Photography And Memories

Photography is a stress free way to capture the beauty you find in the world, at any one moment in time. Those fleeting moments may never happen again in that particular way.  Think of a particular sunset that you remember as being gorgeous and once in a lifetime.  Now imagine if you had a high quality photo of that sunset and every time you looked at that photo it brought back certain memories. Perhaps you were on your first date with your future husband or wife.  Or maybe you were lying on the beach with your family on vacation.  Photography gives us a permanent memory of so many wonderful times in our lives.

Feel Good Photos

I love when I look at a certain photos and it makes me laugh or smile.  For example we have all seen the photos of our friends that we are dying to put on facebook because they are embarassing or funny.  Or maybe those special photos of our kids or familly that make us smile every time we see them.  Without photography this would not be possible.

Picture Time Machine

I was looking at some photos of myself and my family from about 7 years ago, and it amazed me how much younger I looked in the photos.  It makes you realize how fast our life on earth really passes and how we should enjoy every moment.  It took me back almost like a time machine, to those events that I took part in, most I have I not even thought of in years.  More than likely if it was not for those photos taking our mind back in time, we would forget a lot of special moments of our time here on earth.

Rewarded Photographer

It makes me really happy when I show one of my clients a photo I captured for them, and they just love it.  They ask how large they can get it printed and how quickly they can get it.  I dont get a chance to see how it looks on the wall most of the time, but knowing its there make me very rewarded.  Most of the photos we get blown up and hang on the wall will be a part of our family and yours for the rest of our lives and possibly end up in possession of our grandkids one day.  To think that I played a part in helping create a valuable family possesion is very exciting for me.

About Me

I was born in Phoenix Arizona and moved to Missouri when I was 2 years old with my parents.  I have lived in Springfield Missouri for most of my life, I went to Pershing and then Kickapoo High School and graduated in 1991.   I then continued my education with a degree in Business/Computer Information Systems from Missouri State University. Go Bears!!

At the end of college I met and later married a beautiful girl name Mandy Tonche and we have two awesome children one girl named Paige and one boy named Trevor, our house is always full of kids my wife loves to be surrounded by them.

Around 1999 I started a company named Usedrouter.com Inc and I have been doing that now for around 10 years. I have several great employees and the success of this company has given me more free time to entertain some of my favorite hobbies.  My main hobby at this time is Photography.  About 6-7 years ago I began to take an interest in photography, I have taken somewhere in the neighborhood of 200,000 pictures. Over the years I have begun to fine tune my skills in nature, landscapes, macro, portraits, and more.  I really enjoy photography and I am now doing it as a secondary profession, I am constantly striving to improve my photography skill and gain experience to learn all that I can.

I am located in Springfield Missouri, and I can photograph in the metro area of Springfield and up to 30-50 miles away.  I have a studio here in Springfield Missouri it's located at 5335 S Campbell Ave Suite B.  You can reach me at 417-860-6703 to book a session. Or you can email me at benzo007@mchsi.com

Most of my photo sessions are done on evenings and weekends because I still have to run my company during the day.  But if there is something really important you need me to do during the day I can always make exceptions.
