Biography of Ben Hicks


About the Photographer

South-Florida based photographer Ben Hicks has journeyed across the Americas and ventured to exotic
locales spanning the globe to compose a profoundly diverse collection of fine-art photography that truly
captures the majestic beauty of the natural world.  This self-proclaimed “adventure-boy” not only strives to
portray the familiar in extraordinarily original ways, but also takes big risks to capture the most complex,
often dangerous situations including big waves and precarious animal encounters all to share his admiration
for Mother Nature’s creations.  Whether shooting tropical beachscapes in the South Pacific, vast sandstone
buttes in the American Southwest or the first few open water strides of a leatherback sea turtle hatchling,
Ben’s distinctive vision and inimitable approach to photography renders intricately detailed images that
captivate viewers and serve as a testament to his enjoyment and reverence of nature.

Environmental Mission

Through his photography, Ben aspires to advance the appreciation for nature and raise environmental
awareness by depicting the natural world in an endearing and relevant manner that all individuals can
understand and connect with.  Ben is particularly focused on using his photography as a medium to
communicate the importance of sea turtle conservation as these magnificent creatures are one of the most
important indicators of the health of the world’s marine and coastal ecosystems.  Ben firmly uphold the Sea
Turtle Conservancy’s belief that “whether sea turtles ultimately vanish from the planet or whether they remain
a wild and thriving part of the natural world, will speak volumes about both the general health of the planet
and the ability of humans to sustainably coexist with the diversity of life on Earth.”  Ben strives to serve the
global community by using his art to communicate conservation, environmental activism and sustainability
so that we can improve the environment today and make way for a better, more prosperous future for many
generations to come. . For more on his commercial work visit:
