Ben Painter is a local photographer, musician, and all-around cool guy. Ben regularly shoots photos for events around town, works the bar at Commonwealth Bar & Stage, and is the lead singer for up and coming "punk-infused rock n' roll groove" band Bad Animal. Semi regularly, Ben and myself will meet up to hang out, talk music and local happenings, and shoot a few photos, the latter of which he is the most talented at.

Ben's style could be described as classic rock n' roll meets modern casualwear. You can usually find him in band tees and off-colour denim rocking some mean boots or other leather footwear. You'll regularly see this guy around some of the most happening Calgary locales playin music, pourin drinks, or just havin a good time. Check out @stillz on Instagram for some of his life and photography (both equally interesting).
