My name is Ben, and I want to thank you sincerely for taking the time to stop by my gallery. I am 'RINENBACH PHOTOGRAPHY' currently based in southern California. I specialize in fine art and landscape images, primarily in black & white.
I live in San Diego where I am a father of 2 (my son Ben is 13, my daughter Cam is 11) and a husband of 1 (lovely Christa). Before throwing myself nostril deep into photography I was a skateboarder, a gymnast, a gear head, a soldier, a construction worker, a firefighter/paramedic and a marathon runner.
After a back injury forced me to retire early from firefighting, and running among other things... I picked up a camera, and would take it on long hikes as I tried to rehabilitate myself. I quickly developed a kinship with my camera that I have a hard time articulating. It is quite possibly the most therapeutic venture I have encountered. Photography is my soul searching weapon of choice.
I'm a devout believer in the religion of kindness, the fact that music can actually change the world, and that the simplest of gestures can change the trajectory of a human life. I believe in living a life that is not easily summed up in only a few paragraphs, and that not having enough cash to leave a good tip means you should have eaten at home.
I got pretty good grades in high school and I've watched a ton of youtube videos.
galleries/exhibitions:I've been in a few.
My occupation and passion is to invite you behind the curtain, to see what I see from where I see it. I want to show you how the light looks from the dark shadowy crevices, and what darkness looks like from those happy, bright places.
Thanks for helping me live my dream, dear friends. Please take care of, and be kind to one another out there 🖤
