Photography started for him on a Nikon FE from his father. Still the best camera he has ever held. He took that camera and its successors and traveled a bit. Building a list of visited countries that equals his age.

He draws on his travel experiences to develop inspiration and his photographic style. With an unmatched work ethic and high technical standards, he approaches his commercial photography with the same passion as when he first got his hands on that FE.

Benjamin Stern is a food and beverage photographer based in Chicago. He has a fondness for a patina whether on an old film camera or an old motorcycle.
