Behind the Controller

My name is Benson. I am a self taught, weekend warrior, aerial photographer...that is a teacher by trade. I am currently based in the St George Sutherland Shire in NSW.

I learnt to fly a drone in 2016 and I have been hooked ever since. Unique perspectives, having freedom and control in the air, along with almost unlimited angles is what drew me in. I feel this puts no boundaries on creativity. It challenges me as a creator to constantly mix up my style and moods to my work.

My favourite thing to photograph is waves and surfers. When the surf is large, you’ll find me chasing the waves and anyone who's willing to surf them. The combination of timing and dexterity can lead to some amazing images. The feeling I get when I perfectly frame and time a shot is like nothing else! The results speak for themselves.
