Get “On Track” with Daniel Troy’s Railroad Photography


(Bucks County, PA)  There is a romance associated with trains…Trains take some people back to their carefree youth playing with the model trains under the Christmas tree…Others go back to the golden era of passenger travel, or going off to and coming home from war. Beginning on Sunday, November 15th, the rotating art exhibition “Discover the Arts in Bucks” at the Bucks County Visitors Center is welcoming back Daniel Troy with his new exhibit “On Track: Photographs by Daniel Troy.” His impressive works of art will be displayed in the theater of the Bucks County Visitors Center through January 9th, 2010 from 9am-5pm daily. This exhibit is free and open to the public!

Troy has traveled extensively throughout the United States and Canada to capture action on the rails. Photographing railroads has been a passion of his for about twenty years.  The never ending quest for the perfect combination of light, landscape, and railroad takes him thousands of miles from his Hulmeville, Bucks County home every year.

As a commercial photographer, he specializes in studio still life and products for advertising and catalogs.  He has a diverse client base that ranges from clothing to aircraft parts.  His railroad photographs have been used by major railroads and rail industry suppliers, and have appeared in most trade and hobby rail publications.  BrownTrout Publishers, the world’s largest calendar publisher, has featured his railroad photographs since 1996.

A native of Catawissa, PA, a central PA borough with a rich rail heritage, Troy has been a Bucks County resident for 23 years. He is a Graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) with a B. S. in Professional Photography. His other hobbies include being a Trombonist with the Delaware Valley Wind Symphony.
