About Ben’s Drone Work

The DJI Phantom I modified for the Drone Journalism Lab.  This is one of the UAVs I operate in the field.

As head technologist for the Drone Journalism Lab and African SkyCAM, Ben explores the journalistic applications for aerial drone technology as well as the legal, ethical and regulatory issues connected to the emerging field.  He also builds and modifies drones for journalistic applications.  Beyond the realm of drone journalism, Ben has also worked with filmmakers, photographers and archaeologists as a cross-disciplinarian drone consultant.
