chicago reader, agenda magazine

I was contacted by the Agenda Magazine to do a portrait shoot of music composer and teacher Anthony Cheung for both Agenda as well as the Chicago Reader. This was my first time shooting portraits with the intention of having the images appear in two magazines. It was also my first job for both publications.…

harvard colloquy magazine

Photography is a balance of exploration and trusting your gut. I try to keep the amount of people on set small. When possible, it’s my subject, assistant and myself. The more photo gear and people involved can make anyone in front of the camera timid. I shot the majority of these with one light and a reflector. “Don’t…

burning man 2016

have returned from the dusty city of Burning Man. This year has been the most colorful, sleepless, powerful, adventurous, saddening, heart-opening, loud, weird and beautiful week yet. After three years, I think I have finally found how to apply what I’ve learned at BRC to the default world, yet still trying to process the whole…

Recent portrait of mine in the Improper Bostonian! On-location in the Market Stalls at the Boston Design Center.

shooting on-location in brookline, ma

I was shooting a beautiful home in Brookline today. Thought I would share a snap from the fun!

galapagos

For Christmas and New Year’s, I traveled to Ecuador to visit the Galapagos Islands. It was Act I of my three part trip in South America. I snorkeled with turtles and sea lions, visited lava caves, ate fish caught an hour before, met amazing travelers and had endless synchronicities. The main purpose of my trip…

idyllwild, ca

I recently returned from a few weeks of traveling around the country. I visited Savannah to run a marathon, Florida to visit some family and ventured all over California. Here are some photographs from a cabin adventure in Idyllwild, CA.

cambridge residence for mandarina studio

I’ve had the pleasure to grow my career alongside talented interior designer Amanda Reid of Mandarina Studio. One of my first photography jobs while still a student at New England School of Photography was shooting a home for Amanda. She’s great to work with, makes styling look easy (it’s not easy) and has a great sense…

this anthro life podcast episodes

The past weekend’s successful annual bike ride to Provincetown is the prologue to my upcoming August adventure. Tomorrow, I’m journeying out to the Pacific Northwest for the first time. Biking from Seattle to Portland, hiking and camping in Oregon and Idaho, then finishing things off with Burning Man 2015​. I figured it would only seem…

hgtv magazine

This month I was featured twice in HGTV Magazine! So cool! The first was a full-page feature of a bedroom I shot for Annsley Interiors in Nantucket. The second was a beautiful bathroom I shot for Mandarina Studio in Boston. I feel so fortunate to get access to some of the most amazing homes!

id boston magazine

I had some recent work of mine featured in the latest issue of ID Boston magazine. Have a look! The Boston Design Center had me follow around high school students for their Job Shadow Day. The students were picked because of their interest in becoming interior designers and were given a first hand experience on what it’s…

magic, interiors & new england home

I was featured throughout a recent issue of New England Home and the last issue of Harvard’s Colloquy. I sat in on two classes at Harvard. One was a book making class at the Widener Library and the other was a class called “Con Men, Neuroscience and Magic: How the World of Illusion Can Inform Our Understanding…

id boston

I have been working with the Boston Design Center since Jamestown has acquired the building in 2013. It’s gained a lot of creative growth since I’ve had the privilege to work with the amazing people there. Since our partnership, I have shot everything from portraits, architecture, still-life and events for them. In addition, I get…

one mission

I teamed up with Full Contact Advertising to shoot stills for a video piece for the cancer foundation One Mission, who raise money for child cancer research. We shot on-location at a salon in Sudbury, MA. It was a very fun, emotional, challenging and fulfilling day. The point of this shoot was to photograph each person,…

fall issue of colloquy

I have had the fortunate experience to work with Harvard University for nearly five years. I shoot for a lot of schools in the Boston area, but Harvard has given me the opportunity to meet with some of the most forward thinking minds in the world. Over the course of a month, I photographed nine people…

dig boston winter cover

I was featured on the cover of the latest Dig Boston issue! Shot on-location at Ski Monster in downtown Boston.

