Getting started with Ben

July 20, 2020 / Business

As a part of our business assistance series, we will be following the real-life progress of Ben Sheriff. A skilled hobbyist photographer, Ben is currently using a Mavic 2 Pro and Canon 5D Mark III. Ben is an international airline pilot who suddenly finds himself out of work with no pay for an unknown duration due to Covid-19. “Being in a foreign country with no income was a difficult position to be in. I cancelled my apartment lease, packed my belongings into a shipping container and moved back to Australia.”

Ben has been grounded for the foreseeable future and now finds himself living with family on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland wondering what he can do with his aviation skills which have little job opportunities in this current pandemic. “I have always enjoyed my photography, especially with my Mavic and would like to utilise my skills to pick up some freelance work.”

So now begins the journey for Ben navigating setting up a business and trying to enter the freelance photography market in the Sunshine Coast. SkyStock will be working with Ben to help set himself up, and we will check in again in a month to see how he is going.

You can see some of Ben’s work listed on SkyStock and even more on his Instagram.
