Ben Morris is an experienced and dynamic photographer & director, born in North Yorkshire in England, he now lives in both New York and Paris.
Ben studied Photography in London 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.
Ben's warm and exciting approach to his photographs and moving image stand out greatly at a time of renewed optimism and excitement in the photographic industry. Ben’s work reveals his unique ability to combine his visual imagery with intimate artistic interpretation, a result of his time working as 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 humor which is greatly valued by clients and colleagues alike.
Ben shoots on a range of different mediums and camera's to create the perfect artistic setting for whatever subject he is working with on any set day.
As a result of this way of working his personal website changes, in it's entirety every single week, designed to be a constant flow of new photography in the sense of having a constantly changing online gallery with the feel of a physical one - the true ideal of what could be called a photo stream, featuring much of Ben's acclaimed documentary and art work as well as his portraits and fashion.
When working with film Ben is known for his photographic collages, and all multiple exposures on this site are done within the camera, on a single negative with no post production. Whilst mentoring photography students in 2016 he developed a way to teach students with dyslexia a way to learn photography using colours instead of numbers, a practice he still uses to this day to help students and developing photographers on his team.
Ben's strong narrative and sometimes candid style, and the capacity to document seemingly intimate moments has seen him shoot for magazines such as British Vogue, American Vogue, Vogue UA, Arena Homme +, Man About Town, Paper Magazine, Numero, Numero ART, Muse, Purple Magazine & The Last Magazine amongst many others.
Ben's campaign clients include, Maison Margiela, Y3. Mulberry, Phillip Lim, John Varvatos, Uniqlo, Nike, Yves Salomon, Prada, Fred Perry, The Protagonist, Adidas, Dunhill and many more.