alex pentland for deloitte review

I was recently published in Deloitte Review for portraits I took of the most cited computer scientist in the world. Alex Pentland is also an entrepreneur, teacher and the director of MIT’s Dynamics Lab. I was only allowed twenty minutes to work with him in between talks he was giving at the MIT Media Lab. That is never…

burning man

This Summer was arguably the best one I’ve ever had. The months leading up to my 30th year as a human being on this planet were filled with humor, pain, uncertainty, growth, adventure, community, truth, and pushing my mind and body beyond limits. I’ve seen a truer reflection of myself in this corner of 2014 than at…

weekly dig july 4th bbq issue

I made another cover of  Dig Boston! It was such a fun shoot, like every other job I shot for the Dig. Great crew to work with, perfectly sunny day, chilling by the pool, beer and plenty of Bar-B-Que. It’s tough calling what I do work some days, but makes the many hours staring at…

2014 boston calling

I had the pleasure to photograph the May 2014 Boston Calling music festival for the Weekly Dig. The three days flew buy and had plenty of good acts. Favorites were Kurt Vile and Jenny Lewis. Have a look at some of the photos below!

brown/fenollosa architects

I had the pleasure to with Brown/Fenollosa Architects. They’re based in Arlington, MA and had me photograph a couple of commercial projects they recently finished. The first location was Bigelow Daycare, located in Somerville. With it’s bright windows and colorful, spacious interior, it was a lot of fun to take pictures in. It’s not often…

inside out magazine, houzz

I was recently contacted by Indian magazine Inside Out that wanted to do a feature on a series of Nantucket homes that I photographed for Annsley McAleer of Annsley Interiors. There are three projects featured. The first was an Inn called The Gate House that took about two days to complete. There are also two residential…

recent publications, podcast

What a better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day and Honest Abe’s birth than with an oyster knife through the heart? Our lovely models Adam and Erica helped bring this semi-ridiculous idea to reality. No, I guess it’s a fully ridiculous idea. It was another fun shoot with the best weekly Boston publication. Good ol’ Abe who’s getting…

life in the yard, colloquy magazine

I was recently published in three different magazines over the past month: Colloquy, Architecture Boston and Spirit Boston. This post is about the shoot I did for Harvard’s latest Colloquy issue. The feature story is titled “Life in The Yard”. It was a different project than what I’m used to shooting for the magazine. The…

david koechner, dig boston

I had the pleasure to work with comedian and actor David Koechner for Dig Boston. The guy is smart, hilarious and half a madman. If you don’t know him, he was Champ Kind from the Anchorman films. Being somewhat of a comedy nerd, I was so pumped to be able to work with the talented…

china

I recently returned from a trip to Guangzhou, China. I was there for two weeks doing commissioned work shooting portraits, but also used the time there to work on my travel portfolio and street photography. I plan on doing a few other major blog posts about this amazing trip, but until then, please have a…

boston globe magazine, nantucket

I recently had some residential interior work featured in Boston Globe Magazine in the Style Watch section. The kitchen was the main focus as well we the backyard patio. Below are the other shots I’ve done for PEG Properties, who did the building and interior design work. Marni Elyse Katz wrote the article, give it a read…

colloquy, summer ’13

One of the biggest and most fun projects I’ve worked on for Harvard was shooting portraits of the Harvard Horizons PhD student scholars. I needed to shoot dynamic environmental portraits of eight selected students, all of whom worked in varying fields. Below are the tear sheets and selected portraits of each scholar. I was fortunate…

august boston dig spread

I had some work of mine featured in the Dig This section of Dig Boston. This was initially shot when I was working on my portfolio on a cross country road trip in June of 2011. We stopped in Southeastern California, somewhere in the Mojave, and I waved this fellow down while he was making…

