Prairie Rim Images is owned by Ben Hollingsworth. I'm a computer programmer / Unix system administrator by day and a freelance photographer by night, specializing in fine art, commercial, event, candid, and product photography. I'm based in Lincoln, Nebraska -- home of the conference-hopping Huskers. Born and raised on an acreage near Lincoln, I gained an appreciation for God's creation and the little details that most people pass by in their busy lives. My family is full of artists, so growing up, creative expression was always encouraged. I prefer to shoot with Canon digital bodies mated to a variety of old, manual lenses (my oldest camera dates from the 1930's and belonged to my great-grandfather). I view photography as a creative outlet, and try to bring a little something different to the photos I make.

The photo gallery here at Photo.Net is quite old and out of date, representing some of my earliest work. I've chosen to let it stay that way rather than pay the annual fee to maintain yet another gallery. Please visit Prairie Rim Images to see my professional portfolio, and be sure to keep up on my photography blog as well.

June Lightning 1. After the tornado sirens stopped, the most incredible lightning storm ensued. No wind, no rain, and non-stop cloud-to-cloud bolts.
