Ben Smith

From a young age, I’ve always enjoyed taking great photographs – initially using just a point ‘n’ shoot camera at the zoo or a motorsport event, but I soon realised the only way to improve was to buy a better camera.


Armed with professional kit, I was asked to photograph a 21st birthday party and had encouraging feedback – it launched my career.


I love interacting with everyone; producing laughter and smiles, whilst making everyone look their best – you’ll be proud to share your images.


I’ll go the extra mile too; I value the friendships that form and really want you to have memories to cherish.


A ‘Sports Science and Coaching Degree’ and working with children with special educational needs for nearly ten years has given me a privileged insight into how to get the best from children.

I started as a disability sports coach and then became a teaching assistant and a specialist support worker for children with Autism. I absolutely loved working with the children, making a difference and enhancing their lives.


Equally at home in the corporate environment, I have been photographing events and business people – recording special occasions and documenting people and brands:
