Benjamin Xiao

Bay Area photographer specializing in lifestyle, portraits, and landscapes.

I am an engineer by day, but an actor and photographer by night. I first fell in love with photography two years ago when I bought my first DSLR camera to shoot a short film. Ever since then I’ve been devoting more and more of my time and energy towards honing my photography skills, particularly in lifestyle portraits and landscapes.

As a photographer, I like to focus on the emotions that a picture evokes. I seek to capture the serenity of a sunset walk on the beach, the hustle and bustle of city life, and the whimsy of a girl dancing through a field of grass. I believe that photography is as much a story-telling medium as any novel.
