About Ben

I grew up in the Black Hills of South Dakota and I knew very early on that I wanted to end up with a career researching and preserving the landscape, plants, and animals I grew up admiring. Today, I study Biology at South Dakota State University and I love to fish, cook and travel whenever I can.

I also fell in love with photography at a young age thanks to my older brother Bryce Vickmark; a professional, and well accomplished Boston based photographer (

It has always been a dream of mine to be involved with the conservation and research of marine and freshwater ecosystems and maybe one day even have a photo of mine featured in National Geographic.  

You can see the photos I have submitted on my "National Geographic Your Shot" profile in the link below.
