Ben Moon – Photographer

Sony Artisan Ben Moon’s captivating stills and video have been featured in ads for top adventure and music companies, such as Patagonia and Epic Records, and in leading publications like GQ, the New York Times, and National Geographic. In 2015, he founded his production company, Moonhouse, as a platform for collaboration with friends and creatives to bring a wide range of stories to life on-screen. Surviving colorectal cancer in his 20s inspired Ben to gradually shift his artistic focus from capturing the pursuit of adventure to telling nuanced human stories. Most notably, Ben’s breakout short film in 2015, Denali, received over 17 million views. In 2020, Ben expanded this story into a memoir, which shot to number one in its category in the first week, called Denali: A Man, a Dog, and the Friendship of a Lifetime.
