Hi, my name is Jeffrey Bennett
, and I'm a professional photographer living in the beautiful, mile-high city of Denver, Colorado. Combined with a true passion for photography, the strength, means, and determination to find the locations with the most awe-inspiring landscapes, and the equipment to make my artistic visions come alive, you'll find that my photography is second-to-none. My specialty is in nighttime and cityscape photography, and even though Denver is a very photogenic place, I'm fortunate enough to be able to capture breathtaking scenery
from all over the world.
From the first time I pressed a camera's shutter button almost eight years ago, photography has been a truly fulfilling experience for me and I continue to find new ways to express my creativity. Being entirely self-taught, I strive to capture gorgeous images and breathtaking scenery every chance I get. Every photograph I take has special meaning to me and I always put my whole heart into it. For me, part of the thrill of getting a great photo is occasionally putting myself [or my equipment] into dangerous positions (never too dangerous, though). It's very exciting to find that perfect shot stored on my camera's memory card when I get back to safety.
Photography started out as a hobby with the Nikon Coolpix 2000 2-Megapixel digital camera. I quickly learned what made a good photo, and what didn't. I would experiment with different composition, lighting, and techniques - my camera went just about everywhere I went. About a year later, as a high school graduation present to myself, I purchased a Canon PowerShot G3 4-Megapixel digital camera. After four years and more than sixty-thousand photos later, I decided it was time for another upgrade - this time, to a professional-quality camera. With the Canon Rebel XTi 10-Megapixel DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex), I had an entirely new set of features to learn and the ability to capture even better photos. Two and a half years later and more than thirty-thousand photos, I made another upgrade to my current camera - the amazingly versatile and sophisticated Canon Rebel T1i 15-Megapixel DSLR. Along with upgrading my camera body, I bought a wide-angle lens before I went to China in December 2009
and Mexico in January 2010
. Doing this allowed me to capture some truly magnificent photos abroad.
Today, I'm more passionate about photography than ever and I continue to capture beautiful and unique works of art that you're sure to enjoy. Whenever I go out to shoot, I carry around five lenses, four filters, an external flash, and a number of other accessories that allow me to get the perfect shot whenever and wherever I may happen to see it.Making the world more beautiful, one photo at a time...Jeffrey BennettArtByJB.com
