I have been fascinated by trains
for almost my entire life, dating back to the early
1950s. My photographic efforts started in the mid 1970s when
I began snapping the UP, BN and C&NW in central Wyoming.
When I relocated to New York state in 1980 I discovered
others with a similar interest, and my serious efforts date
from that time. Throughout the 1980s and early 90s I
traveled throughout the country in search of rail action. In
1997 I moved again, this time to western Oregon. I was much
taken with the beauty and action of the SP's rugged
crossing of the Cascade Mountains, and acquired the "Cascade
Bruce" nickname from the local fans.
My philosophy of train photography is simple - I like to
take pictures of nice scenes, that just happen to include a
train. There are many fine rail photographers whose work has
inspired me, especially Richard Steinheimer and O. Winston
Link. I also enjoy riding, and travel by rail whenever time
and circumstances permit. Rail history fascinates me, and I
have an extensive library of rail related titles.