july 4th in acadia

Over the July 4th weekend I went to Acadia, ME for some rock climbing, biking, hiking and camping with friends. I’ve found relocating to the wilderness and breaking routine is the easiest way to reset the brain. Instead of e-mails, editing pictures, client meetings and preparing for photo shoots, I let the outdoors reignite my…

architectural digest, real simple

I recently had some of my work shown on Architectural Digest’s website. I photographed a bathroom for Emily Pinney in Sudbury, MA. She submitted the project to the magazine for a renovation contest held throughout the U.S. We didn’t end up winning, but it’s still great to be able to get my photography shown next…

june boston dig spread

I had a featured spread in Dig Boston’s June for their Summer Issue. Such a joy to have work shown in the last free Newspaper in Boston. The shot was taken at Castle Island with a friendly local storyteller/wise-man.

boston globe

Some photos of mine for Sweet Cupcakes in today’s edition of the Boston Globe. What a pleasant surprise.

new england home

This month my photography was featured throughout New England Home Magazine. My work with Mandarina Studio appeared in the Metropolitan Life section of the May/June issue. It was a fun experience taking photos for interior designer Amanda Reid in this Cambridge home. I have had the pleasure of working with her for multiple projects over the…

evelyn & angel’s, childhood memories

A new candy store opened up in Cambridge. Mandarina Studio did the sleek, refined interior design work and the packaging design for everything in the store was created by Ferraro Studios. It was really a perfect team that Yalonda put together to help sculpt her company’s image. Yalonda is a lawyer by trade, but decided…

jason stevens shoot, new book release

It’s very exciting working with a company from the ground up. Jason Stevens is the founder and owner of TribalTLC, (Tribal) Knowledge, (T)each, (L)earn and (C)ollaborate. It’s a peer learning group geared towards acquiring survival skills for business, technology and design. Some topics are web design, SEO and running your business. He brought me in…

colloquy magazine, fall ’12

I had the pleasure to work with some inspiring people in the latest issue of Colloquy magazine. Scott Lee has done fascinating things since his 2003 graduation, mostly focusing on South African and Indian community health, although he does place interest in US healthcare. His work centers around engaging communities to operate more safely and…

sandoval ranch & vineyard

When I was in California, I made the trek up to Santa Barbara. I shot portraits of Dan and Arielle, a musical duo based in LA. You can see pictures from that shoot in my last post. I also documented what goes into making such delicious wine at Sandoval Vineyard. I now have a new…

Dan & Arielle in California

The end of October through mid-November has had me on the road nonstop. After traveling throughout New England, I spent a few weeks away on various portrait shoots in Los Angeles, Brooklyn and Florida back to back to back. Once I arrived home, I had 6 straight days of shooting, only to be followed by…

Colloquy Magazine, Summer 2012, HGTV Magazine

I was recently published in the Summer edition of Colloquy Magazine. I photographed three students all working on a documentary film with a similar theme, the theme being industrial decline. Fascinating topic and something I think anyone with a camera is naturally drawn to. Both still and video, cameras are created to tangetize(real word?) a…

Ivy & Piper Magazine

I was just recently published in Ivy & Piper, an Australian Interior Design magazine. I shot this home for Annsley Interiors when she completed the project recently. This is the first time my residential interior photography made a cover and I couldn’t be more pleased. It was a light and airy summer home where you wanted…

Glovebox Guest Blog, New Shoot Preview

I recently wrote a guest blog post for Glovebox. It’s about Design Museum Boston and their newest exhibit called “Getting There” in South Boston. It’s about, well no, just read it. I’m just here to relay the message. Check out the rest of their website, it’s a great resource for artists. In the meantime, take…

Colloquy Magazine April ’12

In April I shot my first assignment for Colloquy. It’s the alumni magazine for Harvard’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. I shoot people, I shoot places, I love shooting people in places. The location itself is a subject, but people respond strongest when another human being is present in the photo. Photography creates tangible…

