Photographer of Night, Light & Steel Wheels

About Jon Wright

Jon Wright lives with his wife and three children just outside Martinsburg, West Virginia in the northern Shenandoah Valley.

Specializing in railroad photography, he has taken a liking to night photography using a blend of available ambient natural lighting and artificial light. He began taking videos of trains in 2008. In 2010, he switched over to photography and late that year began taking photos at night.

His work has been seen in the railfan publications “Railpace” and “Railroad’s Illustrated.” He wrote his first feature article on the short line Maryland Midland which was published in the March 2014 issue of RRI.
