So, who actually is Ben Green?

Well, the easy response would be, it's me! But lets dive a bit deeper. I'm a 17 year old, Creative Digital Media student. I've been involved in the media for the past 5 years, starting off in secondary school by helping to photograph sporting and award events and then later on producing 2 award ceremonies including motion graphics and creating a plethora of digital products.

I am a photographer, cinematographer and website developer and also have 8 years of experience in technical support. I have 5 years experience and 2 diploma qualifications in media.

I provide services for a wide range of digital projects — primarily focusing on website development and design with a key eye for search engine optimisation and speed (have you seen how quickly this website loads!?). Alongside website products, having a background in IT I can setup a professional business with cloud storage, email and more. Having been a hobbiest photographer for the past 4 years, I also know my way around a camera, providing professional, detailed shots of products, people and events.

What I'm Doing Now

As of writing this, it's the 21st November 2020. The UK is back in lockdown due to COVID-19. I'm still going to college to finish my Level 3 Media Extended Diploma. My units right now consist of me making a short film, a television show and learning how to create a media freelancing business. On the side of college, I'm working on developing myself as a digital consultant, thinking about how to market myself, learning how to create content (to do this, I've started writing a blog) and expanding my skills in general as a media student.

I'm still working as a freelancer with a YouTube content creator, putting out videos twice a week. I'm helping Bistro My Way get through the pandemic by updating their website to best suit the current situations - most recently creating a dedicated COVID-19 page and updating their takeaway menus.
