August 21, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
I met Nicole Duch at her farm last August where we walked the potato fields and then followed up on a sunny February morning to get some pictures of the potatoes. It took me way too long to put this all together, but here is the interview and pictures. Thanks Nicole! B (Ben): What’s your name? N (Nicole): Nicole Duch. B: What town do you live...

Travel: 42 Hours In Maine

August 20, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
A long summer vacation wasn't in the cards this year, but a quick trip to Maine before the chill of September hits was. Keeping things simple we headed to the Portland area (that we know and enjoy) and were treated with beautiful weather and light. The first evening we visited what I read was "the most photographed lighthouse in the world", Portlan...

Travel: Arizona

April 25, 2015  •  1 Comment
With Spring taking its time to develop in Vermont a vacation to Arizona was a welcome change. This was a fun family vacation where relaxing and having a great time was the first priority, but I of course had plenty of opportunity to take pictures too and the natural wonders did not disappoint. Here are some images from Montazuma's Castle, Sedona, S...

Year In Review: People

December 31, 2014  •  Leave a Comment
To my surprise, I am above all a people photographer. This year I took pictures of people in many different settings including weddings, news & magazine assignments, commercial jobs (I'm not ready to share many of these, but they will work in to my portfolios in the new year), on the street, and in people's homes and neighborhoods. Here are some fr...

2014 In Review: Weddings

December 30, 2014  •  Leave a Comment
I shot four weddings as the primary (one co-primary) shooter and second shooter for a couple more this year. I wouldn't call myself a wedding photographer, but rather a photographer who shoots weddings - but each year I seem to do a few more and I actually enjoy it quite a bit. There is some pressure when you are photographing a one-time event and...

2014 In Review: On Assignment

December 27, 2014  •  Leave a Comment
A couple dozen newspaper and magazine assignments this year. This kind of work is usually pretty interesting and challenging because you get assigned to do a wide variety of things - like portraits, news worthy events, sports, etc. and then you have to try to tell the story in just a few images - plus get names and important information while you'r...

2014 In Review: Street

December 23, 2014  •  Leave a Comment
I'm putting a few year in review blog posts together - starting with Street Photography. There aren't many opportunities to do street photography in Vermont, but whenever I have some time in an urban setting I love to get out and try my hand at it. I mostly "shoot from the hip" and I think that usually the subject is unaware that I have taken their...
