About Me


My Full Portfolio is here

Benjamin Panico was born May 26, 1990 and raised in sunny Florida. The son of a Preacher and a stay-at-home mother, he started shooting at 12 years old with Kodak Film Cameras he found around his parents home and begged his mother to get the film developed at a local Eckerds where his aunt worked.
At the age of 16, Benjamin dropped out of high school and was kicked out of his parents home a few times. He became very active in the Tampa music scene, playing in the hardcore act "Board The Windows" while working a job at a clothing store.

In 2008, Benjamin joined the national performing act "Set It Off" and then began to tour the country 2 months at time for 9 months out of the year. While touring the country he met fellow creative and friend, Wood Simmons. Keeping a close connection with Wood, the two had planned to one day meet up and pursue school at The Creative Circus in Atlanta, GA while touring together.

In 2010, Benjamin then cut his ties with the band, moved back into his parents home, and worked 40 hours a week at Walmart. While back in Florida, Benjamin became involved with the music scene once again... but this time photographing it.

In July 2011, Benjamin received a phone call from Wood saying he was leaving his band and would be enrolling in school. Classes started July 11th and Benjamin only had ten days to complete his G.E.D., enroll in school, be accepted, find a house, apply for and receive a loan for a new camera, a computer, and find financial aid to cover the tuition. He enrolled and was accepted at The Creative Circus portfolio building school. The school prides itself on graduating the best-prepared, most avidly sought-after creatives in the industry.

While in school Benjamin shoots everyday and works to define his style as a photographer.

"I would love to thank everyone who helped me get this far in my adventure. The adventure is everything. Make it the best legacy possible."
