Benjamin McAlister




Ben McAlister is a junior staff writer for “The Tiger Print”. He is involved in track and field and wrestling; last year he took 7th place in the discus state finals and is aiming for improvement this year. Ben is a person with many thoughts, ideas & concepts he loves to act on and express creativity. Ben has always been an avid photographer. Ben mainly shoots on his vintage medium format film cameras. He enjoys going for walks and adventures wherever he is — or ends up. Recently he has seen himself gravitating towards  a style he likes to call ‘rural abandoned exploration.’ Ben says this consists of the exploration of old barns and structures in the country close to collapsing and telling the story of them through his images, creating a photo series that he uses to tell stories — of course always taking his film cameras along with him — slowly & methodically creating a roll of 8-16 printable images. At home, Ben runs things through his home studio where he scans and process’s his film & files for prints. In the future, Ben hopes to start his own website selling fine art prints as well as offering an array of services & maybe even getting a gallery of his own. Ben has always had an interest in photojournalism — which is why he joined “The Tiger Print”.
