About me

From the moment I unwrapped a Kodak Disc 400 camera for my tenth birthday, I have been a photographer. Taking photographs is more than a job to me, it’s a vocation.

I know that being a photographer is more than just having the right equipment, it’s about having the right attitude and approach. The most important thing of all is the relationships I build with my clients and subjects, making people feel comfortable and at ease so I can capture them at their best and most real.

“Paul put us at ease from the first time we met with him. On the wedding day, he made us and all the guests laugh and feel relaxed and comfortable. His fun approach really suited our wedding and this is reflected in our wonderful photos.
