Thank you for visiting my website.

I'm a professional photographer based in Hong Kong and my passion lies in helping to tell the stories of those putting people and the planet first. With almost two decades of experience in the non-profit sector, I have an intimate knowledge of the challenges of climate change and social justice in communities across the globe.

Since moving to Hong Kong, I've been fortunate to document and share stories about people dedicated to building a better community: volunteers helping to house and feed the homeless, entrepreneurial boat captains dedicating their free time to supporting marine conservation, and human rights advocates championing diversity and inclusion.

My work has been featured in The Globe And Mail, the Toronto Star, The Washington Post, The Guardian, Hong Kong Free Press, Coconuts Hong Kong, and the South China Morning Post.    

In 2020, I was shortlisted for the Justice Centre Hong Kong Human Rights Arts Prize for my series Seeing Beyond the Teargas, a selection of images highlighting some of the untold stories behind the recent Hong Kong protests. My work was recently published in Defiance, a documentary book about the 2019 protest movement, as well as The Nature of Water.

I'm proud to have worked with many NGOs in Hong Kong and in Canada, using the power of images to drive social action. I'm also honoured to have worked with  JAYU, an  innovative, Canadian charity that trains and inspires other photographers through workshops and mentorship programs.

If you are interested in working together, please send me a message. I'm available for portraits, special events, and editorial assignments.  I also offer photography workshops and fine art prints for sale. 

With gratitude,

ben
