I was asked to photograph Ben for the BackUp Trust Transform magazine. Ben lives in my local area, so it was easy to decide on a suitable location to do the photoshoot. The aim was to capture Ben out and about, so we met in the afternoon and moved around a very small area to capture a set of images. The weather was cold, but Ben is very hardy and managed a good 90 minutes before we declared it a wrap.
The cover shot was Ben’s idea, right towards the end of the shoot. We tried a few variations, with a mix of natural light and off-camera-flash. It was a winner right from the start.
