    Ben is and exceptional photographer. He makes it fun to have your picture taken. And for me, that was a great plus. Ben makes you feel comfortable, and is non-judgmental and is a great find. He's knowledgeable and funny and knows exactly what he's doing.

    I had a *great* time getting business professional head shots taken by Ben, and I absolutely *hate* having my picture taken. Ben was helpful in suggesting approaches to taking the photos, and he delivered the final product promptly. Throw in a dash of humor, and what's not to like?

    I really enjoyed working with Ben. He made me feel relaxed and confident. Most importantly, I loved the results. The headshots I received from him were just what I needed to help me land the roles I was seeking.

    Ben is a fantastic photographer, patient and creative. He will help find ideas for those who don't know what they want, and help fulfill the creative ideas of others. I am very pleased with the work he's done for me, and will be returning in the future.

    Very easy to work with, and very professional. He coached me to get a great shot! Very affordable too. Definitely recommend him.

    Working with Ben was a very comfortable, enjoyable experience. I'll definitely contact him for my next photographic experience....

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Call Kenneth Benjamin Reed! But no seriously, take your time and research thoroughly. The Internet is great for reviewing photographer's work. I feel like good reviews and solid recommendations make really big difference on who I am considering to hire.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. A proofing gallery is very helpful, as it allows the client to see the entirety of a shoot and *choose* their favorite takes. Leaving this up to a photographer is fine, but it helps to feel like a part of the process.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. Can I see your portfolio? Do you have a studio to shoot in? Do you have business insurance? What size of an image do you give me?

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I guarantee quality, professional service. ...with style!

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. One of the most fulfilling aspects of my work is that I can actively apply creative solutions to every assignment. Weather, timing, and all sorts of other variables make every job challenging, and I just love that.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. "Hey, I've seen your work, Ben Reed! Aren't you based out of Hawaii?"

Yeah there's a LOT of photographers named Ben Reed in the world, which is why I also include my first name. Kenneth Benjamin Reed, the photographer you need.

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. I was raised by a wild pack of photographers, my parents. I've enjoyed photography all my life but only in my late twenties did I decide to pursue it as something more than just a fun hobby. It's been a great number of years since then, and I couldn't be happier!
