Success Stories: Ben Chernivsky

Ben Chernivsky first became interested in photography while reading National Geographic magazines as a child – although “reading” technically may not be the correct term. The photographs opened up the world to him and made him want to reach out further from where he was at. At College of DuPage, he was the photo editor for The Courier. He now runs his own successful wedding photography business, This Is Feeling, and started a second business, Gifyyy, which manufactures animated gif photo booths that are selling around the world.
