Ben states, "I am not one who photographs one type of subject matter, due to my roots being a freelance photographer.  The varied subject matter I do shoot I review and contemplate how can I make it my own personal statement.   I do that by manipulation, composites, texturizing, and distortion.  A photography of a beautiful sunset, flower, or animal is great but I didn't create it, I captured it at that moment and time.   Through my process I make it my own.  It is my statement my creation."
