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 43,300 pictures to view or buy.

STOP PRESS: IMPORTANT CHANGES TO MY WEBSITE (19th April 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/

 

I've begun the mammoth task of scanning tens of thousands of my old slides (both travel and rail pictures). To say this is a slow process is an understatement. It will literally take years but it's about time I got around to doing it as most of the pictures have never seen the light of day before. As of April 19th I've added just over a thousand.

 

To free up time I'm going to make changes to the way pictures are added to my website. So, from this month I won't be producing a monthly gallery. Instead, I'll put new pictures straight into their relevant galleries (by TOC etc). I'll list each updated gallery in this welcome message every time I add pictures. I hope this doesn't inconvenience people but the effort of disbanding a monthly gallery when it's got over 4-500 pictures in it is just too time consuming.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.

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.
