Robert Benson

Diversity! I like to think my work is diverse, and mirrors my background and interests. I'm an editorial and commercial photographer in SAN DIEGO.

I go in with a rough plan, but enjoy seeing what organically happens, with real moments, whether it's with people or an interior.

-Syracuse University educated photojournalist.

-Spent many years shooting daily assignments for newspapers. In later years transitioned to commercial and creative editorial magazine type work.

-My passion is shooting hospitality, interiors and people in interiors along with lifestyle. Official Marriott-approved photographer.

-Impeccable work acumen and attention to detail.

-Grew up in Minnesota. Voyagers National Park is favorite place in world. And I've been everywhere.
