about BenErnst


Ben Ernst ( 1952) is an autodidact. He is a self taught photographer with over 40 years of experience. In the past years he has specialised in art nude photography and has worked with models with an artistic background such as dancers and actors. Together they work on a concept. The important part in the end result is the location, be it indoor or out. Through this an image evolves out of the concept, in which the relation between the model, photographer and location emerge.

‘Throughout the year we have models staying with us, for a couple of days, sometimes longer. Models fly out to shoots, but we have time to talk, eat and drink together. Talk about concepts, shoots, locations , photography we like, but also life in general This gives both sides the opportunity to know eachother better. Most models I know for a longer period, we worked on several shoots. I think models are at ease during the shoot and this shows ( I think)’

Rene Margritte: "There is no change. There is no art without life".

  • Your portfolio is unbelievably varied and fantastic. I could spend days viewing these superb images!

    • Thnx, happy you enjoy my work. See also my website:

  • Super nice work, Ben. Most enjoyable to browse through your images. Composition and details are amazing. One of the better photographers I have run across in a while. Generally, I am not fond of other people's work. Figure if I liked it, I would have photographed it myself over the years and done it the way I wanted. (Probably overly self-centered that way) But I am envious of your photos.

    • By chance, do you know my friend Eric Kellerman?

  • impeccable work

  • Your pictures are wonderful. I like to watch the emotions the pictures spread out. You capture just the right moments and your use of the clear and dark parts of the photos show really a great know how.

  • I love your imagery, I think your use of contrast between the background and model is quite amazing.. Your creativity allows the beauty of the model to proportionately compliment the beauty that is the entirety of the photograph to create a stunning work of art.. thank you for sharing your obvious talent with us... great work..