Lisa Moise Album Artwork

This week singer Lisa Moise launched her new album Boite De Chocolat. The album photography was a collaborative effort between my friend and all-around good guy Michael Connors and myself. We shot all of the photos for the album in Lynn, MA in January of this year. It was a fun, successful shoot and Lisa…

Lifestyle Photo Shoot With Miss New Jersey USA 2012

At heart, I am a minimalist. I frequently toss away things I own if I haven’t touched them in a year or longer. Too much clutter in life, as well as in the brain, is a burden a lot of people carry unknowingly. It’s important to take an honest inventory of your belongings, your gear,…

An Inviting Cambridge Residence

This Cambridge home looked modest from the outside, but inside popped with a vibrant life. This house had beautiful wooden floors, both upstairs and down, which added a comfortable feel and helped accentuate some of it’s more modern delights. The colorful artwork in every room and hallway gave the space flavor and the white walls…

Nikon D800

For anyone that hasn’t heard, there is a new breed of camera coming out and it’s called the Nikon D800. It has a full-frame FX-format sensor with 36.3 megapixels and a 7360 x 4912 resolution, which is more than twice the pixel density of the newly unveiled D4. The back screen is a 3.2″, 921,000-dot LCD monitor.…

BSA Space IN FORM

On February 9th, I was able to visit the new location of Boston Society of Architects on Congress Street in downtown Boston. I documented the IN FORM exhibit which was officially opened to the public with a kick off event. From the street, you can see the giant green stairs designed by Howeler + Yoon Architecture.…

St. Marie, Montana: A Post-Apocalyptic Suburban Purgatory

St. Marie, Montana. This is a small town in Valley County in the northern part of the state. It’s another piece of forgotten American history that outside eyes rarely see. It was the home of a working Air Force base back in the 1950’s, but since then has been decommissioned. Although there are still almost…

A Modern and Welcoming Medford Home

I recently photographed a Medford home for Hampshire House Design. The entire shoot was done in one day and was fueled by collaboration, coffee, and background music from Miles Davis. We were aiming to get straight architectural photographs of each room as well as details throughout the house. We needed to get shots in the…

Say Something Poster Project Judging Process

The Say Something Poster Project is in its second year. The project is designed to stimulate the minds of young people with creative, witty, and visually interesting posters created by up-and-coming and established graphic designers. Last year, the top twenty winners’ posters were placed in the Home For Little Wanderers in Roslindale, MA. The younger…

Sweet Cupcakes

A cupcake store is hardly the worst environment for taking photographs. These sugar dense, nutrient lacking cupcakes are conducive to permagrins from a cold hard sugar shock you’re vaulted into after sucking back three of these exceptionally designed cake chunks. I worked in a bakery when I was younger, I remember Day One. We were allowed to “test”…

Indobox Photo Shoot, Website Launch Party

There’s a lot of things happening this month. I am currently working with Boston-based Architect Diane Lim(Lim Design Studio) on various projects throughout the city. I recently photographed the newly opened Sweet Cupcakes on School Street downtown for her. Those pictures will most likely be in my next post. She was the architect who also…

Hi-Rise Bakery, Cambridge

I recently worked with PRE-CON Construction a few weeks ago. A project they recently completed was the the Hi-Rise Bakery Cafe, second of two locations in Cambridge. It was a complete remodeling with a unique design for a Cafe, take a look at the wooden ceilings. I also love the table and chair design. The…

Cemeteries, Boston Globe Magazine

A few weeks ago I went to take pictures with Courtney at Mt. Auburn Cemetery right before peak Fall colors kicked in. Perfect day and perfect location; a place I’ve been meaning to shoot at for some time. We headed to Harvard Square as the night set in and finished the shoot at the Goorin…

Centrailia, Pennsylvania

In mid-June, I head out on a road trip across the country to document America. My initial intention was to “diagnose America”, which I realized gave me an instant negative stance in the way I was going to view things. I realized that would be a too obvious of an approach. So I asked myself, “Why not…

Crush Nova Shoot and Roadtrip

Last weekend I worked with a band called Crush Nova, who did a set at the 2011 Boston Pride. It was weather-wise a dismal day, but we were able to make some photographs inside the City Hall Plaza, something I wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to do.

