Ben grew up in the south of France. His father was a sailor and taught him everything about the ocean. Coached by his older brothers, he quickly fell in love with surfing and spent every moment possible in the ocean. He discovered photography at the age of 15 and started shooting surfing. After learning photography in Paris, He managed to achieve his dreams of travelling to Hawaii and shooting images. During the next couple of years, he traveled the world alongside professionals in search of photogenic landscapes and waves that has never been surfed before. At 22, he decided to move to Tahiti. Ben quickly made Teahupo’o’s famous wave his backyard and his favorite place to shoot. In the last years Ben has risen to the top of game being the one of the leading photographers based in the the tropical paradise called French Polynesia.
