Author Notes

Ben Moon is an adventure and lifestyle photographer turned director and filmmaker who uses his intuitive sensibilities to bring individuals and their stories to life: from climbing and surfing images, to music videos, to behind-the-scenes moments and narratives. For more than seventeen years his work has been featured in the esteemed Patagonia catalogs, where he seeks to capture the beauty and authenticity of people challenging themselves everywhere, from the sheer rock walls of Yosemite to fifty-foot waves in the Pacific Northwest.
Because Ben is also a rock climber, surfer, and adventurer, his insights into the subjects he photographs are tangible. He takes this ability to connect with others a step further in his ongoing black-and-white portrait project called Faces, in which each individual&;s inner beauty is revealed in a disarming and intimate manner.
Founded in 2014, his production company, Moonhouse, is a platform for collaborating with friends and other creatives who similarly want to bring thoughtful stories to life on-screen. The 2015 short film Denali, told Ben&;s own deeply personal story about his battle with colorectal cancer and his relationship with his beloved dog Denali, who passed away from cancer a decade after Ben recovered from the. The film continues to touch new audiences online and at film festivals worldwide. Another short, Grizzly Country, documents the ecowarrior and grizzly bear activist Doug Peacock. Ben&;s most recent short films include Offseason, which features his close friend Daniel Norris, an ace lefty pitcher for the Detroit Tigers, who lives in his van in the off-season and who hopes to inspire others to slow down and live more simply.
Ben now lives in Pacific City, Oregon, where he explores the nearby dunes of Cape Kiwanda and shores of the Pacific Ocean with his pup, Nori, who has strikingly similar facial markings to Denali, and shares many of his finer personality traits.
