Nick Benson

Howdy! I'm a web developer, photographer, aviation geek, and train buff from Burnsville, MN.


Automatic AvGeek flight alerts + filterable arrival/departure boards

Web Development

I partner with designers and agencies to build and maintain new websites managed by Craft CMS.


Lou Capwell and I cohost a podcast about railroad photography.

Railroad Photography

My train photography has been featured in publications and marketing collateral by Canadian Pacific, Kansas City Southern, Trains Magazine, and many others.

Railfan Atlas

Railfan Atlas is a beautiful map interface for exploring Flickr's railroad photography. With nearly two million photos from 30,000 photographers, it's one of the largest databases of railroad photography on the internet. It's been covered by Railfan & Railroad Magazine; the Trains Magazine Blog, and CityLab.

Other foamer stuff not exciting enough to warrant a direct link on the homepage.
