Blue Mountains Featured Photographer: Ben Pearse

15 November 2013

Our hearts go out to all those affected in the recent bush fires. Photographer Ben Pearse has captured many beautiful moments in the Blue Mountains and the following places have fortunately missed the damage to the region.

I grew up in the beautiful Blue Mountains, NSW Australia. During my early childhood years my uncles would take my brothers and I on vast treks throughout the region, often just camping under the stars for weeks at a time. In my mid teenage years my older brother and I started rock climbing in the blueys and I think this was the real catalyst for becoming a photographer.

I picked up a film camera in 2004 and proceeded to teach myself how to take pictures. Thousands of photos later and a change in career directions allowed me to spend more time researching photography. I love all things about photography and I consider it a real journey that I thoroughly enjoy being on. Finding mood and perhaps a slightly varied take on a scene is something I like to present to the viewer if I can. One of the best reasons for taking photos in the mountains is you can achieve four seasons in a day, as the weather is quite varied and its mood can change by the minute.

Over the last two years I’ve been working as a freelance photographer where possible. Whether its photojournalism, functions, portrait work or selling my landscape & nature work as prints, I am truly happy behind the lens. 2014 will see me concentrate on wedding photography as a more sustainable a viable career path as a photographer. However any spare time will see me outdoors trying to capture that elusive great mood in a landscape scene…
