Ben Connolly Photographer

Associate of WPPI

My name is Ben Connolly, I’m a Photographer and a creative by nature. I’m a dog lover and I have a wicked sense of humour! I have been working behind the camera since 1996 and have shot around 4000 wedding corporate & portrait jobs in my career so far and I love creating something unique and magical every time I pick up the camera.

To many photographers, what they do is just a job, but to me it’s a passion. I photograph with a flair for creating natural glamour and showing off the beauty in any body shape, whilst at the same time capturing the raw emotion of a photojournalist. My style has been described as modern glamour meets light and bright, with the ability to make anyone look and feel amazing in front of my camera.

I currently shoot around 50 weddings along with many corporate & portrait jobs per year and I would love to create some magic with you.

I have been personally trained by 3 of the worlds top photographers in all facets of wedding photography and in 2016 became one of the Sunshine Coast’s most awarded photographers and the only Ted’s Cameras Australia Ambassador in Queensland.
