Ben Reed
Creative Director / Videographer / Photographer

Video • Photo


I am a interdisciplinary creative thinker, leader, and doer driven by the desire to tell compelling stories and see great ideas through.

I am an award-winning creative director, photographer, and videographer—ultimately, I love the challenge of telling evocative and compelling stories that move people to action. I pride myself on developing creative assets that are strategically-driven, compelling, well-designed, and ultimately achieve the client’s goals. I believe my most valuable skill is my ability to be both left- and right-brained and effectively coalesce strategic, creative, and technical thinking.
