Steve Cohen


Initially drawn to Unmanned Autonomous Systems or Drones as a means to control a camera remotely, Steven Cohen quickly came to see the advantages of autonomous systems on his sets. A commercial advertising photographer based in New York City for over 25 years and a graduate of The Rochester Institute of Technology, his embrace of autonomous systems offered him more control over an exacting process.

As his interest grew in the technology, he took a larger role in its advocacy, becoming the President of The Drone User Group With over 15,000 members nationally and founded in 2012, the DUG advocates for the safe and responsible use of civilian drone technology for positive purposes and is the only community-based organization dedicated solely to drone technology.
Further merging his passions for art and science, Steven consults for major media concerns, not-for-profit arts organizations, and educational institutions providing insight and expertise in a rapidly evolving industry.
