Recently I was brought on a commercial shoot for Sears new Hankook tires with former all pro receiver Cris Carter. We shot product shots, stills, candids, etc. Cris was super fun to work with and provided us all with plenty of humor.
I was fortunate to be assigned to shoot the cover Feb/Mar 2013 issue of the Atlantic Current Magazine, which will be my third cover in a row with them.
Below are a handful of other images and assignments that were ran in the latest issue including FAU baseball, paddleboarding and an article on local surfer Codi Monroy!
The Pelz family kids got a pro photoshoot with me for Hanukkah. Yeah, thats what they really wanted…lol! Most kids have to be dragged to get just a few photos. These two girls were totally all about it! The boy wasnt as excited but still went along with it! Here are some of the edgy shots we got down at the old train depot in Boca Raton.
One of my assistant photographers asked me to shoot a few photos of him and his family in Boca Raton, Florida. Here are a few from the session.

I was asked to cover 8 guys on a surfing trip of their lives aboard the Indies Trader 3 throughout the Mentawai Islands over the course of 12 days. Adventure is not even the word. Chasing waves with the best boats and technology available….. in the best place in the world is an experience I wanted to share. So I did, everyday on my blog partnership with www.Slavetothewave.com! I had a series of blogs where I wrote and posted photos of everyday and the people, waves and experiences we encountered. You can see them all here www.slavetothewave.com/ben-hicks/
Here are some of my favorite images from the trip.
The Junior Womens League of Boca Raton asked me to setup and shoot onsite photos for their Groovy Gathering. We shot and printed onsite giving an instant memory for all the attendees. Special thanks to my awesome assistant Veronica!
