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 80,000 plus pictures to view or buy.


STOP PRESS: (28th November 2022)

 

The world's getting back to normal after Covid which means my travels have resumed with a vengeance - as have the press trips and events. I've visited Germany several times for work this year and also added travel images from Greece. Expect more exotic destinations to appear shortly...

 

Like most freelances, I'm feeling the pinch financially as the world recovers from Covid, the war in Ukrainse and (here in the UK) economic problems caused by our own Government. So, if you'd like to buy copies of any pictures (prices start from as little as £1.29) you can buy prints through this website. I'd be very grateful for your support. Of course, you can also show support by buying me a coffee! https://ko-fi.com/paulbigland68312

I hope you continue to enjoy the stroll down memory lane that the archive pictures will provide. I've added several thousand old slides during the 'lockdown' years, but still have more to complete when time permits.  

 

Cheers,

Paul

ABOUT ME:

I'm a freelance professional photographer, journalist and blogger 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, Railnews and Rail Business Daily. 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.
