Introduction: Fashion photography is storytelling. As the model steps in front of my camera, I become a director. The lights, a little atmosphere in the air, a cinematic moment captured... we all escape to a different place. Fashion is about life, drama, an escape. Fun Facts About Me: x Lived in Ethiopia, Israel, Egypt for the first 16 years of my life. x Traveled enough places to fill up my passport. x Settled in Washington D.C. since 2016, where I was born. x Love anything to do with outdoors. x In quarantine I picked up running and became obsessed, I never was a runner. x I was a former DJ, buy my mixtape! (kidding) x Learned hacking when I was 15, my friends hated me for it. x I turned straight and got a career in Security Analytics Consulting for the last 6 years. x I love poker, even though I suck at it. I really really suck at it. x I bought my camera in May 2018 to take travel pictures, never thought I’d be doing fashion photography. I’ve been obsessed ever since.

Ben does absolutely awesome work! He did my 50th Birthday Party and Photo Shoot and the pictures were amazing! He is very creative and extremely professional. I am so happy that I chose him to capture those special moments of my Milestone Birthday that I will cherish forever!

This was my first professional photo shoot and Ben, put me at ease and gave direction which helped to make our final photos fantastic. I initially hired Ben, for one day but had so much fun with him we asked him to take photos the next day and he accommodated me at a moments notice. Both days yielded photos and memories that will last me a lifetime.

I was hesitant about using Ben to capture photos for my 40th Birthday, his portfolio looked more suited for models & showcases, with some openings thrown in. I took a chance, and was happy with the majority of the photos. Despite giving a shot list, some photos were missed (mainly with guests & not taking a pictures of the same table setting....would have loved to seen my place setting name snapped in a professional photo) and this being my first time, some direction and guidance would have been appreciated. In addition, he stated photos would be ready in a week, and then said he had a wedding prior to me, and it would be another week., and then he said he lost some photos, but then found them (that would have changed this rating). Communication is key, but I should have gotten that information upfront vs after the event. For something easy and simple, I would use again, and I did refer him to a friend for her 40th birthday party. The access to completed photos has been a breeze.

The fist professional photo shoot I've ever done & Ben was great to work with. I had a great experience because Ben was guiding me through the poses; where to stand, where to look, etc. I will definitely work with Ben again!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I’m not cheap. I price based on my ability to work with people from totally different backgrounds and achieve a desired result. I pride myself on being an icebreaker. As far as skill I let my work speak for itself.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Starting with the end in mind, understanding the image they had in their head when they reached out to me, and helping them recreate or crystallize that vision.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Photographing almost everyday for the past year as well as hours and hours on YouTube. I built my own studio where I tinker and experiment with different kind of crazy setups. I love this stuff.
