Every Saturday we select a photo from our Flickr pool and feature it right here

Benton Sampson is a 26 year-old photographer living in Wilmington, NC. Benton's girlfriend runs a inner city tutoring program and the photo above is one of her students, 7 year-old, Elijah."I asked if I could take his photo and he did the rest," Sampson says. "No posing, no second takes, what you see is what you get."

Benton is currently staying busy shooting fashion and portraits. He is in the midst of putting together a magazine editorial, and will be in New York this week for NYFW. Benton's camera of choice at the moment is the Canon 5d Mark II, but he enjoys swapping it out every now and then for his Mamiya 645.

To see more of Benton's work please check out his Flickr, Facebook, blog and website.
