It takes a special person to be a Teton Gravity Research cinematographer. They have to be the perfect combination of talented camera operator, problem solver, expedition team member, while also being able to hike and ski the same lines as world-class athletes. It’s a job that many claim to want, but few have the determination to reach out and grab.
One of TGR’s most trusted cinematographers is Western alum, Ben Dann. At 26 years young Ben has already spent the better part of four winters filming with TGR. Growing up in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Ben witnessed and was continually inspired by the rise of TGR. His fondest memories included watching films like Tangerine Dream and Anomaly in Teton Village. This ignited a desire to become an action sports cinematographer, a dream that is currently playing out today.
