My name is Benjamin McDonald. From the simplistic and routine to the turbulent and chaotic, I aim to capture the moments that exemplify the human experience. For me, photography goes beyond the press of a button. I use my camera and a focused lens to provoke thought, to stimulate discussions, and to elicit an emotional response. I’m at my best when I'm immersed in my surroundings, Connecting with others, and acquiring new perspectives.
My photos are not digitally altered except for as described below:
I occasionally apply minor adjustments to photos including cropping, dodging/burning, and conversion into grayscale. All adjustments are minimal and are made in the interest of preserving the integrity and authenticity of the moment captured.
I adhere to a set of standards inspired by numerous sources including The Associated Press, The National Press Photographers Association and The International Federation of Journalists.
