Meet the Photographer

Untitled photo

Hi there! My name is Benjamin Maze, and I am a 20-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. Having strived in my photography, constantly trying to improve my skills and nail new techniques over the years, I have become fortunate  enough to win awards and have my images shared by notable publications. 


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. I also hope to educate others, both in the benefits and beauties of nature, and in advancing their own skills with photography and editing. 


Thanks very much for visiting, I hope you enjoy my photos :)
