Phi Marsh has photographed politicians from Prime Ministers downwards (or upwards depending on your point of view!) as well as senior royalty over the years. He has an extensive image library going back over 150 years to the dawn of photography as seen on the main broadcast channels.


Railways in wartime and The Royal Train are two specialist subjects where Philip excels in images again dating back to the 1860s. Many of his images have been taken from behind the scenes on the railways reflecting his 46 year career (and counting) on the railways including Harry Potter Hogwarts Express filming in Scotland.


Railways are his specialist subject and he edited for its five year life and was also Chief Correspondent for the UK’s largest circulation railway publication, Morton’s ‘The Railway Magazine’ for a decade. He is now on the editorial team of Railnews, the rail industry paper and contributes to all the other important railway publications on a regular basis.


His third book, 'The Full Works' is the official 175th anniversary Wolverton Works book and at the end of 2017 had sold over 1500 copies. He has been interviewed literally hundreds of times on Television (BBC/ITV/Sky) and national and local radio commenting on all aspects of UK railways.


He has also photographed many world famous rock bands from the stage and the audience since the early 1970s, some officially and some not so...


He was honoured to be in charge of the Olympic Torch on its only main line steam train, from the Railway Museum at York to Northallerton in June 2012. He is also a volunteer at The Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway and also works as a member of traincrew for The West Coast Railway Company and has advised UK Rail Leasing Ltd on an as required basis. He has been the consultant for several railway documentaries ranging from railway franchising, The Royal Train and major railway disasters.
