About

Railway photographer Colin Wallace lives in the beautiful countryside of South Devon in England.

Photography has been a passion of his for many years, he enjoys all types of photography but his main interest is Steam Railway photography.

Colin got his first camera when he was 14 years old, this was a second hand Zenit-E with a 50 mm lens. He soon progressed to an Olympus OM10 which he used for a couple of years. Since the early 1990’s he has been a Canon user. Colin’s first auto-focus camera was the Canon EOS 650, from there he went to the EOS 5 and then to the EOS 3. His first digital camera was the Canon 350D, then the 40D which he kept for a few years before upgrading to the 7D. Colin has since upgraded to the excellent full frame 5D mkIII.

Colin is very lucky to have two great Heritage Railways on his door step, The South Devon Railway and the Dartmouth Steam Railway where both have provided him with many great days out.

Colin holds a current South Devon Railway Line side and Personal Track Safety Permit which gives him the option of getting that exclusive photograph that is sometimes not possible from a public place.

Over the years he has had some of his work published in a number of nationwide magazines and local newspapers such as:

Railways Illustrated
Heritage Railways
Traction
South Devon Railway Bulliver
Totnes Times
Totnes News
South Devon Herald Express

Colin has even sold a few photographs to railway enthusiasts.
