About Me

Ben Priest

I’m a UK photographer based in York. As a York photographer I welcome both local work and work across the UK. As well as photography I have also branched out into completing video work. If you want an amazing wedding, a professional head shot or any other form of photography, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch! I look forwards to hearing from you soon! -Ben

Nice things people have said.

Mary & Rory (Wedding Photography)

“Ben was brilliant throughout the whole process. The engagement shoot was fun and Ben helped us to feel relaxed around the camera. Ben was then great at the wedding, fitting in seamlessly and producing for us a set of gorgeous, natural looking photos which really captured the event. We were thrilled with the photos and Ben’s dedication and talent were clear.”

Laura & Simon (Wedding Photography)

“Ben did the photography for my wedding and we got some amazing results. I have lost count of the number of family and friends that have commented what great photos we have and how hard working he was on the day.”

Alison Bell (Event Photography)

“Ben is very creative with his photography and gifted at capturing the expression and character of people and the atmosphere of events using inventive variety and angles in his pictures. Very hardworking and dedicated to his art.”

Harriet Mayne (Head Shot)

“Ben is a brilliant photographer and would highly recommend, he produces stunning images for his clients and has done my headshots for me for the past 3 years! Ben is professional and always has a smile on his face!”

Alice Simpson (Head Shot)

“Ben is a fantastic photographer, who is very professional and returns photos very promptly. Would highly recommend him!”

Sam Hindmoor (Head Shot & Photography Tutoring)

“Ben is a talented photographer and I was really pleased with the results!”

Amy Brunskill (Pet Photography)

“Fantastic photographer, thank you so much for capturing such beautiful photos of Millie! I love how you bring out the colours in the images to make them so magical as well!”

Tina O’Connor (Graduation Photography)

“My graduation ball was photographed by Ben and the photographs were amazing. I ordered a photo book to have something to look back on and remember my special day. The pictures captured the evening perfectly and is something that I can keep to remember my university days! Highly recommendΒ 

Claire Neumann (Family Photography)

“I recently had a family photo shoot with Ben. He was great and made us all feel at ease, especially my little girl. The photos are lovely, exactly what I was hoping for. Would definitely recommend him.”

Sarah Keeley, University of Cumbria

“The University of Cumbria Careers and Employability team worked with Ben to capture and run a photo booth for the Bright Futures Award Ceremony in March 2015.

I have no hesitation in recommending Ben as an ideal photographer to work with on a project of this nature, as a key member of the team Ben demonstrated professionalism and excellent organisational skills.

Ben worked with our team to ensure that the shots were planned and set up to deliver the results we were looking for in terms of look and feel of the final product. On the evening of the event he ensured that staff, students and guests were put at ease during the photography process and liaised with relevant staff to ensure that the resulting photographs would be of a high standard of professionalism.

Ben worked well with the rest of the events team to set up the right shots, and also helped with general event photography which was done in a discreet way so as to put everyone at ease.

From start to finish Ben ensured that as clients we were kept informed of the developments with the photo booth. He has excellent communication skills and demonstrated a high degree of professionalism when dealing with our VIP guests and speakers.”
