Ben Dulay

This is me. I'm a visionary, an ENFP, and left-handed. I'm creating, dreaming, and trying to slow things down where I can. San Diego is my home. I am learning more about myself everyday. I hope that something here inspires you to be you.

If you want to work on something with me, I'd love to chat about it.

I think facts about someone are very revealing. They contribute to the real person behind the face while educating others about the life they're living. So here's some random facts about me.





Running is gold.

5 minutes of music.

I collect mugs.

I guess you can say I have the body for it. But I just enjoy running. It's a mash of God time, fitness, exploration, therapy, and people watching all in one. If you love running too, hit me up and I'll join you.

I have a rule set to play piano, guitar, or another instrument at least 5 minutes a day. It always ends up being more than that. Being a musician since 2006, time spent playing music sure has added up.

That's right. I find mugs during my travels around the world and bring them home. I have a mug drawer that guests can pick out their favorite when they come over. It's a fun way to see what people pick out.

My best photos are the ones that i will never take

This phrase is reminiscent of one of my favorite movies, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. It addresses my desire to be a better human than a photographer. I want to be present with the people I'm around and live a more full life than just what my photography can suggest. Don't mishear me in saying that I don't take amazing photos. If I see something worth capturing, I will pounce at the chance. But, I have come a long way in this being that I used to have my camera by my side all the time. At this point of my life, it's not about performance and flashy things. It's the little moments that are just too good that a photograph would take away the magic.

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

1 Thessalonians 5:18
