Scenic Images was founded in 2014 after a year long photographic journey around New Zealand. Tired from the events and commercial photography he had been doing for 10 years, Ben brought a campervan and set out to document the landscape of this beautiful country.
His aim was to produce high quality still images as well as time-lapse photography. The hard work paid off and he found his time-lapse videos being picked up by TVNZ to run nation wide on their network. He also found success when international photography library Getty Images picked up his work in 2015.
Ben's passion and career in photography was no doubt in his blood as one of his grandparents was an artist (sign writing and oil painting) and the other a very keen amatuer photography. He has fond memories when he was little watching his grandfather take photos and seeing the passion in his eyes for this art form.
After completing a diploma in contemporary photography at Unitec in 2003, Ben started his own business at the age of 21, mainly concentrating on sports but this quickly grew to covering events and doing commercial work for a number of clients.
We hope you enjoy Ben's artistic take on the wonderful landscape of New Zealand.
