Conservation photography and filmmaking are powerful tools that can change people’s perceptions and inspire them to take action on environmental issues. Steve Benjamin is a prime example of a photographer and filmmaker who uses his art to make a difference in the world.
I tell stories to inspire people to act on environmental issues. That means shedding light not only on destruction but also solutions. Conservation stories are about people as much as wildlife—from the problems we create and the people who suffer the consequences to those who dedicate their lives to solving them. I work to communicate both the intrinsic value of nature and the ugly side of reality in compelling ways both locally and abroad
“I create ideas, teams, and imagery to bring about change in the world. If people don’t see, they will never know”
I love the collaborative nature of filmmaking and have worked on productions for commissioners including BBC, National Geographic, Disney, NHK, Apple, PBS, Smithsonian, ARTE, and SABC. I’ve worked with Wildspace Productions, Plimsoll, Earth Touch, and many others to bring their stores to life
