Ben is an avid adventurer, conservationist, and wilderness photographer who enjoys exploring remote corners of our planet. Among his favorite subjects are desolate arctic landscapes and the wildlife that inhabits them. He regularly ventures above the Arctic Circle in winter, recently enduring temperatures of -65 F in search of an exceptional aurora. Last summer he spent two weeks aboard a Russian icebreaker, photographing northern Greenland and several smaller islands surrounding the North Pole. In more hospitable climates, Ben often backpacks many miles into the wilderness to discover scenery unvisited by others.

Most of Ben’s photographs have been captured with a Hasselblad medium format digital camera — currently 60 megapixels — yielding prints with exceptional detail and color. His images are broadly licensed and exhibited, and have been published worldwide, including recently in Outdoor Photographer, Popular Photography and Hasselblad’s Victor magazine.
