BEN JACKS is a Brooklyn based Director and Cinematographer. He started shooting 35mm at a young age and hasn’t stopped.
Be it shooting commercials for Nike, or branded action films for Rogue Menswear, Ben brings a cinematic energy and elegance to his work. His work encompasses lifestyle, branded micro-documentary, and fashion.

His short ‘The Road of Life’ was a top finalist in the Shot On Red Film Festival, and his Cinematography work has won multiple accolades around the world.
