Welcome to The Amazing Picture Factory.
Based in central Victoria, the Amazing Picture Factory has been running since 1982 and is a photographic specialist.
Not only do we shoot photos of events, weddings, portraits, news, sports and almost anything you need, but we are also video specialists in conjunction with ITC Productions we offer a full digital image and video service anywhere you need.
Travelling literally anywhere required,.. even world wide.
Ben Longden, the principal photographer of The Amazing Picture Factory was given his first camera when he was six, and he developed his first film aged nine.
He went to TAFE to further his skills, but on the first day was appointed  darkroom teacher.
In 2001 he went  to La Trobe University at Bendigo, but was told he should be applying for a teaching position – alas, none were available.
Turning professional in 1982, Ben has shot news pictures for a number of newspapers such as The Parkes Champion Post and  Sydney’s Daily Telegraph for nine years, The Sydney Morning Herald, Maquarie Publications and Western Newspapers.  For several years he mentored journalists throughout the central west of NSW.
In 1994 he moved to Echuca, Victoria and worked as chief photographer at the Riverine Herald for eight years before branching out and shooting  television news for the Nine and WIN Networks.
Now it’s your turn to take advantage of his photographic experience.
