Benjamin Von Wong is notorious for epic photography. The more challenging the project, the more he enjoys it. His background in engineering gives him an edge when it comes to creative problem solving. His style may be described as hyper-realistic with a generous amount of humor and fantasy mixed in. He’s one of those photographers who has the unique talent of capturing moments that can both amaze you and make you laugh. In an inter view, he said: “The reason I create images that are epic and fantastical is to share my dreams … the reason I share the process is to take you with me on the adventure… and the reason I share my thoughts and emotions is to show you that I’m human, just like you. I’ve never felt more alive (than when doing a tricky piece of photography)… because doing something that matters makes all the difference.”
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
