South Florida-based photographer Ben Hicks has journeyed across the Americas and ventured to exotic locales spanning the globe to compose a profoundly diverse collection of fine art photography that truly captures the majestic beauty of the natural world. One of his favorite landscapes is Deerfield Beach, Florida. The photos below are images he took for the City website.
This self-proclaimed “adventure boy” not only strives to portray the familiar in extraordinarily original ways but also takes big risks to capture the most complex often dangerous situations, including big waves and precarious animal encounters. He does this because it is his desire to share his admiration for mother nature's creations.
Whether shooting tropical beachscapes in the South Pacific vast sandstone buttes in the American southwest or the first few open water strides of a leatherback sea turtle hatchlings there is no doubt that Hicks’ photography renders intricately detailed images that captivate viewers and serve as a testament to his enjoyment and appreciation of nature.
