Photographer + Podcaster
Ben has always believed photographs can transport you to another time and place. He first started taking pictures to document where he's been and now he takes pictures to make sense of where he's at. Ben uses the camera for both of those reasons equally, whether shooting for a magazine, a design firm, an architect, or for himself. His persistence, focus and hard work all allow him to travel, be creative and collaborate with some of the most innovative minds.
