Hi! My name is Ben Ruset and I’m an photographer who specializes in landscape photography. I live on the Jersey Shore in Asbury Park, the town that inspired Bruce Springsteen. Now it inspires me.

My interest in photography began at a young age when my mother taught me the basics of photography on her Pentax K1000 35mm film camera. It began a thirty year obsession with capturing the world around me. I still have, and enjoy using, that old camera.

I love photographing the ordinary places that people overlook every day without noticing the hidden beauty. A photograph offers us a chance to slow down, examine a scene, and make an emotional connection.
