We are delighted to welcome Ben Stamatovich, better known as The Drone Way as our 2023 Brisbane Truck Show Ambassador.
Ben makes his living driving the Nullarbor and has long been in love with the Bunda Cliffs along the Great Australian Bight.
We are excited to share some of Ben’s amazing footage and photography with you.
Ben has already earned himself a pretty amazing following, not just here in Australia, but right around the world.
Ben’s background story is equally compelling. Is it a redemption story? Maybe. It’s a story with some very dark moments, sadness, love and plenty of self-deprecating humour, all capped off with loads of inspiring resilience.
Ben told us the open road certainly gives you time to contemplate life and your place in it; now Ben does just that – but from a bird’s eye view.
“This drone, it was just a game changer,” he said. “I still had my bad days, but the distraction this drone’s got and from the beauty that it captures how can you not be positive.
“When I’m seeing it on the screen, it’s just beautiful and it’s changed my way of thinking.”
At the end of it all, we find ourselves with this wonderful Australian who is doing everything he can to not only make good, but to pay it forward.
Make sure you are subscribed for all the news bulletins coming out during the led-up to the 2023 Brisbane Truck Show, as Ben shares his story with all of us. It’s quite a ride.
We are thrilled to be hosting a gallery of Ben’s work in the new Merchandise Alley at the 2023 Brisbane Truck Show. Ben will have a wide range of his most popular prints on display and for sale plus calendars and other collectibles.
