Meet Ben: I am a follower of Jesus, and I love a good old fashioned rainy day.
Telling stories through photographs is my biggest passion. I am a huge photo-geek, and I love every aspect of photography. If I’m being honest, I’m actually just a geek on everything that interests me.
So how did I get into photography? When I was younger, I loved all of the landscape photos that you find as background options on your computer. The beautiful mountain vistas, serene rivers, and the intricate details found in the world mesmerized me. Having so many favorite images, I would change my computer wallpaper daily. I was constantly in search of that new perfect image to use as my background to evoke inspiration. Eventually I picked up my Dad’s old 35mm film camera (which I still love using) and started taking photos of Northern Michigan’s beautiful people and places. This passion has led me as close as my back yard, and as far as Washington and Arizona. I love seeking out new stories to tell.
Over the past few years, I’ve developed a serious interest in coffee, too. I also love playing the drums, and can’t say no to a good sci-fi movie!
