Paul first developed his love of photography after getting a heavy Russian SLR for his 13 birthday.  At school he used to spend many hours developing B&W prints in the school darkroom. Paul came to Norway in 2016 and enjoys photographing the Norwegian environment (both from the land and from the air), which is so different from the south of England, where he grew up. Paul is also working in Norway as a commercial photographer.

Paul uses both full frame digital cameras and drones to capture his images. He loves the different perspective you can get from the air, and how you can create abstract images. This usually takes meticulous planning with satellite imagery, but also sometimes just by pure chance. You can often find Paul in Nordmarka fully laden with camera gear on his e-bike searching out the next best spot to photograph!

Living right next to the forest and spending much time in the forest photographing, Paul was inspired to make frames for his prints made from Norwegian wood, you can read more about that here
