About Me

Self PortraitWelcome to Ben Hodson Photography. I am a Wiltshire based professional photographer focussing on lifestyle photography. I am based in the beautiful village of Aldbourne near Marlborough.

What do I do: I produce photographs that reflect the people you love, parents, a child, a newborn. Good photography is all about capturing a look, a laugh or a slightly crooked smile that is so familiar to a loved one.

Where am I based: I am based in Aldbourne, halfway between Swindon and Marlborough. Surrounded by fields I have the ideal setting for informal outside photography. I am also very happy to travel to you. People are often more relaxed in familiar surroundings and that shows in the final images.

What fascinates me about photography is the ability to stop time – frame it and examine an instant, taking as long as one wants to examine every detail, every nuance of the subject, the light, the instant. I have been taking photographs ever since I was a 20 year old student when I spent a year living and working in Paris.

The rewards are strong too – seeing the reactions of people when they receive an portrait of a child, their family or their newborn baby and knowing that the photograph will produce pleasure for years to come.

How could I not love doing this !
