Ben Walnick - Founder and President of Creative Services
Ben spent 10+ years in the broadcast television industry with stations in Waco, Tulsa and Dallas. With degrees in Meteorology and Broadcast Journalism, he has been telling unique stories for over a decade.
He fell in love with video cameras while studying at the University of Oklahoma's Journalism School. Ben was one of the first journalists in the country to use a drone for a television station in the summer of 2016, when the Federal Aviation Administration laws changed. He has continued to push the limits of aerial photography since then.
Ben's vision is to combine journalism with the many advances in camera technology to produce unique productions for companies across the country. A complete story can be told by combining the voices of a business and its customers with beautiful aerial images and stunning video on the ground.
