& Pat Wilson Photographers
Ben and Pat Wilson are originally from Ohio.
Ben has resided in the Corpus Christi area for 23 years
and Pat has resided in Corpus Christi for approximately
40 years. Photography has been a favorite hobby for each
for many years but only recently have they begun to market
a limited number of their photos. Ben used 35 mm cameras
initially but for years has used exclusively medium format
cameras, Mamiya 645's and a Rollei. Pat uses mostly 35
mm cameras, Canon AE 1's and occasionally a Mamiya 645.
Ben prefers a completely manual camera while Pat prefers
the flexibility of manual/automatic. Ben processes his
own black and white film and prints.
Ben's second hobby is model railroading
so for many years he concentrated on railroad photography.
He has archived both diesel and steam locomotives, many
now obsolete. Ben's photography has been featured on the
Texas Mexican Railroad Calendar and published in four
railroad magazines. Lately he has become interested in
landscape photography as well.
Pat's second hobby is travel which she has
done extensively throughout the years. She has traveled
to various states within the U.S. including Hawaii. to
most of Mexico where she had lived
for five years, portions of Canada, Hong Kong, Japan,
Taiwan. Peru, Argentina, most of the 15 republics of the
former Soviet Union, Yugoslavia, all of Central Europe
and Scandinavia. Together they have traveled to Vancouver,
B.C. and to New Zealand, north and south islands.
During the last few years my interest in landscape and
scenic photography has grown as witnessed by these limited
edition scenic photographs from a recent trip to New Zealand's
North and South Islands. Photographing New Zealand is
just great! The country is very beautiful with many possible
sites for picturesque photographs.
As this site grows, hopefully, you will be able to enjoy
viewing many more landscape, scenic, and railroad photographs.
Planned are more Alco locomotive Century Series photographs
such as the 420, 424, 425, 430, 628, 630,and 636.
So browse at your leisure and enjoy.
