Jeremy de Souza has been taking railway photographs for almost forty years, and although too young to have witnessed the end of regular steam in the UK, he has recorded many of the dramatic changes in the British and European rail scene. Although originally a committed film user, he migrated to digital photography in the early 1990s, amassing throughout a fascinating collection of 7,000 railway images. From his Hampshire home, de Souza travels regularly to pursue his hobby, searching for that ever elusive ‘perfect’ railway photo. His first book for Fonthill Media was the acclaimed Digital Railway Photography: A Practical Guide (2015).