Photo Exercise #2: Newbury Street

This week’s assignment was giving ourselves one hour to produce six images on Newbury Street during a weeknight. Being the first real night of the year that felt like summer, taking pictures got me especially anxious, even considering I was on a shoot for 8 hours all day already, with little sleep the night before.…

Stills From A Video Production

Last week I had the experience to take stills during a video production for food photographer and educator Gary Tardiff. He wanted an opening video for his website to show how he works his magic in studio. I had the experience to work with Richard Klug, who directed, and Richard Shultz, who was assistant director. It was…

Photo Exercise #1: Chinatown/Theater District(Stuff Magazine Revisited)

Last night I gave myself an assignment shooting with a somewhat easy objective and a set time limit. This idea was to allow you to just create pictures instead of worrying about shooting portfolio-caliber work. If you decide to do one of these exercises on a late night whim, all the better. Last night my…

All Up In Florida

After still going through my archives to find work that’s lost subjectivity, so I can look at it as something new, I thought I would compile a mini-portfolio of my visits to Florida. Having not seen photographs taken from a year or more ago, or even just a half-year, it dissolves your connection with it.…

Colorado, New Site Mockup

I’ve taken a few trips to Colorado recently over the last half-year for work and otherwise, so I thought I would show some of my favorites pictures. There’s one shot with some fellas on a mountain, I’m the one in the middle. I also posted a full resolution panorama that’s 360° from the top of the mountain,…

Pre-con Construction

I recently did some work with Pre-con Construction, based out of Boston. It’s a company that does historical restorations, residential and office renovations, as well as many other kinds of construction. It was a long, but fun project to work with them as well as Visual Dialogue, who created the website. I’ve posted some photographs…

New Portraits, Website On The Way

In about a month or less, I’ll have an entirely new website with a new interface. Brought to you by the crafty hands of Donovan Brien and Matthew Budelman. Both have been working very quickly and diligently in getting me this amazing new site, I can’t wait to share it. I’ve accumulated quite a bit of photographs…

Possibilities in Limitation

I am currently benefiting from a change of environment and atmosphere. I am writing this while driving through Omaha, Nebraska en route to Boulder, Colorado. Three nights prior to this one, which just so happened to be my 26th birthday, I spoke at an event called Pecha Kucha and discussed my experiences of overcoming creative…

Stuff Magazine’s One Night In Boston

I was recently selected to be a photographer for the yearly issue of Stuff Magazine called “One Night In Boston”. It is an incredibly fun shoot where each photographer(I think there were about fifteen this year) is assigned a specific area in in and around Boston and photograph it. There aren’t any rules, requirements or…

Show Others Your Junk and Kill Your Darlings

I just took a look at some videos for CS5, I’m blown away! The tools you can use to correct architecture; image recomposition, image retargeting, seam carving, it’s all unbelievable. It’ll make workflow a lot easier and make you spend less time in Photoshop all together. In February I started as a Teaching Assistant for…

Published in Jazzit Magazine

I recently worked with guitarist and film scorer Massimo Sami. He’s a very talented musician and a lot of fun to work with. Jazzit is an Italian magazine, so don’t try to strain your eyes to read the text as it’s in Italian.

Keep Your Camera On You

One of the reasons photography fascinates me is because the field is always changing. There are always new trends that come into the photo world, much like music, fashion, anything else, really. I think it’s just a natural cycle all art forms encounter. I think the key to being a good photographer is to shoot…

British Airways Contest – My England and France Trip

Europe was the bee’s knees. The only issue about going there was that I wanted to also travel to other countries that I’ve always wanted to go to once I set foot. I have a lot of stories to tell, but I’ll just give the lowdown. The purpose of this trip was to shoot a…

