My name is Ben Tero and I am a photographer from Portland, Maine. I grew up in Portland and am still living there when not in school. I am currently finishing a degree in Biochemistry at the University of Maine in Orono. My plan to attend medical school at some point in the future after taking some time off from school to work, travel, and take as many photos as possible. Photography started off as a hobby for me after graduating high school, but from there has grown into something I am very passionate about. I spend my weekends exploring the rocky shoreline in Acadia, photographing school events for my job in the marketing department at UMaine, or taking trips from school down to Portland to see family and friends.
