bio photo

Erica Benson is a Photographer in the Chicago land area who specializes in Photojourlism, Portraits, and Events.

I have worked for the newspaper industry since 2000 after graduating Columbia College Chicago and enhance my career as a freelance photographer as well as a part time Photography Instructor at the College of DuPage and St. Francis High School. I love being behind the camera and being able to tell a visual story everyday. As a trained Photojournalist I wait for life's moments to happen, however while approaching portraits I enjoy bringing out the personality of my subjects with a Photojournalist style. There is nothing more rewarding then being able to love what you do everyday. Copyright © 2012 by Erica Benson. All rights reserved.
