DON’T HIDE YOURSELF. EMBRACE YOUR WEIRD.
Some things matter more than others.
HEART OVER AESTHETICS
MOOD OVER PERFECTION
CREATIVITY OVER POPULARITY
MEANING OVER BULLSHIT
CREATIVE FULFILLMENT OVER WALLET FULFILLMENT
SOMETHING OVER NOTHING
i’m seriously proud to know you.
i love this post. because you’re right, its not about popularity or money or fame. art never was about those things. you’re an artist pure and true and again, i’m proud to know you and call you friend!
Personalized over commercialized.
Love these shots, and the Short phrases added to each set of pics, really created a great vibe.
Constant Inspiration <3
This sort of stuff you do is my favorite.
LoVe these shots! Well said
Yes and AMen And Hallelujah! Thanks for shouting this mantra loud and clear and reminding us all of these truths! You use your platform so well.
Gosh, Ben! These are beautiful!
Ben. I am absolutely speechless. I have always been such a huge fan of your work, and you have always been such an inspiration, but watching you push every artistic boundary past its limits lately has been nothing short of awe-inspiring. Thank you for sharing not only this beautiful set of artwork but also for stating your firm belief that photography and portraiture doesn’t have to be about what “they” say it does (whoever “they” are haha). I get excited whenever I see a blog post from you and this one just blew me away.
this speaks to me. thank you so much ben <3
this is really quite beautiful. Thank you for your work
This is extraordinary. These photos have such a cinematic, romantic, delicate aura to them, and they make me so proud of you. Heck yeah!!
So Beautiful! <3
tHIS IS SOME OF THE MOST TRY-HARD ARTSY BULLSHIT i’VE EVER SEEN. kEEP SELLING PRESETS AND ONLINE CLASSES TO THE MASSES, YOU’RE BETTER OFF.
lIKE SHOOTING BLURRY / TIGHT IMAGES OF mODELS OF ALL THINGS EQUATES TO SOME SORT OF DEEPER ARTISTIC MEANING, AMATEURS & WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS COULDN’T SEE REAL CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHY IF IT WAS RIGHT IN THEIR FACE.
Ben, these are words that needed to be said, and images you needed to make, and both the words and the images resonate with me. I’ve struggled for years with the fact that my work, the way i do it, the way it makes me happiest, Will never be the trendy thing and may never even be marketable or profiTable. But i can’t see trying to change it either. I’m getting okay with that. Cheers to you for shooting What moves You, don’t stop.
inspired! this is one of my favorite. I may play tomorrow with your idea and see what i create
