An avid outdoorsman, Ben is a registered Maine Guide, former US National Whitewater Canoe Champion and has completed the 100-mile Canadian Ski Marathon.  For 25 years he worked in product management and development at L.L. Bean, where he was Director of Sporting Goods and Product Manager for Outdoor Gear.  In recent years, using his in-depth knowledge of the natural world, Ben has turned his attention to the discovery of dramatic and inspiring nature photography images.  From his 110 year-old camp at the Narrows on Richardson Lake in Maine’s Rangeley Region, he is exploring the photographic possibilities of scenic landscape, wildlife and plant subjects.
