About Me

Ben Salb

Hey there.


I'm a macro photographer and OM SYSTEM Ambassador that's passionate about high magnification bug and spider photography. I only photograph living subjects and make sure to treat them with kindness during the process. I do not use any methods to freeze or chemically still a subject, even with high-frame focus stacking.

I'm a hobbyist that enjoys the craft for what it is, but I've had some requests for prints. If you're interested, please see the PRINTS page that links to my ShootProof gallery.

Thank you for stopping by!
