Raised in a small-ish town in New York State, Owen Benfield moved to New York City in 2015 for school. After spending two years studying Fine Arts and Photography at Pace University in downtown Manhattan, he left school to pursue photography full-time in 2017. Since then, he has worked on varying fashion, beauty, and portrait sets for clients such as Vogue Italia, Macy's, Barney's New York, Refinery29, Nylon, Essence, and W Magazine.
In each photograph Owen captures, he aims to help his subjects feel their best. His ultimate goal is to empower each person he shoots, and to provide a platform to those who struggle to empower themselves.
