Ben Wymer has a background in wildlife biology, photography, and land stewardship. Having worked for two land trusts, in New England and Washington state, he understands the connection between local conservation efforts and the benefits to wildlife. His photography stems from his understanding and passion for wildlife, and his desire to share knowledge with like-minded folks. Ben has created educational nature walk videos for a local land trust and for the U.S. Forest Service’s Woodsy the Owl Junior Ranger Program. He has also contributed content to the latest edition of the Birds of the Squam Lakes Region.
My passion and energy has always stemmed from my connection to nature, which began because of my proximity to the woods as a child. With years now spent exploring and studying the natural world, I have more appreciation and understanding of our planet and those we share it with.
My desire with my photography is to show the relationship of wildlife and their place in this world. I find joy in introducing people to their neighbors, whether they are furry, woody, or otherwise. Photography is an excellent medium for this purpose because it offers people a glimpse into the secretive lives and beauty of the world we all share. The best part of all though is that tomorrow is always different and it brings with it endless possibilities to learn more!
