A Conversation with Maine Photographer Benjamin Williamson – Artist In Residence at the Hartwell House Inn of Ogunquit

By | Features, Ogunquit News, Ogunquit Photos | No Comments

If you love Maine or live in New England, chances are that you’re already familiar with some of the photography of Benjamin Williamson. Perhaps you’ve seen one of his impressive Maine images gracing a vivid cover of Down East Magazine while you stood on line at the grocery store. Or maybe you’ve visited a New England cultural landmark and seen his work gracing a recent cover of Artscope Magazine.

Williamson is talented, prolific and ambitious – with a good eye plus the drive and ambition to outperform many of the other notable photographers shooting Vacationland images. Facebook is full of his colorful captures of our coastal communities – and it’s always a complete joy to wake and find that, no matter how early you got up, Williamson beat you to it and shared his perspective of the sunrise, or the lighthouse, or the lobster boat – always with perfect composition and skies to die for.

A place where you could put on a blindfold and be turned around until you were dizzy, then pushed in whatever direction you were facing, and you’d still be able to purchase a lobster roll and beer within 25 steps.
