“With Omnicharge I was able to keep my drones charged and my cameras going, enabling me to create more content."
Once a teenager with a passion ignited by his grandfather, a seasoned press photographer, Ben Johnson's world transformed when he received a DSLR camera as a Christmas gift. This camera didn't just capture photos; it unveiled a universe of possibilities. As Ben recalls, “It opened up a whole new view on life for me and it was forever glued to my side.” Entirely self-taught, with YouTube as his mentor, Ben's passion and persistence shine through.
Today, Ben runs his own thriving business, centered around photography and film. With a lifelong obsession for cars, from roadsters to racers, he occasionally gets the thrill of capturing their allure through his lens. Working with an array of brands and gifted individuals, from small startups to high-profile clients, he delivers captivating visual campaigns, traveling to mesmerizing locations to tell their stories.
Tools of the Trade
For Ben, being constantly on the move requires a specific set of tools to capture the essence of every moment, every location.
His primary companion in the air is the DJI mini 3 pro drone. "It packs a real punch, shooting incredible stills and super high-quality video, allowing me to shoot content for any medium and capture those unique angles that are just not possible from the ground," Ben elaborates.
On the ground, the Sony A74 with a 24-70mm Lens is his "go-to Run and Gun Setup." The hybrid nature of the camera allows for swift transitions between photo and video, making it adaptable to his dynamic needs. But amidst all his professional gear, his smartphone remains a constant, serving as his organizational tool and communication bridge, essential for maintaining that cherished work-life balance. He chuckles, "As long as I've got signal and charge!"
Power Puzzles on the Go
In the ever-changing landscape of off-grid photography, Ben grapples with power dilemmas. “I rely solely on battery power to charge my devices when I'm on a shoot," he shares, highlighting the need for a power solution that's both compact and robust, keeping his creativity flowing. Although his camera is his creative lifeline, it's the unexpected power hiccups that often catch him off guard.
Recalling one such event, Ben shares, "It's always at the worst possible moment, isn't it? Like in the middle of a long flight, when you realize you've drained your phone battery halfway through."
But his most memorable power snag was with his electric car. On what seemed like a routine trip to the gym, his car transitioned into 'turtle mode' due to a low charge, crawling at just 2mph. Ben found himself waiting for a painstaking 2 hours just to gain an extra 5 miles of range so he could get his car up to speed and reach a charging point. These experiences further underscored his quest for versatile and dependable power solutions.
Staying Powered Up with Omnicharge
On his quest for the ultimate power solution, Ben discovered Omnicharge, and it was a game changer. The Omni Ultimate, with its versatility, effortlessly powered everything from his dying laptop to his drone batteries, establishing itself as an essential toolkit component.
The true prowess of Omnicharge was unveiled during Ben's expedition to Iceland. Often without power overnight, he recalls, "Traditionally, I would have to ration my device use…(but with Omnicharge,) I was able to keep my drones charged and my cameras going, enabling me to create more content for longer and document my trip in greater detail." For Ben, Omnicharge resonates as “Portable, Reliable, and Powerful.”
