Nick Benson

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

Web Development

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


A better AvGeek experience: automatic flight alerts by text or email and filterable arrival/departure boards at major airports in the US and Canada.


Lou Capwell and I chat with interesting railfans on our biweekly railroad photography podcast.

Railfan Atlas

One of the largest databases of railroad photography on the internet, this Flickr / Google Maps mashup has been covered by Railfan & Railroad Magazine; the Trains Magazine Blog, and CityLab.

Railroad Photography

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

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