Hi, I'm Benedict

Benedict Stenning

Starting in the film industry at the age of 17 as a runner, followed by roles as an Assistant Director on major productions for around a decade, provided me with valuable knowledge working within a film crew and on-set etiquette.
Passionate about cinema, photography and storytelling, there’s now nothing I enjoy more than merging these loves by capturing film stills for productions of various scales.
Building relationships and rapport with the crew and cast is something I cherish, as it allows me to capture the essence of the incredible characters they embody in still images. Additionally, I find great joy in shooting beautiful behind-the-scenes moments that capture the magic of moviemaking.

Highlights from Benedict

* Back when I was a young runner working on a Jim Henson production with Matthew Modine, I went and knocked on Matthews trailer door to ask if he’s had breakfast yet and he said “No man, have YOU had breakfast?” I replied that I hadn’t so he invited me in and made me the most delicious pancakes with maple syrup while we talked politics, movies and his time working on Full Metal Jacket with Kubrick. A beautiful moment I’ll never forget.

* At the BFI IMAX premier for Chasing Cotards for which I’d shot stills, Andrew Scott came up and gave me a huge hug whilst I was holding a glass of Champagne. It caught me so off guard and balance that I ended up tipping the contents down the back of his beautiful pink blazer. Thankfully he was super cool about it!

* Every shoot I’ve ever been on is a highlight to be honest.
