Meet the maker: Ben Blyth 74 Productions


Ben is 21 and studied photojournalism at the University of South Wales (USW), after graduating he co-started a business called 74 Productions and is now a member of The Sustainable Studio.

“At 14 I was bought my first camera for Christmas and taught myself how to use it. I became official photographer with Notts County FC, travelled with the team and loved it.

Doing the USW photojournalism course felt like a big step forward and I realised photography could become a career. Also, it felt great to prove teachers wrong who said my attitude was wrong for university.

Being taught to tell stories through images rather than just taking photos was awesome, it gave me loads of opportunity to play with the camera and meet cool people.
