Benjamin is a self-taught digital photographer living in Brunswick, Maine with his wife and two dogs.
A lifelong love of history and the weather have conspired in images that feature the unique culture and beauty of Maine in stunning light and unusual conditions.
The goal of many of his images is not to simply paint a pretty picture for the viewer, but to highlight shared values and impart a sense of wonder at mankind’s creations, alongside the wonder so easily attributed to nature.
A regular contributor to Down East Magazine, Ben’s images have appeared in books, calendars, on television and in newspapers, brochures, websites, and annual reports.
He took second place in the prestigious Maine Photography Show, color category, for his image ‘Wharf Street Puddle’.
He has also begun teaching his craft to others with private lessons and workshops. When he’s not behind a camera, you can sometimes find him pouring microbrews behind the bar at the Sea Dog in Topsham.
