Countdown to April/May Issue: Meet Ben

Meet Ben Carter

What is your favorite part about what you do? Whether it's during a shoot or in editing, I love that moment when my initial idea has finally taken shape visually. Seeing the idea in my head replicated in front of me is the reason I do what I do.

How do you define passion? Passion, to me, is being in love with what you're doing so much that you're constantly thinking about it. What you're truly passionate about can consume your every thought.

Why does what you do matter? What I do matters because it not only makes me happy, but others have found value in it as well. Knowing that the simple act of taking pictures can affect people I've never met is an incredible feeling.
