Ben Goertzen

Bio | Skiing | Advocacy



Born and raised in Bozeman Montana, Ben’s respect for the wild world is deeply rooted. He started out in the action sports industry as a professional skier which was fueled by his passion for documenting adventure and led to an early career in the wildlife filmmaking industry. His drive to capture natural behavior while using the latest camera technology in demanding conditions can be observed throughout his work. Along with filmmaking he recently co-founded the, Montana Grizzly Project, a non profit focused on increasing tolerance of grizzly bears on Montana’s landscape. By combining his films, advocacy work and personal experiences, Ben is changing the way people understand and interact with the wild world to ultimately help preserve what remains.
