A.J. Benson started Benson Productions while he was in high school at Grand Terrace High School. Starting in 10th grade, AJ became heavily involved in the audio and lighting for all of the school events. Later in 11th grade, he started working with the student news and yearbook and soon was in charge of managing the equipment for both groups. After high school, Benson Productions took off and moved into a few different services including wedding photography, wedding videography, real estate photography, and family photography. Benson Productions now focus mainly on wedding videography and real estate photography.
