Ben dedicated years to studying music and film. He has also worked as an assistant, cinematographer, editor, producer, artist, and is currently the owner of LHS. Ben understands the value of learning every part of your craft and his educational journey is a testament to that. Ben is also interesting and quite unique in his artistic expression because he has, "one foot in the classic, and one foot in the fresh" (as he would say). He believes there is no limit to the positive impact quality video and photography can have when produced with talent and passion.
