Using specialist camera technology Ben has filmed natural history documentaries for both the BBC and Channel 4. He operated all of the remote cameras in the Channel 4 program ‘Hippo, Nature’s Wild Feast’ and ‘Elephant, Life After Death’. Ben spent months on location in Africa, the Bahamas, Siberia and many more, developing the knowledge and experience to make documentaries in difficult conditions and complex situations.