Business Practices, British Airways, The Wine Bottega

I’ve always had the internal debate on what photography is, methodically. If we capture a candid moment out of being in the right place at the right time, is that the same thing as constructing a visually stimulating photograph with complete creative control? I think a good photographer has to know both and of course…

Stuff Magazine and Staying Motivated

I find myself getting inspired from everything around me. People. Shapes. Color. The world is your playground, why not use it for any and all photographic purposes as well? I find that to maintain a connection to your creative self, you need incorporate a delicate balance of work and play with what you love to…

Chicago and The Everyone Festival

I just returned from Chicago for some work/fun. I love that city, there’s always so much going on and so little time to accomplish it all. I was able to meet with some old friends to attend “The Everyone Festival.” It essentially was a recollection of old friends in Wicker Park, throwing a party with…

The B(oNE) Show, Emerge and g2o Spa/Salon, New Things

I recently attended the B(oNE) Show which was held at Mass Art on June 11th (I know, a month late). This is a yearly event that showcases numerous pieces from a Graphic Design competition by the AIGA Boston. I helped with shooting events and the catalog. It was a rewarding experience and worked with some…

New Inspirations, New Work

I am just finishing up some work for an Interior Designer I’ve been working with, Kristine Mullaney. Anything regarding interior design, this is the person to talk to. She does a range of customized interiors with a unique variety and always keeps her design classy. If you want to see some of her work, take…

Gary Land, Drobo, Copley Society of Art

Drobo purchased. I just got in a  4TB Drobo system. I had a shoot yesterday morning and when I got home, I had to move 10GB of images from one drive to another before I could load my images. I do not have a good archiving system, but I caught wind of the Drobo and made…

Nikon D700, Photographer Jon Woolf

I’ve been traveling all over the place, even though my ties have kept me restrained in Boston mostly. I recently went to New York to shoot the band DeVotchKa last weekend, that was a blast. It was a great show and I got a lot of good pictures, take a look at my website(www.bengebo.com). I…

Site Update, Inspirational Photographers

Hey there in Blogger world, I’m in sunny Florida for a little R&R from the stress of school and from the 1+ feet of snow in Boston. I just wanted to throw up a quick post and say my website is revamped with an html option, so check it if you get a chance. Also,…

It’s Cold! Entertainers! Crewdson! Leibovitz!

It’s been awhile since I last had a post. Much has happened up to know. I saw Gregory Crewdson at Mass Art about three weeks ago. He talked a lot about his images and what brought him to the big budgeted sets he works with today. It was good to learn about how that came…

Published/Nikon D700/Photoshop CS4

Hello everyone out there in Blogger world, how’s your Thursday? It’s a beautiful Autumn afternoon here in Boston. This is my last free week before things will get really busy. I have a lot of projects ahead, like everyone else I’m sure. Anyways, just wanted to touch upon the photography world by discussing new tech…

Louisville/Sigur Ros/Destruction

Howdy, friends! I got back from Louisville, Kentucky a few days ago. The day after I arrived the city caught a nasty windstorm left over from Ike. The winds were insane and everyone was without power, road access, etc. A lot of destruction there. It was one of the worst storms the state has ever…

Camp Bisco

Howdy do, friends. Sorry about not posting anything lately, I have been uber busy with school work, moving, traveling, etc. This summer has been packed to say the least. Every weekend for the past month and a half I have traveled somewhere. Anyways, I will try to get a post up AT LEAST every two…

Another Post, Another Toast

A lot of things have been brewing lately. I’ve had a lot of projects that I’ve completed, others I’ve started, others I’m procrastinating. I have some new ideas, but they need a lot of premeditation and thought. It’s really inspiring to watch other friends’ work and help apply it to your own. What’s funny about…

Trouble During Night Photography Shoot

So my friend Kendra and I wanted to go nightshooting. Her, for some self-portraits, and I for some non-urban night photography. I had it all planned out to where we should go. Somerville, Malden, over to some Reservoir’s in the area, then maybe to Lynn or somewhere near the coast? All sounds great. We got…
