of the photos. We are able to see in Photo 1,2 and 5 that no two photos are the same, which gives Ben’s photos that uniqueness because there is no two wave that are same. It also shows how skill-full in photography you have to be as well as understanding of the water you have to be. Sure, anyone can go out and take a photo but to get photos like this, there has to be a fair amount of understanding and skill.
I decided to chuck in the Black and White photos to show Ben’s diverse skills. Photos 3 and 4 are very bold but we can see to different styles. Photo 3 have a beautiful light vignette that really focuses the eye on the main focus. It kinda gives a look off what the human eye would see out there without the colour.
I have been extremely jealous of Ben’s fantastic skills (in a good way) and been influence to one day to head out into the water and do photos like this, cause thats what good artist do to a person.
