“I have worked with Ben Davies on three occasions. When I directed a pilot in Bristol, the NFTS-trained DOP dropped out and trusted Ben, the gaffer, with the role of DOP. He stepped up to the plate, and was dynamic and willing to adapt. Ever since, I’ve asked him back on every project I’ve worked on, and we have collaborated twice, despite living in different cities. He can pull creative solutions out of the ether, and is a pleasure to have around - putting the artists (and myself) at ease in challenging situations.”

"Working with Ben  has been a real joy. It was clear from the first discussion we had about the tone of the film that Ben understood what I was trying to do, and he brought plenty of visual ideas to the table to enrich the narrative. He’s a professional, calm and optimistic DP - there was never a point where I felt like we couldn’t achieve what we set out to do. We trusted one another with our ideas and Ben was always open to trying new things on the day because he knew that it would tell the story better. On the whole, Ben and I worked very well together and I’d love to work with him again."
