Ben Bergh’s interest in photography manifested at a very early age. At 11 years old, he started experimenting with a Vivitar 1980 Instamatic, and whilst initial results were less than favourable, the passion was fueled and the know-how followed. Having grown up in Somerset West, Ben relocated to the Northern Suburbs of Johannesburg in the mid 90’s joining the fast-paced ad industry. He gained valuable experience and expertise in graphic design and marketing, with a focus on advertising, portrait and architectural photography.
At the same time, his love of skateboarding inspired yet another passion, action photography. Today Ben Bergh of Ben Bergh Photography is considered one of, if not the best action photographers in South Africa, and has had countless photos published in top local and International Magazines.
Ben is currently an established advertising photographer, his photographs inspiring amateurs and professionals alike. His new studio is rigged with state-of-the-art lighting equipment, ready to give your brand that tailor-made look and feel.
Ben’s proficiency in the technical side of photography is not only of benefit to his clients, it has also recently earned him the cover shot, profile interview and technical write-up in PIX magazine, – SA’s most authoritative photographic magazine.
