Paul Bigland Photography

Hi folks,

Welcome to my website which contains a growing number of archive pictures and all the new stuff I'm  taking. Right now there's over 52,500 pictures to view or buy.

STOP PRESS: (17th May 2018)
 

2017 saw over 3,500 old and new pictures added to my site. I'm continuing to scan the 1000s of rail and travel pictures from my archives, so expect many more to appear in 2018. meanwhile, I'll be adding new images taken in the UK and elsewhere on a regular basis. There should be something to appeal to most tastes, so feel free to keep popping in to have a look. Next week I'll be adding new pictures from New York. 

 

I hope you continue to enjoy my pictures (old and new).

Cheers,

Paul

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.
