Life’s the longest picture you’re ever gonna take

Ben Harper

A founder member of Creative Shots, I joined so I could learn how to use my new digital camera and improve my photography skills. 

My favourite subjects are gardens, nature, the coast and Victorian graveyards. 

I love to wander with my camera – I find it very therapeutic and satisfying as it allows me to be in the moment.

I am very privileged to be a volunteer photographer for the National Garden Scheme.

I use a Nikon D7200, often with Lensbaby lenses. I find the Lensbaby lenses afford me some creativity which I cannot always get from the light or weather.
