I moved to Utah for a job at the Standard-Examiner in 2013. After nearly six years as a staff photographer, this is my last week at the paper.

I’ve been extremely lucky to be able to explore and photograph Ogden and Northern Utah on behalf of the Standard-Examiner and its readers. Before leaving, I’ve pulled together a few of my favorite images and memories from my time here.

Thank you to everyone who let me (and my camera) share their stories.

Kind regards, thank you.


The Standard has the best photos. You've reflected our lives, our communities, and our beautifully diverse nature. I don't know you, but I'll miss your reflections.


Such a talented eye for composition!
Ben Zach, you will be missed by the readers.

Ben Zach is not only one of the most fantastic photographers I have ever known, he is also a marvelous person and a true friend to all he comes into contact with.
