Ben J Chinnery Photography



My name is Ben, and I am a highly-skilled event and portrait photographer. Whether it’s a gig, outdoors event or private function, big or small, rain or shine – I have the technical skills and experience to capture your day perfectly.

I was born in Reading, and grew up in a village not far from Newbury in West Berkshire. With a balance of built-up urban city and open country and woodland nearby, I grew to love spending time in both and especially photographing them. The steely blues and greys of Reading and the earthy browns and rich greens of Bucklebury and Greenham Common. The open spaces and lights of Thatcham in the snow. Can’t beat it. Swapping squirrels for seagulls, I then headed to Cornwall to study filmmaking at Falmouth University, and now here I am in Milton Keynes.

The three core principles of BJC Photography are three single words;

  • organic
  • authentic
  • personal

Whether I’m shooting an event, a landscape or a set of portraits, I always look to find those looks, gestures and moments that really capture the story of the moment. I’m not a big believer in staged images, and I think the best photographs are the ones that really reflect who a person is.

No matter what you need, it always starts with a conversation – get in touch today to find out how I can help.
