So, WHO IS BENJI?

(And some other random nonsense)

Hi, I'm Benji, the man behind the camera 

Hello Guys, Gals & Non-Binary Pals,

You're probably wondering how I got into photography? No? Well, I'm going to tell you anyway.

I originally studied Fashion design at University in Canada (NSCAD in Nova Scotia to be exact) from there on I jumped from one art medium to another and some 15 years later decided I was quite good at this photography malarky and I wanted to do it for a living.

I class myself as an alternative wedding photographer not because I take photos of alternative couples or venues (although I do sometimes) but because I think being an alternative wedding photographer means to be creative and unique in approach.

Shooting in a documentary style means that my photos will be candid, so I will mostly be lurking around in the background trying to go unnoticed. I want people to look comfortable in their photos and not rigid or overly staged or posed. When the party hits, I'll get involved to match the energy of the guests around me and blend in. The photos will be more authentic and personal this way... Plus I just want to have a good time too!

A few personal things about me you may or may not be interested in:

  • I live in the scenic town of Westerham, Kent with my partner and 3 dogs. (Photos to follow)

  • We foster way too many dogs, that's a lie, there is never enough dogs!

  • I'm a Dad to an awesome 8-year-old little lady called Luna.

  • Occasionally I like to write the odd Haiku.

  • Incubus is my favourite band.

  • I do not like Marmite.

  • I am Vegan (I was always going to mention it at some point).

  • I am a singer in a band as well

  • You will never... NEVER out pun me...

  • I was once an ordained Minister (didn't cost me anything, just saw something online and thought, "why the heck not?")

Well, that's me in a nutshell, if you're still reading at this point then you must be scraping the bottom of the barrel for photographers. There are a few buttons below and some lovely personal pictures of things that are not wedding related, let's call it a mini snapshot into the life of Benji.
