Growing up in Oklahoma, Hollis Bennett learned how to get his hands dirty at a young age. Worked his share of farms and ranches—logged his hours both in the saddle and on the tractor. Graduated from the wide open of the Midwest to the frigid shores of the Alaska Peninsula along the Bering Sea, where he lived and worked a handful of years as a commercial fisherman and guide.
All that time in infinite horizons, somehow Hollis found photography, and was able to translate that space into the confines of a frame. He started capturing images of the things he knew well, and he continued traveling. That’s turned into over a decade of award-winning filmmaking and photography of hunting, fishing, agriculture, construction, trucks—pretty much anything with tires, mud, tools, machines, and the real people that work with them. And he’s done this with clients such as RAM TRUCKS, LANDROVER, HONDA, CUB CADET, IBM, UBER, and CITGO. Anyone who will let him keep his hands dirty.
