Photographer (Mosman, NSW)
Paul came into photography through a love of surfing and travel. This led to a desire to show how he saw the light hit (and miss) the landscapes he visited and the faces he met. This personal work evolved into a professional career that has spanned over 25 years.
His self commissioned photography has been collected in an online gallery - Collectable Photography - which enables visitors to view and purchase fine art prints of his work. Paul makes each print himself to archival museum standards using a large format printer. Editions range from 3 to 25 and each print is signed and numbered.
He also offers his fine art printing service experience and skill to artists and photographers. In close co-operation with artists, Paul reproduces their finest work to the same archival standards he applies to his own award winning prints. Paul also conducts workshops (in conjunction with The Friends of the Botanic Gardens) to help photography enthusiasts make the most of their DSLR cameras.
