About Ben Williamson

Maine-based photographer, Benjamin Williamson, has a passion for making and sharing images. Waking up at 4 AM and driving hours in the dark to be in the perfect location during the best light are a big part of his routine. A lifelong love of following the weather helps him achieve his vision of including dramatic skies and weather conditions in his photos. Intensely curious about local culture and ways of life, Ben likes to showcase our relationship to the places we live and play by including man-made objects such as bridges, churches, and barns.

Ben is currently the Director of Photography at Down East Magazine as well as frequent contributor to this premier Maine magazine. He’s won awards for his work, been judged into curated shows and featured in galleries. He’s been published in numerous print outlets, books and calendars, and provides photography for many local businesses and organizations. He primarily works around his home in Brunswick, Maine, but fell in love with the incredible fall foliage opportunities in New Hampshire and Vermont in recent years.
