Ben Morris’s love of photography was born at a young age, when he was given a camera by his Father as a tenth birthday present.
Ben was born in North Yorkshire, England, and studied Photography at the London Institute under his tutor Mark LeBon, before taking his own approach to photography and experimentation in different photographic mediums after leaving university and moving to New York.
Ben started taking photograph’s in his teenage years of everything he could find, moulding the aesthetic of a photographic auteur and documenting youth culture for The Face magazine in London as his first commission when he was 19.
Ben’s dynamic and exciting approach to his photography and moving image stand out greatly at a time of renewed optimism and excitement in the creative industry, finding the interesting in the normal and the modernity of the photographic and fashion industry in the modern age.
Bens work reveals his unique ability to combine his visual imagery with intimate artistic interpretation, a result of his time working as a reportage photographer before he moved into fashion, his love of painting and his collage work. As a direct consequence of Ben's love for photography and his personality, his shoots and sets are full of positive energy, adventure and humour which is greatly valued by clients and colleagues alike.
Ben shoots on a range of different mediums and cameras to create the perfect artistic setting for whatever subject he is working with on any set day.
Whilst mentoring photography students in 2016 he developed a way to teach students with dyslexia to learn photography using colours instead of numbers, a practice he still uses to this day to help photography students and developing photographers on his team.
