Ben Girardi

PROBAR® Ambassador
From: Sandy, Utah
Focus: Adventure Photographer, Snowboard Photographer

Quiet, reserved, and pensive may describe Ben Girardi. Yet, his work is defined by imaginative and bold statements of balance and composition, color and content, exhibiting creativity as well as technical knowledge. With Ben’s strong dedication to the art and craft of photography he strives to produce images that will influence the viewer.

After picking up a camera in his early teens, photography became Ben’s passion, alongside snowboarding, his talent at both readily identifiable. He obtained a BFA degree in Professional Photographic Illustration from Rochester Institute of Technology. In winter, Ben Girardi and his camera may be found at various locations throughout North America. And for nearly a decade he’s traveled to Argentina during summer to spend more time behind the lens shooting winter sports.

Ben’s work has been published in numerous snowboard and ski magazines, catalogs, and online. He bases his professional photography career in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Since I am always carrying a heavy camera pack it is nice to get some fuel that is small and light weight that can keep me shooting all day. PROBAR®s can be stashed in any pocket of my bag without adding much additional weight. On top of that they are healthy and delicious and provide me with plenty of energy.

When Not Adventuring

I enjoy climbing, exploring, cooking, and reading. I also greatly enjoy getting to put the camera away and getting some powder turns for myself.


Continue to shoot photos on a daily basis always striving to create unique work. Aquire more assignment work from companies/magazines.
