Hi folks,

Welcome to my website which contains a growing number of archive pictures and all the new stuff taken since the demise of Fotopic. Right now there's over 41,600 pictures to view or buy.

STOP PRESS (30th January 2016)

Where did 2015 go? 2016 has kicked off with my first visit to Sri Lanka since 2004. This has given me chance to focus on the changing face of the country and its railways. As well as continuing writing about it in my blog, which you can find here:

https://paulbigland.wordpress.com/

My next priorities are to disband last years monthly galleries & relocate the pictures in the subject galleries. On my return to the UK I'm going to make a start on scanning some of the thousands of slides I have covering both rail and travel from 1999 to 2004. Many of them have never been seen before.

I'm also continuing to whittle down the numbers of galleries to make stuff easier to find. That said, some new galleries will appear in 2016 as franchises change and pass into history.

In the meantime I hope you continue to enjoy the site.

ABOUT ME:

I'm a freelance professional photographer and journalist who works (mostly) in and around the rail industry.

I hold a current PTS (Personal Track Safety) Sentinel card for both AC & DCCR, which enables me to carry out work on and about the track on Network Rail

As well as my journalistic endeavors I’ve worked for most of the major players in the industry, this includes: The DfT, Network Rail, Hitachi, Siemens, Abellio, Alstom, ATOC, Arriva, The Go-Ahead group, Virgin, First Great Western, DB Schenker, National Express group, Northern Rail, Grand Central, London Underground and First Capital Connect.

My pictures and articles appear in a host of magazines including RAIL, Modern Railways, The International Railway Journal, The Railway Magazine, Railways Illustrated, Tramways and Urban Transit and Railnews. I also supply pictures to the national newspapers and media which includes The Times, Daily Mail, The Guardian, The Independent The Telegraph and the BBC. Pictures have also been used in many books over the years – including the Lonely Planet series of travel guides.

Besides the railway images I’ve a large library of worldwide travel pictures featuring dozens of countries from all corners of the planet.

Guestbook for Paul Bigland Photography

I never have seen a photographer who concentrates his projects on the rail networks of a country. And I think that does makes you stand alone in the photographer’s community. Actually, it is a good thinking as it will give you a unique identity.

Tyneside Metro isn't correct. It is called Tyne & Wear Metro for a reason. It's within Tyne & Wear county and the system serves BOTH Newcastle and Sunderland.

Excellent Collection, Paul! Loved the Indian pictures, especially!

Excellent collection in Manchester. It's 40 yrs since I worked in the city centre. I must get back to take some shots. I like the inclusion of the passengers etc to create the whole scene. Too many shots by others just show the tram/loco which could be anywhere. Thanks again for sharing.
