About Me / Hire Me

Hello and welcome to my little corner of the Internet. I’m Ben Holbrook, one of the lucky ones in life who’s managed to make a full-time living from their passions.

I’m an old fashioned creative at heart and most at peace in the world while writing, filming and taking photos. I shoot digital but always aim for an analog look and feel. Over-sentimentality and nostalgia mean everything to me. ‘Newness’ turns me off.

This website is something of a portfolio of my work, so you’ll find plenty of examples of my film, photography and writing work, but it’s also an artistic endeavour in its own right.

Oh, and, yes, I am the same Ben Holbrook from Driftwood Journals travel blog. I just felt I needed an artistic outlet for my non-travel-related work. So here we are…
