Ben Brewer

Photojournalist, Freelance

Madison , Wisconsin , United States


I grew up in Golden Valley, Minnesota and studied at Grinnell College in Iowa, graduating in 2011 with a B.A. in Biological Chemistry. I have interned at the Coeur d'Alene Press (ID) and worked as a Staff Photographer for Grinnell College's Office of Communications after graduating. I most recently moved to Salt Lake City, accepting an internship at the Deseret News. After completing my time in Utah, I returned to Minneapolis-St. Paul to continue to build my photographic and visual story-telling abilities, currently freelancing for the Minneapolis Star Tribune and Wisconsin State Journal.

From professional sporting events to breaking spot news and transmitting on deadline, I am a photographer who delivers skillfully-crafted, compelling imagery across a plethora of subjects — large and small. With a focus on isolating moments of "controlled chaos" in many of my photos, I am an adventurous and motivated photographer that seeks to capture those minutiae that slip by often unnoticed. I am available for contract and freelance work in the Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Illinois areas.
