All,

Follow the link below to a collection of my railroad portraits, from 17 states – both standard and narrow gauge.
All of these are staged shots, using only ambient and/or natural light.
Criticism and feedback are welcomed.

Click on “Slideshow” on the top right of the screen.

Wonderful! Each shot is very different but very connecting to the viewer.

Hi Matthew -

Wonderful essay of crews, passengers and line side people.  You really captured railroaders in their environment.  I always like seeing your work. 

I hope you make it to Sheepscot this year.

A great series of photos.  In looking back on my railroad photography, I wish I had focused less on the equipment and more on the people.
