O'Hanley » Children's Photographer London


ChildrenI’m Ben – partner to a lovely lady and father of two of the world’s most beautiful girls (OK, so I’m a little bit biased!).

I developed my art of framing the perfect image working in TV for channels including MTV and CBeebies for two decades. And these days, I’m living my dream, working as a professional portrait photographer. I count Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander and Robert Frank among my inspirations.

When I’m not taking pictures, I love spending time with my girls, dabbling in a bit of cooking and occasionally indulging in a glass of quality wine.


Some happy campers…


The kids could be grubby, naughty, poorly or grumpy and O’Hanley will still capture the best of them. If you have kids and want amazing photos of them then what are you waiting for?!
