On a recent visit to the DMV area, I visited the famed Inner Harbor in Baltimore, MD. My friends and I were walking around and enjoying the city when I saw a man taking photos of the scenery. In true Benjamin Coy fashion, I stopped and hit my best Tyra Banks- America’s Next Top Model Pose. I posed, he snapped the pic and…
After that, I took his business card and decided to keep in touch! When it was time to spotlight a few dynamic creators, Ben Cushwa of Crown and Flint Photography was one of the firsts on my mind. He’s a “rocket scientist by day, photographer by night.”
INTRODUCING: Ben Cushwa of Crown and Flint Photography!
WHEN DID YOU START YOUR PLATFORM? WHY?
“2018. I started off in photography a few years before that under the brand name “Nautography doing sailing/nautical work. I needed a different platform for my expanding non-nautical work, so I started Crown and Flint Photo.”
WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOU? WHY?
“I’m inspired by anyone who is bold enough to put themselves out in the world for the sake of their craft. Being willing to face down judgment like that is one of the truest forms of courage.”
Have a good story and tell it well.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF?
“None. I am who I am today in part because I didn’t know then what I know now. I’d never change that.”
