About 7Chairs

7CHAIRS is the creative brainchild of Sydney based commercial photographer Ben Halcomb.

The name 7CHAIRS derives from the fact that in the family there are 5 kids and 2 adults, so in the early days we needed 7Chairs to go anywhere. The kids may be older now but Sunday family dinners still mean a full house.

7CHAIRS was founded in its current form back in 2012, and the primary focus of 7CHAIRS is photographing people in all sorts of scenarios, from weddings, portraits and commercial environments, something we really enjoy is working with different people in different situations.

7CHAIRS is based in western Sydney in Australia but travel all over the world to service clients, we have shot weddings and commercial work in places throughout the USA and parts of the Asia Pacific.

Some of 7CHAIRS regular clients include Sydney Markets, Arnott’s Australia, Rooty Hill RSL, Sennheiser Australia/NZ, Clarendon Homes, Morningstar Investments, Iris Capital and many more.

Both Ben and Andrew have been in the photographic industry all their careers, having both worked for major photographic suppliers, both of them also are up on all the latest technology and trends.
