Meet Benjamin Chambers

I am a photojournalist from Ecuador. In January, I moved to beautiful Erie to join the Erie Times-News as a photojournalist.

Before moving to Erie, I won a Pulliam Fellowship and worked at The Arizona Republic, another Gannett/USA Today Network publication, covering a variety of assignments in Phoenix and its surrounding areas during the hot summer months of 2021.

In the summer of 2020, I had a short (due to the pandemic) internship at The Adirondack Explorer. Here, I photographed the river, dams and hiking.

Prior to beginning my photojournalism career in the United States, I lived in New York, where I completed a master’s in journalism at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York. I also earned a bachelor’s in photojournalism at St. John’s University, took workshops at the International Center of Photography and was invited to the prestigious Eddie Adams Workshop XXVI. I love New York!
