“I’ve always been interested in photography and some of my earliest memories are of my mum’s darkroom on the stairs and seeing the photos just taken developed there and then. At school my escape was the school darkroom and there I continued to learn and experiment with the photographs I was taking, learning and enjoying losing myself in photography. I still have all the old camera’s my mum and grandparents used to capture images of our childhood. I’m fascinated by photography and the landscape around me and live to explore and try to capture the beauty I see everywhere around me while trying to capture something a little different if I possibly can. I feel very lucky to live in such a stunning place. The Lake District never disappoints, and I find it beautiful in all weathers, especially at night. I love using long exposures to try and capture the beauty I see around me daily. I hope you enjoy my photography as much as I do.”
An award winning, published professional photographer based in the Northern Lake District, UK. Recently the winner of the Astro Photographer of the Year 2019 People & Space category, Ben’ work was shown across the world being featured in Forbes, the BBC, ITV News at 10, The Guardian, Times, Independent and many more. Even the European Southern Observatory in Chile gave him and the other entries a mention.  All a source of great pride to Ben.
