We spent a few minutes talking to award winning, Pro Photographer, Ben Ginsberg, about his photography, and what he is looking for in a winning image for judging the Spring 2015 photo contest. He also shares an experience that he had, (that we all will probably experience as well), and what he does now to avoid it in the future.

In 2013 Benjamin was honored as a finalist in the Red Bull Illume action and adventure sports photography competition, and his finalist image is currently touring the world as part of the Red Bull Illume Exhibition. In 2014 he was once again honored as a finalist in the Smithsonian Photo Contest, as well as profiled by National Geographic Adventure. His images have been published in local, internationally based, and internationally distributed magazines; numerous web campaigns; billboards; advertising mailers; and TV commercials. Some of his clients include: Surfing Magazine, Surfer Magazine, National Geographic Adventure, and Surfline.com. Benjamin is the guest judge in the Spring 2015 Photo Contest.
