My name is Ben Rust, and I have been taking photos seriously for a quite a few years now. During this time, I have completed various photography courses run by both universities and independent photographers. It is important to me that I keep up to speed with new trends, and I enjoy learning new techniques to enhance the photos I take.
I enjoy all aspects of photography. I love the landscapes of Gloucestershire, where I grew up, but wedding and portrait photography is where my heart is. I get great satisfaction capturing couples special memories. Since a very small age, many different people have told me I take a relaxed approach in life. Now grown up, I still take that relaxed approach, and I feel this benefits me greatly whilst taking photos.
Outside of photography, I enjoy all outside sports and activites. I was a very keen rugby player growing up and if I wasnt at work or school I was on the rugby pitch! Due to injuries, I've had to hang the boots up. Since meeting my wife, I started playing golf, which is her family's obsession, and it has now caught on and I'm a keen golfer. Another love of mine is climbing: indoor or out, I love the challenging routes, the buzz and the views at height!
