Meet the Photographer
Hi there! My name is Benjamin Maze, and I am a 19-year-old self-taught photographer, based in the south of Sydney. I have a particular passion for both big and small landscapes, evoking a sense of inspiration, wonder and curiosity.
I first picked up a camera in 2013 after being inspired by what I've seen online and hit the ground running. I now strive in my photography and am constantly trying to improve my skills and nail new techniques.
Since starting photography, I have found that my eyes have been opened to the beauty that the world has to offer, and that I appreciate these things much more than I did previously.
Through my photography, I aim to capture the beauty of the world around us that God has created, and to inspire others to discover the wonder that our earth provides.
Thanks very much for visiting, I hope you enjoy my photos :)
