Ben Gold

Photographer Overview

I’m fascinated by people, how they interact and behave. I love watching the world and capturing the everyday moments of life that most people take for granted.

I specialise in reportage, lifestyle and portraiture - creating authentic, optimistic content for ad agencies, design teams and clients directly.

Raised in Brixton by a stained-glass artist, a left-wing Jazz musician and later a professor of theoretical physics my influences growing up were certainly eclectic! As a result, I learnt to look at the world from many different perspectives.

I fell in love with photography at secondary school and when I was (reluctantly) moved, aged 16, from the buzz of south London to a quiet village in Oxfordshire, we discovered that our new family home had once been owned by the founder members of Magnum. I took this as confirmation that I was on the right career path!

Inspired by these documentary photographers, I learnt to shoot on the frontline of political demonstrations and the mostly nocturnal world of festivals. It was here that I began developing the ability to capture unique moments in almost any environment.

I graduated from the University of Brighton with a photography degree in 2002, then spent 10 exciting years travelling the world as an assistant photographer before starting to shoot my own commissions.
