Steven Bennett

Hello, my name is Steve Bennett "The Travel Photo Guy” I am an avid traveler and photographer. I have always been fascinated with photography; I began shooting pictures back in the late 90's with my first SLR. I purchased a Nikon N50 with the 18-55mm lens and found a used 70-300mm used lens. I shot as much as I could afford to shoot. When I met my wife she was living in the Netherlands so it was the perfect time to expand my area of exposure. I made several trips over there and would shoot anywhere from 20-25 rolls of file on any given 2 week trip. Needless to say I have boxes filled with prints these days.

I am an IT Consultant and have the opportunity to travel to all corners of the country as well as limited corners of the world.

I love photography and I love to travel so being an IT consultant is the perfect match for me. I never leave home without my camera. You find some of the best photos in places you would never expect. I have seen some of the most amazing sunsets on the plane as I am headed home or traveling through the mountains in Washington State. So I have learned over the years to keep my camera close.

I have never been an official photography student or taken any traditional classes, everything I have done has been as I call it "OHT" (On the hobby training). I have some friends who are amazing photographers so I have been able to pick up a few things along the way.

My first Digital Camera was a Nikon D70, I shot this camera for ~5 years. I sold this and moved up to the Nikon D3100, I did this so that I had the ability to shoot video as well as stills. A year ago I made the big step to my latest camera. I purchased my D7000, since then I have been all over the country. You will see in my portfolio what I am talking about. I have been to Hawaii, the NW, SW, Caverns, Beaches and up into Canada.

I hope you like what you see and are interested enough to purchase one of my prints.

Thank you,
Steve Bennett “The Travel Photo Guy”
