Benjamin Luk is a nationally published fashion, editorial and advertising photographer based in Vancouver, BC. With diplomas in Motion Picture Production (Capilano College) and Professional Photography (Focal Point), Benjamin hasn't done much with either, but likes to mention them on his website for additional credibility.
Ben's passion for photography began with a borrowed
Olympus D-575 Zoom, a 3.2 MP consumer-level rangefinder. Eventually upgrading to a 6.0 MP Canon PowerShot S3 IS, Ben
was satisfied for a month. He now shoots on a 21.1 MP Canon 5D Mark II and a 10.1 MP Canon Digital Rebel XTi with Profoto and AlienBees strobes.
As soon as his lottery investments pay off, he plans on upgrading again
to a Hasselblad H3DII-50 so he can actually steal souls.
When not working as a photographer, Ben pretends to be a lighting technician for film and television. Most recently, he found himself working on the TV series "Fringe" and for NBC during the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games. Ben has also managed to convince Legacy Liquor Store that his recreational drinking somehow makes him a consultant. He holds WFCL1 certification from the International Sommelier Guild and is a Certified Beer Server through the Cicerone Certification Program.
Benjamin shoots fashion, advertising, portraits, headshots, corporate events, weddings and pretty much anything else involving people and bipeds shaped like them. His wedding work can be seen at BLPwedding.com.
