Benjamin Chernivsky continually searches for an honest and accurate photograph of the world. His unique perspective comes from seeing not just within the frame, but by better understanding photography as a visual text which eyes and minds read, not just watch.

The power of his work is from feeling. This essential part of life, he believes, is the soul, the energy and the frame of imagery. Inspired footsteps -- by Life, Truth, and Love -- allow the natural world to unfold and create this visual journey.

Formally educated in the techniques of photography at the College of DuPage, his jump into the field began when he he accepted position as Courier Photography Editor in the 2004-05 school year. Ben graduated in 2006 and currently works as a freelance photographer - journal and wedding based - while finishing an English degree (Creative Writing, focus on Poetry and visual theory) at Principia College, located in Elsah, IL.

He has worked for publications such as National Geographic Traveler magazine, and The Chicago Tribune newspaper.

Ben is immediately available for hire as a traveling freelance photographer and is based between Chicago and St. Louis throughout the year.
