A Little about Ben Halcomb;

7CHAIRS is the creative brainchild of Sydney based commercial photographer Ben Halcomb.

The name 7CHAIRS derives from the fact that in the family there are 5 kids and 2 adults, so in the early days we needed 7Chairs to go anywhere. The kids may be older now but Sunday family dinners still mean a full house.

7CHAIRS was founded in its current form back in 2012, and the primary focus of 7CHAIRS is photographing people in all sorts of scenarios, from weddings, portraits and commercial environments, something we really enjoy is working with different people in different situations.

7CHAIRS is based in western Sydney in Australia but travel all over the world to service clients, we have shot weddings and commercial work in places throughout the USA and parts of the Asia Pacific.

Some of 7CHAIRS regular clients include Sydney Markets, Arnott’s Australia, Sennheiser Australia/NZ, Clarendon Homes, Morningstar Investments, Greenstone Financial, WentWest Health, Australia National Construction Review, Lion, Penrith City Council, Penrith Valley Chamber, Iris Capital and many more.

With nearly 30 years experience, Ben is a multi-award-winning photographer who has been playing with all sorts of cameras ever since leaving school back in 1989.

Having shot over 600 weddings in his career , it is fair to say that Ben loves helping couples to capture their special day in a way that brings their individual spirit – and love – to life.

For the past 30 years, Ben has been shooting as well as weddings all sorts of corporate events and functions, over the years, there is not much that he has not photographed.
