Meet Jeffrey Benjamin
Jeffrey Benjamin created Breakthrough Quotes out of a passion for inspirational quotations from some of the greatest minds on earth. Jeffrey has been collecting famous quotations for more than 30 years. Along with collecting quotes, Jeffrey has also been shooting nature photography for over 20 years during his travels through North America, as well as other places around the globe. Coupling famous quotations with nature photography is one of his obsessions. He also founded Breakthrough Training in 1993, offering corporate training in the areas of leadership, team building, and effective communication. He is the co-author of the books series Real Life Habits for Success®.
Among his most favorite places to photograph are National Parks while traversing some of the amazing trails with epic views that stir the soul and warm the heart. Depending on the season you can freeze your butt off, too. Some of the most impressive photography can be captured in Yosemite National Park, Glacier National Park, Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Death Valley National Park, Zion National Park and Grand Canyon National Park. The trails in these parks are both inspiring and invigorating.
The majority of photography has been captured by a Canon D70, GoPro 7 and a GoPro 8. Lenses for the Canon used are a 50mm, 10-18mm, and a 55-250mm. Sony a73 with 28-70mm lens. Underwater shots were captured by the GoPro cameras.
A core practice of shooting photography learned over the years is to take thousands of shots to capture a few amazing photos. Digital allows you to take and delete whatever you choose, so keep the shutter button moving and you are guaranteed to be surprised on the beauty you will memorialize. A camera shot involves a future, a present and a past. A future in what you want to shoot, a present moment that you see, and a past on your capture to review. A photo is a journal that envelopes all points of time to enjoy.
