Ben Ko has been commissioned to photograph a variety of subjects, from musicians Jon Batiste and Stay Human to international best-selling “Born to Run” author Christopher McDougall to politicians during the 2013 NYC mayoral primary and election eve. 

His photographs have been published by Runner’s World, NY1, and Women’s Running, and he is well-known in the New York City running community for his race photography and portraiture, where his photos are regularly used by his subjects for social media, websites, and advertising. 

Based in New York City for 22 years, he recently re-located to Columbus to be with his dad, and now regularly photographs in both New York and Columbus. 

A partial client list includes Runners World, New York Road Runner,  Strava, Yay Bikes, Sports and Arts Foundation,  Tracewell Systems, and numerous musicians and individuals.
