About Ben

Ben Adams 2–>My name is Ben and I am one of the photographers as well as the owner of Joyful Visions Photography.  I started playing piano when I was 6 years old.  Like music, I picked up a camera at a young age as well.  I started taking pictures when I was 10 years old using my Dad’s 35mm camera that he had.  I got my own camera at 14 and used to love taking pictures of other class-mates and became the year-book photographer as well as the one that took pictures for all the sporting activities.  (It was a small school.)  My skills continued to develop, but just on the casual side.  I never really thought about applying my skills to a job.

Even though it is not my full-time job now, on top of working with music and computers, I still enjoy photography.  Whether it is working with a professional model, or taking family pictures, Photography is an art that I enjoy where I can express my creativity.  I enjoy bringing out the bright side of my subjects.  I get to listen to so many stories about the various lives that we interact with.  The stories behind the pictures are as amazing as the pictures that I get to take.

My Equipment

Though there are several names for Nikon, that is my equipment of choice.  I shoot with a D3200.  Here are my lenses that I use:

  • Nikon 24-70 F2.8 ED
  • Tamron 70 – 300 F3.5
  • Nikon 18-55 F3.5 – 5.6

For lighting, I use Alien Bees.
