Photographer

Hi. My name is Ben and I'm a photographer based in Portland, Oregon. In another life I was a lawyer, in my best life I'm photographing every day. I shoot a wide range of subjects and topics, but focus my style on natural light, clean composition, and unique perspective. I've had a winding path, if you're interested in knowing more have a read here.  Or say hello here.
