Geoff is a lifelong railway enthusiast, born in Sheffield in March 1949. From an early age he took thousands of photos, the vast majority in colour, documenting the decline and fall of steam locomotives. Geoffs interest in photography led to his forty plus years career in Television, starting with London Weekend TV as a cameraman in 1968, later with Granada TV and finally as a freelance lighting cameraman. Many of Geoffs photos have been published in magazines, such as The Railway Magazine and Steam Railway, and in books including Red Panniers Last Steam on the Underground. The Royal Mail has even used a couple of his photos on specialist stamp issues! Geoff has an active photo gallery website at www.plumbloco.co.uk where many of his pictures can be seen.
