Benjamin Benschneider Photography, Seattle
Ben had a very early introduction to art and photography, and was always
supported in his interests. His father was a commercial photographer and
teacher, his mother a painter and sculptor. Ben grew up in Colorado, in
remarkable natural surroundings, and frequent hikes led him to a genuine
appreciation of the interplay between light and landscape. He was aware
that he wanted to develop his craft in order to portray that interplay
in his photographic images.
Ben’s extensive career as a photojournalist with The Seattle Times has
given him the opportunity to travel throughout the United States, Asia,
and Europe on assignment. He melded his sense of composition, acute
technical skill, and artistic expression to create photographic essays
on a wide variety of subjects. Through Ben’s passion for design and his
expertise in architectural photography, Ben conveys architecture’s best
to a wide audience of professional and public observers. His work is
regularly showcased in many architectural books and magazines and is represented by OTTO Archive.
