SOMETIMES THINGS DON’T TURN OUT THE WAY YOU THOUGHT THEY WOULD. SOMETIMES, WHEN LIVING THROUGH EXPERIENCES IN YOUR YOUNGER YEARS THAT LEAVE YOU WITH INSECURITY AND A LACK OF SELF ESTEEM, YOU LIFT YOURSELF UP AND FIND THE COURAGE AND STRENGTH TO PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE IN THE SPOTLIGHT. SOMETIMES WHEN LEAVING THE PROTECTED ENVIRONMENT OF A SECURE JOB, CAN PUT YOU ON A PATH TO NEW ADVENTURES IN YOUR PROFESSIONAL LIFE. BRINGING YOU TO PLACES YOU NEVER THOUGHT YOU WOULD GO.
Ben Ginders was born in Stoke-on-Trent 23 years ago. Did you hear that well? Yes you did. Stoke-on-Trent is a city located in Staffordshire in the west midlands of England. The city is polycentric, meaning is was formed by a federation of 6 originally separate towns and numerous villages. Stoke-on-Trent is mostly known being the pottery center in England but we believe that is going to come to an end pretty soon. Not that The Potteries will locate elsewhere. But more due to the fact Ben Ginders is going to be a name in modeling and by doing so will put Stoke-on-Trent on the international map of the model industry.
So who is this Ben Ginders. Aged 23 as stated before, he is an easy going, positive and friendly person who likes to make the most of life from going out with friends to posing and showing off for the camera for people to enjoy. Mmmmm…seems like a guy who likes to take the easy way out. Well, not exactly. Because much as he likes to enjoy life, it seems obvious Ben is also very serious when it comes to his assignments and taking care of his physical condition which is, as we all know, work. Hard work. No one looks as stunning and well built as Ben does without a disciplined workout routine. Ben spends 2 hours at his local gym, 4 days a week, doing a number of workouts and cardiovascular endurance to enhance his body to its best. Hard work indeed, but he loves doing it. Like he loves doing everything else in his life. With right a guy with a positive mind set.
Ben Ginders never thought he would become a model. He entered a competition for a local ladies gym that was due to open in his area. He never expected it would go anywhere but the organization showed interest in him and called him back for a photo shoot. Much to his own shock since Ben always had a very low opinion about himself after always being put down in his younger years. Now, having worked hard and with the support of those who believe in him Ben is on his way to make it big. And it looks like Philip Crichton is helping him in the right direction.
Philip Crichton always had an interest in photography, but only built his career in this genre 10 years ago. Before embarking on this journey, Philip’s career involved him in film and television. Somehow his activities as costume designer brought forth an opportunity to work in education, primarily with performing arts students. And, having both photographic and teaching qualifications, when a opening came in the photography department of the college where he now worked, Philip took it with both hands, and turned his life around. Besides teaching photography, Philip Crichton also shoots himself and focuses mainly on the male form. Privileged to have worked with fine models and always looking for fresh talent, Philip stumbled upon Ben Ginders and found him available to pose for him, both inside and outside the studio, and proving that when we say Ben Ginders is big, we pretty much mean it in every sense of the word. Yes, Ben Ginders has everything needed to make it. –BM-
