Hey friends, I am eager to share with you a new online magazine started by one of my dear friends, Sunshine Magazine. In early September, Sunshine Magazine launched their very first digital issue & I was fortunate enough to have photographed the cover photo. As well, they interviewed me for the magazine & the article is featured on pages 36-41, click here to read Issue 1. I loved sharing a bit more about my journey to becoming a photographer as well as some of my favorite things… music, gear, etc. So when you get a second, check out Sunshine Magazine & be sure to follow them on Instagram // @sunshinemagazine. Congrats Melissa, Michelle, Leann & Stefani… beautiful work, ladies!

Hey friends! The holidays are right around the corner & I, like many of you, will be planning our Fall family session. I absolutely love this time of year as the weather gets a bit of coolness to the air & the phones are ringing with requests for family photo sessions. Plus, I get to break out my favorite jacket! So… I’d love to invite you to tune in at 8:15am this Thursday morning to Mornings with Fox 43 with WBIR as I am appearing on a segment titled, “Tips for a Fantastic Family Session.” I’ll do my best to provide you with a few thoughts to consider in order to take advantage of your upcoming photo session, including advice about location & wardrobe. Above all, I hope to communicate that family sessions are a great way to do something you love with your family & walk away with beautiful photos. And I’m sure your friends & family would agree that photos make great Holiday gift ideas! Tune in, it’s going to be fun!
Hey friends! I’m so excited to share the news that my film photos from Paris have been seen, curated & selected as a Gallery Show at The District Gallery in Knoxville, TN. Sweet!!! I can’t tell you how excited for Paris: A Journey on Film to be featured in such a wonderful local gallery. Here’s the deal, I’ve never done anything like this before. Yikes. I’ve had work featured in Museums for shows but this is a full gallery based on my work. Admittedly, I’m nervously excited. And, I want to make sure that you come celebrate with me for the Opening Night party on Friday, October 11, from 5:30-9pm. The kick-off party & show will be held at The District Gallery, 5113 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, TN. We’ll have food, drink, music & beautiful images displayed. I’m working with some fantastic folks to help bring new substrates to life featuring some of the photos. And of course, the pieces can be purchased & there will be prints available for all price ranges. But most of all, I would genuinely love you just to be there & help me celebrate. I’m inviting all of my favorite people & hope you’ll be able to come. It won’t be the same without you! And oh yes, invite your friends!
From the Press Release:
“The District Gallery is pleased to present a photographic journey through Paris as seen through the lens of photographer Ben Finch. PARIS: A Journey on Film features classic scenes of Paris and modern views of iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre. Finch also captures common details of everyday French culture and turns them into memorable images with his timeless aesthetic and traditional film photography.
According to Finch, “Film feels genuine, and in this digital age of editing it’s refreshing to revert back to the way pros photographed years ago. Film challenges you to capture the right natural elements since there’s not much of an option to edit.” He says not only is the show about the photographs but also the substrates his images are printed on. Photos will be displayed on wood, metal and burlap.
Award-winning photographer Ben Finch, owner of Finch Photography, has grown locally and internationally, with photo sessions in Paris and Mexico just this year. He was recently named one of Knoxville’s top photographers and has won multiple ADDY Awards. Finch has been featured in At Home Tennessee magazine as well as on WBIR’s “Your Stories” with Abby Ham. He specializes in editorial, commercial, wedding and lifestyle photography and is based in Athens, TN.”
The gallery will be held at The District Gallery // 5113 Kingston Pike | Knoxville, TN 37919 | (865) 200-4452 | www.TheDistrictGallery.com [For more information contact Cinamon Airhart at firstname.lastname@example.org ]
