About Ben

I'm a Brooklyn, NY based director of photography. I've worked here for 9 years, but I spend a fair amount of time working abroad. I mostly do documentary or commercial projects for a variety of clients, including: Vice Media, MTV, History Channel, Rockport Shoes, NFL, BET, ESPN, IFC, Sony Pictures, Facebook and Skype. I've also been fortunate enough to worked with top recording artists, such as Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Dawn Richard, Michael Kiwanuka, Nero, Keisza, and Siman Mobile Disco.
