Hi, my name is Geoff Plumb and I'm a lifelong railway enthusiast!
I am also a professional television cameraman, employed by London Weekend TV and Granada TV before going freelance in 1997, though now more or less retired. My interest in railways was encouraged by my father from the age of about 2 years old in the Sheffield area, I first took up railway photography (Black & White) as a schoolboy hobby in 1962, this interest in photography leading me into television eventually. I started taking 35mm colour slides in 1963 on a Voigtländer Vito CLR camera which saw me through to the end of steam in 1968. I then started travelling abroad in search of steam and upgraded to Pentax SLRs, on which the majority of my 30 odd thousand photos have been taken. I still occasionally use 2 Pentax film SLRs and started in the digital field with the Pentax *istD digital SLR some years ago. I have now upgraded to the Pentax K20D Digital SLR, and I'm looking forward to using this camera from now on! 35mm Slides and Negatives on this site are scanned with a Minolta DiMage Scan Elite 5400 film scanner, prints are scanned using an Epson Perfection 1260 flatbed scanner.
Like others, I hope to be able to publish a selection of my photos from over the years, hopefully for everyone's enjoyment!
This will take a while, so please bear with me...
