Ben Krantz has photographed people all over the globe. He started in 2000, photographing actors and comedians in Los Angeles who needed headshots to get their careers going. He was a manager and trainer for a national photography retailer for 7 years. And after spending years as an aspiring comedian and cinematographer, Ben decided to pursue his career as a photographer. In 2007, Ben joined Reflections Photography in Pleasant Hill. In 2008, he opened ben krantz STUDIO in Oakland’s historic Jack London Warehouse District, where he has become one of the most sought after headshot photographers in the Bay Area.
Over the years Ben has accrued more than just his photographic experience. He has also produced numerous film and theatrical productions, many right here in the Bay Area. Having spent time on the other side of the casting table, he has learned what directors, producers, and casting directors look for and are drawn to in a headshot. All of this leads to Ben’s passion and talent for photographing actors and corporate professionals. He knows not only how to bring out the best in them, but how to make sure their strengths, personality and best possible looks come shining through.
