Classically trained in painting, Ben sees light, color, and storytelling in a unique way. While a paramedic working on the set of Disney's John Carter, Ben entered the world of cinematography and began shooting short films and assisting on sets.
Through cinematic lighting & coloring, as well as skills in marketing & branding, Ben has directed & filmed dozens of campaigns, using both videography and photography. Focusing on the feelings created, Ben has shot lifestyle campaigns for bicycle teams, sporting good stores, and two local firearms companies, as well as filmed & worked broadcast for rodeos and concerts.
Familiar with Canon, Nikon, RED, Panavision, and Arri, Ben brings a wealth of experience and adaptability to any branding or awareness campaign. His passion project, the Utah Firefighter Calendar, has raised over $10,000 to date for the American Cancer Society.
Recently, he's directed his passion in Boudoir Photography where he creates experiences that empower women and promote celebration of self-love. The women he shoots are amazingly real and often leave transformed with a new confidence and appreciation for themselves they never had before or hadn't felt in a long time.
When he's not behind the camera, Ben's training for his next Strongman event, Powerlifting competition, Spartan Race, fly fishing, or cooking.
