Ben McKechnie

I am a professional photographer specializing in travel, documentary, and portrait work, as well as a working freelance writer and editor with more than 10 years experience.

Both as a photographer and journalist, my interests lie in people and the relationship they have with their culture. I am often moved deeply when witnessing the ebb and flow of daily life around the world and strive to create works that capture this.

I am a graduate of MatadorU's Advanced Travel Photography course, and am currently to be found editing, photographing, documenting the culture of, and eating my way around Taiwan.

However you came here, I'm glad you found me. Reach out with a message about anything and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
