Photo & video

My name is Ben Horsley. I am a Creative Director from the UK working with a rich variety of clients from mature startups to enterprise brands in media, tech, travel, retail, and finance.

For over 10 years I have produced campaigns and directed projects for global clients including Estèe Lauder, BBC, Emirates, Cathay Pacific, Vodafone, Sky, DHL, American Express, Starbucks, ITV, Sainsbury’s, Taylor Herring, Lloyds, Arcadia Group, and many more.

Leading busy, award-winning (and award-losing) studios of likeminded creative professionals, I strive to produce first-class work across disruptive and traditional channels. As a leader, I build, motivate, and inspire brilliant teams to produce unique, head-turning work.

Projects

That’s right, I count every single one. From my very first freelance job (a photoshoot with a goth band in a wet Farnborough underpass) to my most recent (flying to Bonn, Germany to roll out DHL’s global Great Place to Work campaign).

Like tears in rain

I’ve worked client-side, agency-side, integrated, and freelance. I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe.

To fly, to serve

British Airways said that, but I can say it too. My job has taken me from LA to Hong Kong and many places in between.

Power to the people

As much a I love being at the coalface, much of my work involves leading brilliant teams and individuals.

Little black book

Actually, it’s grey, and not so little. Over the years I’ve built a brilliant contact list of need-to-know creative specialists.
