Ben De Marco
"Photography for me is being able to record things the way I see them, not always the way other people see them. I like working color, form, perspective, texture. Sometimes real sometimes what I created in my mind. I always look to learn new things and believe if you stop learning your dead. "
Ben Di Marco became interested in photography through his music business. They couldnít find a photographer to take the type of photoís we were looking for, so he started to take them. He enjoyed it and decided to pursue my interest. Ben was self taught until his introduction to Dennis Simonetti a Master Photographer instructor at The New School For Social Research in New York City . Dennis reviewed his work and asked him to join him at the New School. He stayed with Dennis four years assisting and attending his Master Printing course. In 1981, Ben founded the Brick Photo Workshop. He then turned to photojournalism. He was a contributing photographer for the Newark Star Ledger, Asbury Park Press and had a few smaller publications. He also contributed to a variety of magazines, tabletop, events and sports photography. He was an associate producer for ABC Circle Films production of ìBaby Mî.
Aside from his own workshop, he has instructed photography at Toms River North and Point Pleasant Borough HS adult programs for ten years. His photo career spanned thirty years. He is now retired, but still does selective work of varied nature. Ben has been a member of the Ocean county Artist Guild Island Heights, the Belmar Arts Council Belmar and The Guild of Creative Arts Shrewsbury.
