the who, what, and why.

WHO I AM, WHAT I CAN OFFER, AND WHY I DO WHAT I DO.

THOUGH I HAVE ALWAYS HAD A PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY, I MARK THE BEGINNING OF MY PROFESSIONAL CAREER IN 2013. I'M STILL LEARNING AND GROWING AND I HOPE THAT NEVER CHANGES. MY GOAL IS TO PUT MY ALL INTO MY WORK BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, ALL YOU SEE IS YOU AND WHAT YOU LOVE IN IT.

MY NAME IS ABENI

(AH-BEN-AY)

HI! I GUESS IT'S FAIR YOU KNOW A LITTLE ABOUT ME: I WAS BORN IN CHINA BUT RAISED IN THE MOUNTAINS OF UTAH. I LOVE ALL THINGS WILD AND FREE. I TAKE AN IMMENSE AMOUNT OF INSPIRATION FROM MY SURROUNDINGS AND I FEEL SO LUCKY TO CALL THIS PLACE HOME.

FOR ME, THERE'S NOTHING QUITE LIKE PHOTOGRAPHING PEOPLE. I HAVE HAD SOME INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITIES AND MET SOME INCREDIBLE PEOPLE ALONG THE WAY. FOR ME, PHOTOGRAPHING PEOPLE IS LEARNING WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY LOVE AND MANIFESTING THAT THROUGH THE LENS.
