Ben Yacobi

London GB April 2015
Easy going but highly professional music and events photographer with a background in broadcasting and a philosophy degree that encourages him to write about himself in the third person.

Photography highlights include: behind the scenes projects for BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Radio 5 live; featuring in the Island Life exhibition in Soho which displayed printed photographs celebrating 50 years of Island Records; featuring in the artwork of a number 1 selling album (also listed as a backing vocalist in the same album!); working as tour photographer with The Feeling; featuring in various newspapers and magazines across the world (as far afield as Sydney Morning Herald); working as stills photographer at various music video and promo shoots; working as lead photographer for a wedding at St Paul's Cathedral; more of my wedding shots used by OK! Magazine for a different photo story; working as an event photographer for large scale corporate functions; had my product photography used by glossy lifestyle magazines such as Home; and most recently taken pictures of orangutans in Sumatra - some of them were easier to work with than many of my human subjects.

Also... I've written reviews and articles for various music sites; have worked with ITV to create a new programme format; worked as a Gaffer on productions with an Academy Award winner director (Gaffer manages the lighting alongside the Cinematographer); and in my early days did a bit of A&R scouting.
