About me

en is an award-winning London based director and photographer working in commercials, online content and music videos. Born in ‘the potteries’ of stoke-on-trent and raised in the bucolic dorset countryside, Ben graduated from the Arts Institute at Bournemouth with a degree in directing and 3 Kodak commercial awards for his first spec commercial.

Ben's next project for Chevrolet was nominated for a D&AD Next director award. Since then Ben has shot commercials all over the world with agencies including McCann, M&C Saatchi, Leo Burnett, AMV and Google Creative. Ben's advert for 'The Cornerstone Partnership' was praised by media as global first for social innovation and premiered at London's city Hall, winning him a first prize at Summit Creative awards. His most recent BMW Motorrad spot was number three on Ad Forum's best of the month.

Ben’s work is deeply grounded in reality, but a reality captured in the most beautiful, nuanced way. Combining naturalistic performance with captivating cinematic visuals, he carefully dissects the textures of real life.
