Ben Fink

INFO

Ben Fink is the photographer/Commercial Director of choice for some of the most popular food professionals of our day. Bobby Flay, Rose Levy Beranbaum, Paula Deen, the Deen Brothers, the Neelys, Anne Burrell, Guy Fieri, Jacques Pepin, Carol Alt, Rick Rodgers, Michael Symon, Ina Garten, Rachael Ray, and Sandra Lee have all entrusted Ben with their food and lifestyle photography for their many cookbooks.

Ben is also effortlessly comfortable with celebrities who were media stars before they were cookbook authors, including Eva Longoria, Trisha Yearwood, Ted Allen, and Teresa Giudice. He is virtually the in-house photographer for the Culinary Institute of America, and has provided the visuals for over a dozen of their beautifully photographed and intricate books.

His corporate client list is equally impressive, including Hellman’s Mayonnaise, Eggo Waffles, American Express, Tate’s Cookies, Viving, and Kohls, and many others. Ben’s photography has graced many New York Times bestsellers, IACP, and James Beard Award winners.
