I remember taking my first photograph as a child using an old 1970’s Nikon SLR. Twenty five years later, and my passion and love of photography has only grown and grown. I live and breathe through my lenses and quite simply adore taking photographs. I didn’t actually study photography… I spent my college and university years following my other great passion, biodiversity conservation. I was lucky enough to spend time in some of the most remote and spectacular places on the planet, and in completing many research projects for my degree, masters and PhD, my love for photography grew and grew. So instead of crawling around the amazon jungle tagging crocodiles or climbing cloud-capped peaks on the Galapagos Islands looking for giant tortoises, I now travel to equally spectacular places, but with my camera in my hand… not a magnifying glass.
Whether strolling through Camden Market on a crisp winters morning, lying on a deserted, sun drenched Indonesian beach or wondering the graffiti-laced back streets of Brooklyn, photography is always on my mind, and a lens never far from my eye. For me, capturing the light, the colour, and the emotion in every image I take is what makes this my passion. I love working with people, whether at flamboyant London parties or at intimate editorial fashion shoots: photography is all about personality. I am based in Hampstead, London but travel around the country and indeed abroad, having worked in Africa, New York, South East Asian, Australia and across Europe.
In the last 18 months I have had my work published in numerous professional photography magazines and online blogs. I have also been a featured photographer in HELLO! Tatler and GQ magazines. I love shooting weddings too so if you are interested in my services please refer to my website, www.benmooreweddingphotography.com
