Through April 30, 2013
Ben, a long time resident of Kenilworth, NJ, has pursued the Art of Photography for over 40 years through camera clubs and art association activities.
He had his beginnings in 1968 through the Union Camera Club (which is no longer active). Joining many other clubs over the years, he became president of the Cranford/Millburn Club and later the president of the Camera Naturalist Club in Basking Ridge (winner of the Natures Best Magazine for Best Camera Club in the Country 2004).
Ben is self-taught. He’s learned his techniques through joining camera clubs, from other photographers and also through reading relevant materials.
Over the years he has won many awards. He was awarded “Top Image” in NJ 12 times and runner up three times in the New Jersey Federation of Camera Clubs (NJFCC). He has been written up many times by the Star Ledger and other news papers. His images have been shown on calendars in Natures Best Magazine and in many Studios around the State, along with the Smithsonian in Washington.
Ben was awarded a citation from NJFCC in 2000 for his work over the years for judging, putting on programs, and for his efforts in promoting photography in general. Visit his website: benveneziophotos.smugmug.com
