Inside Train Photography.
I’m very fond of inside train photography, photographic train journeys give me the chance to keep pursuing my passion for photography whilst I’m travelling.
It enables me to capture interesting candid portraits in real-life situations, which tell stories about people’s lives in different places.
Photographic Train Journeys.
Plenty of photo opportunities are available on a train ride and not just on board, but also at the stations. Inside train photography allows capturing candid portraits in real-life situations, conveying unique stories of their lives in different places.
The subjects are diverse and interesting, from people waiting to board the train to those already on it. With its modern and stylish interiors and large windows offering ample natural light, the train itself provides an ideal setting for photography.
I find all this very exciting.
The Magic of photographic Train Journeys
Inside train photography makes me notice how humans beings tend to behave differently when they are miles away from home.
I’ve also noticed how they socialise more easily when they spend time travelling for pleasure.
I’ve always liked inside train photography in Europe, but since I’ve lived in Bangkok for the last decade I’ve taken a lot of photos on trains in Southeast Asia, and you know what? I really love it.
I find the subjects photographed to be more diverse and interesting.
The following is a photo series that I captured during a ride from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi in Thailand. It takes between 2 and 3 hours. Sometimes 4.
Perfect for a photographic train journey!
I find inside train photography on high-speed trains to be especially exciting, as it provides a unique opportunity to photograph modern and stylish train interiors in addition to diverse and interesting subjects.
The next series of images is from my trip in Taiwan on a high-speed train, where I was able to take advantage of the large windows and plenty of natural light to capture some great candid shots of friendly and curious people on board.
I often travel to Cambodia, it’s my favourite country for inside train photography.
People don’t mind me taking pictures of them. Actually, they love it.
It makes me feel relaxed and more ‘focused’ on the scene in front of me so my only concern is to compose the image.
