Kentucky Craftsman - Ben Aroh

Known for his wooden state key holders, Ben Aroh's love for his craft is shown through his meticulous skill and design. Check out his website here: The Wooden States. I love doing personal shoots like this as there is no stress to get a certain image just room for creativity and experimenting. We photographed in the warm cozy woodshop owned by Ben's uncle in Louisville, KY. Most of these images were shot with a mix of natural light and gelled (CTO) strobe light.

We did a small handful of portraits and several images of him working his craft.
