Ben will discuss “Panoramic Photography: Methods and Examples in Virginia and the Nation”
Ben Greenberg is a lifelong resident of Virginia who moved to Charlottesville for the third time in 2002. He grew up in Richmond and lived most of his adult life there. His passion for photography began in 1970 when his oldest son was born and he was lent a totally manual Kodak Retina C Camera to photograph. From this beginning his fascination with and commitment to photography grew quickly and it wasn’t long before he began capturing images of his family and the world around him
He has now photographed scenic vistas in Virginia, the mid-Atlantic area and many locations in the United States for forty years, the last thirty-five as a freelance professional photographer. His carefully crafted landscape photographs have won local and national awards and competitions and have been exhibited in numerous individual and group shows. They have been featured in diverse publications and purchased for scores of private collections.
Ben’s images are currently represented in three galleries and two other shops in Virginia. Ben also enjoys exhibiting his landscape photographs in selective outdoor arts and crafts shows, such as the Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival in Crozet, Virginia in the Spring and Fall and Arts in the Park in Richmond in the Spring. His primary subjects are the scenic vistas of mountains, landscapes, rivers, lakes and shorelines of Virginia and the nation.
