About Me

“An image is portal to a specific time in space.”

— Benhur Ayettey



Benhur Ayettey is an editorial and commercial photographer, based in Columbus, Ohio. Benhur was born in Accra, Ghana. At the age of 16 he moved to the United States to stay with his father.

His interest for photography developed whilst traveling to Puerto Rico for vacation in 2015. After taking pictures of the tourist sites in Puerto Rico, Benhur decided to take pictures of people since it seemed more interesting and engaging. Since then, Benhur has been taking beautiful portraits in both natural and studio light settings.


My work focuses on capturing a moment in time, whether it's portraiture, lifestyle imagery, or just the perfect light.

Always experimenting with new techniques, I'm equally comfortable with analog and digital technologies, and use both according to the needs of the project.
