” Hi VOLO Fans, I’m from a small state Perth in Western Australia & if I’m not enjoying our beautiful beaches you’ll either find me in the gym or working at my full time job specializing in women’s Hair colors & Hair extensions. I’m also about to move into men’s barbering.
In the middle of all that I’m always on the hunt for new photographer – working together to come up with new concepts or ideas & content
I’m also very interested in traveling the world as I can’t stay in one spot to long – got that travel bug ☺
If you’d like to help me so I can continue to follow my dreams by traveling the world. That would be much appreciated ❤👇🏼

Meet the Photographer: Benjamin Riches
“Whether I am shooting portraits in an intimate setting, or creating images for large print campaigns, having fun on set is paramount to achieving great images, you’ll know what I mean after we work together. Not everyone loves shooting in a stuffy studio, not everyone loves working on location, just know, wherever we are creating, my only job is to make sure everyone in front of my camera looks good, sometimes ill have to push people to get those perfect moments; but it will be worth it. “
Starting his career managing a studio in Perth, Australia Benjamin was granted mentoring from other top creatives in Australia, leading him to working with GQ Australia, Black Magazine, Maxim Australia, MTV, Sony, Transperth, TAB, St Johns Ambulance, Rio Tinto, Bank West, Bendigo Bank, Royal Life Saving,Neil deGrasse Tyson, Montaigne, Tony Hawk, Scott Ludlam, Nick Waterhouse, Future Music, Stereosonic, Origin, All My Friends, Listen Out and many more.
He is the father of 2 daughters, a fan of political satire and does not own a single pair of plain socks.
Living by a hard and fast rule holding pre production more important than almost anything else, allows all eyes to be focused on creating beautiful, organic images.
His approach to the people he is shooting is immersive, flexible and filled with banter, working on set with Benjamin has been described as a gym session in a 70s disco.
