Ben grew up in Dorset, and spent countless days of his childhood drawing. With the scenery of the Jurassic Coast, and his uncle, a professional photographer as dual inspirations, the camera was a natural progression. In 1998, on his 15th birthday, Ben was given an Olympus OM1 and his photographic adventure began. After many hours in the darkroom developing negatives and making enlargements, he obtained a 1st class degree in Photography at university. Since then work with the lens has taken Ben to over 50 countries; from The Accursed Mountains of Albania to Milford Sound in New Zealand, capturing the landscapes and cultures that make these places. Ben has twice been a finalist (2011, 2017) for the Travel Photographer of the Year Competition. Alongside his personal work Ben has shot ad campaigns for Chevron in Kazakhstan and Chrysler-Jeep in Hong Kong, and photographed events from the Palio race in Italy to kickboxing in Cambodia. Ben’s work has appeared in numerous publications including: National Geographic, Conde Nast, Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, The Times, The Guardian and The Economist.

I COULD BE BUILDING BOATS
Born by the sea, raised by a woodsman in, in a parallel universe I’m building boats
In this world I confine people to a rectangular box and press a button.
I’ve travelled a lot and sometimes people pay me to do it. My exploring led me to Bristol in 1998, I only intended to stay for a weekend but the city got a hold of me. However, I still don’t like cider.
I started my career as a journalist, first on a newspaper, then on a golf magazine and as a freelance editor. I gave this up in 2006 to become a freelance photographer. Some people thought it was crazy but I now take pictures and people pay me for it. The boat building will have to wait.
Emmanuel was born in 1977 in Saumur (loire valley). Torn between his two passion, music and photography, he decided for the second as a career. In 1997, he served during his military time in Paris at the etablissement cinematographique et photographique des armees. This job led him to work closely with the French government. For four years, he then continued to follow the prime minister at the time, Lionel Jospin in all his national and international trips as its official photographer, confronting himself to a wide range of situations and subjects. once Jospin’s mandate ended, Emmanuel left the administration and joined imapress agency in 2001 covering societal and political stories. Rich from these experiences, he decided to go freelance in 2004 and has been multiplying collaborations with various wire agencies (Reuters, Gamma, Strates) publications and corporations worldwide since then. Along with long term personal projects about Tchernobyl and immigration issues in France, he covers various stories about politics, sports, lifestyle, and fashion always in a very personal style and numerous corporate and editorial portraits.
I have a pretty simple life. I like traveling, coffee, and laughing. . . ideally, all at once. I live on a small farm in Ireland, where my partner Olivia and I have an animal sanctuary. I was first handed an old Kodak Brownie camera at age 10. I went on to college where I studied photography and graduated at the top of my class. After a handful of photo jobs, I stumbled into producing. With its fast-paced creativity and non-stop action in captivating images, the advertising world swept me right off my feet. In my years in this industry, I’ve worked as a photographer, director and producer for clients like Sony, Cadillac, Honda, Bushmills, HP and IBM. I’ve organized and executed photo and video shoots for everything from food and yoga to homes, cars, and aerospace. If you can think of it, I’ve put a shoot together for it. After all this time, I’ve realised why I truly love what I do; I love people’s stories, and the chance to help tell those stories. And I especially love telling those stories using visual media, which brings depth and dimension to a narrative like nothing else.

Born in Switzerland, DANIEL HAGER is a Zurich based photographer, director and cinematographer.
He likes to be outdoors. Loves cities, remote valleys and a good coffee.
He likes traveling, enjoying the aura of the places and people he discovers, the lights, the magnanimity.
All of these experiences have helped to built his artistic style.
The beauty of life is its different qualities of light, texture, and harmonious imbalance. Capturing this is what most inspires me as a photographer.
I see the world through the conscious and subconscious flavors and aromas of my childhood memories. A childhood that included my earliest years living in Guatemala, then moving through 36 states in an old-beater Mercedes van with my family, a few months in Thailand, and eventually landing in Florida as a teenager. Throughout my life, I was surrounded by delicious meals, rich cultures, and vibrant experiences, which were all nurtured by my parents and have affected my ability to find beauty anywhere.
I left home at 19 to start my own journey, which took me to New York, , Germany, France, and finally California. The first part of my career was spent as a personal chef, which eventually led me to attend The Academy of Art University for photography. From there I was staff photographer at Munchery, one of the first food startups in the US where I built and managed a photography team of five photographers in four states. I was the marketing photographer for Good Eggs, a tech based food startup in Silicon Valley. I’ve since freelanced for a variety of brands like Postmates, Udemy, and Brandless, editorials like Martha Stewart Living, National Geographic Magazine, Healthyish, and established companies like Jello and Avocado of Mexico. Clearly my first love is food photography, but thanks to my vagabond upbringing, I’m easily able to capture the storytelling of lifestyle + travel that any client needs.
When I was 19, I knew I wanted to be a photographer. I started training as a photographer in a portrait studio. At the time, it wasn’t clear that the direction was right, because the environment was too uninspiring for me. However, what did I discover? My empathy and how it is still an important tool for me when working with my customers.
Studying communication design with a focus on photography in Dortmund showed me another passion: social issues and pure life. How to focus on people is still my passion today. Reportage became my medium.But craftsmanship and passion are not everything. A large photo production is not possible without professional organization.
So it was good to get to know the other side:
As an art buyer at Media Consulta, Berlin, I acquired my know-how in production, organization and budgeting.
Four years in the BILD photo department followed. After a lot of learning, the time had come. You know the 10,000 hour rule? Well over 10,000 hours of photography had passed since I first tried to walk with the Polaroid camera:
In 2014 I started my own business as a photographer.
My focus: corporate branding and employer branding with a focus on the authentic portrayal of
people in their environment.
