Greetings!  My name is Ben and I’m a photo-retoucher, CGI illustrator, art director and designer.  I'm passionate about collaborating with other talented creatives, bringing out the best in their work.  With a wide range of clients, I’ve worked on every kind of project, both digital and print, from web banners to billboards.  After 15+ years of agency work I’m now providing my expertise on a freelance basis for clients in New York, Philadelphia and beyond.  

I offer top notch photo-retouching, compositing, photo-illustration and color correcting work with Photoshop.  As well as CGI illustration using Pictureshooter, Maya and Arnold; creative development, art direction, and graphic design; project management, print production, and pre-press.  Take a look at my portfolio and get in touch.  Thank you.



More about me:

Born and raised in West Philadelphia and its close western burbs, I trained as a teenager in textbook illustration, and used those skills after college as an illustrator and designer, eventually developing a career photo-retouching in New York City. I now reside back in my old West Philly neighborhood with my fabulous family and too many pets.  

When I'm not in front of a computer I enjoy a good bike ride, tasty food & wine, and summers away at a cottage in Maine. And, when time allows, painting outdoors with all the devices shut off.




Advertising is always a team effort.  All the pieces I've worked on were created in collaboration with creative, production and account team members. In particular, credit is due the very dedicated and talented team at AdvertisingArts. Thanks to all who have contributed.
