Ben Lee is an international photographer specializing in advertising and fashion photography.
Ben grew up in Vancouver, Canada. As the son of an architect, Ben learned to be creative in an environment that balanced artistry and practicality. Ben developed distinct styles in the art forms he pursued, from oil painting to jazz piano improvisation. He achieved acclaim in the art scene, and exhibited his paintings in Vancouver, Montreal, and Toronto. As well, he toured with his jazz band and participated in major jazz festivals in North America.
Ben enrolled in business school at McGill University in Montreal. During this time, Ben was introduced to photography, which instantly became a serious hobby and later a side business.
In 2008, Ben moved to London to pursue fashion photography professionally. In 2009, Ben co-founded luxury fashion & art magazine, The Hub Magazine. The magazine grew to enjoy a quarterly circulation of 25000. It was distributed in mainstream bookstores across the UK and in more than 25 countries, as well as in some of London’s most prominent hotels. As the Photography & Production Director of The Hub Magazine, Ben established himself as a credible image maker in London’s exciting scene.
Today, Ben works internationally with top creatives, for various brands. Ben splits his time mainly between London and Shanghai.
Ben communicates fluently in English as well as Mandarin Chinese.
