Benjo Arwas was born and raised by a loving and supportive family in Tel Aviv, Israel. After serving five years in the army he sought to experience the world through travel. While he was traveling, Benjo discovered his passion for photography. He decided to move to sunny California to pursue the study of art and history in photography. He graduated from Brooks Institute with a Bachelor's degree in fine arts focusing in advertising, fashion, and portraiture.
Through his lens, Benjo is inspired by the intriguing personality's of his muse. His number one muse, in fact, is his daughter Billy Jo (#BillyArwas). Through his photography, Benjo is focused in capturing the emotions and expressions of each subject. By using a mixture of textures, color, composition, and light; Benjo is able to create his unique, signature aesthetic.
Benjo likes to start his day with black coffee and listening to classic rock. After a day of shooting, he enjoys a glass of red wine and unwinds listening to Diana Krall. One of Benjo's favorite hobbies is surfing!
Benjo's studio is located in Los Angeles. To view more of Benjo's adventures behind the lens check out his Instagram account: @BENJOARWAS
