I am a professional photographer based in Edinburgh working all over Scotland for commercial and industrial clients.
I travelled to Edinburgh in 1997 to study here and decided to make it my home. I grew up in England, spending most of my childhood in Yorkshire.
Originally my professional work concentrated on private commissions and press photography but now I concentrate on commercial, corporate, PR and industrial photography as well as gigs and festivals for a music photo agency in London.\r\n\r\nIn late 2007 I began working farther afield around Scotland. All of my commercial work is now digital and integrated into my website www.bencollins.co.uk where clients are able to login and view contact sheets of their shoots. I plan to continue my commercial work and am hoping to specialise in architectural and interior photography and am working on an architectural stock library of Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Personally I'm also interested in working for charities and NGOs and plan to travel to Afghanistan to cover the efforts of a Scottish charity that has a school building program in the north of the country.
