Ben Horton National Geographic Photographer/Explorer

Ben Horton started his career as a photographer by taking photographs of places where other people simply couldn’t go. The more remote the location, the harder it was to get there, the more appeal it had for the young upstart. It wasn’t long before Ben moved on to working in the commercial world, and was picked up by some of the top names in fashion and advertising. Over the last few years, Ben has begun utilizing drones for aerial photography and has become an established voice in the movement to incorporate drones into adventure photography. Ben is a contributing photographer for National Geographic, and the founder of ACCESS Collective, an advertising agency that connects brands with authentic adventures.

Ben originally began shooting aerial photography from an ultralight, but with the advent of drones, he's seen the flexibility of drones as a way to get into locations that are otherwise inaccessible.
He uses drones to tell stories from a perspective that until now, has been off limits.
