Robin Coombes: Railway Photographer

Robin Coombes

Look at his photos and you would assume the work of someone who has spent decades in photography. However, Robin Coombes only began exploring photography seriously in 2006. He shares his perspective on railway photography, historic photo charters, and his pursuit of a PhD on Heritage Railways at University of Birmingham!

    what photographer inspired me that would be O Winston Link Hands Down he was the Inspiration for me to not only Photograph Steam Locomotives but also was the inspiration to document steam at the Everett Railroad But also to Night time Photos of trains as well my Frist Night time Shot of a train was just shortly after Rail camp in 2012 I was at the station at Roaring Spring station and we just wrapped up running the Santa trains with the Diesel and when the Diesel was coming by I Experimented with Night Photo of the train Passing and what I got was a photo similar to O Winston Links now hopefully I can get more Photos like Links by Photographing EVRR 11 running at Twilight or after dark!
