About MeWelcome - thanks for visiting
Helmut Newton said 'The first 10,000 shots are the worst' - so there's some hope for my photography, as I passed that threshold quite a while ago :). These days I shoot a wide variety of photographic styles, as is reflected in my rather unfocused portfolio. Whatever the style, models are the centre of my photographic universe, to be treated with total respect. I greatly value what each individual brings to the shoot in terms of ideas and capabilities, every shoot being an opportunity for mutual inspiration.
I'm a very easy-going kind of person - models looking for a photographer with an overbearing ego should look elsewhere :). You can see from my feedback that models like working with me and we often work together many times.
I have a studio room here in Norfolk with high ceiling, oak beams, and a spiral staircase. Outside there are private places to shoot including barns / stables, paddocks, and a small wood. Also 'props' such as four large horses and my old American car (a '68 Mercury Cougar). The surrounding rural / farming area has many great locations for shoots.
I pay professional and semi-professional models if I there is a mutual wish to work together and I can justify the investment, or if I identify the looks and skills I need for a particular shoot, or if the shoot is client funded. I do collaborate on TF shoots if it will benefit my portfolio - my time for TF is limited so I have to be selective, but do get in touch if you like what you see in my port and think you'd like to work with me.
Here are four of the many feedback comments I have received from models:
"I had such a wonderful shoot with Paul. Paul is so much fun to work with and so full of ideas. I was well briefed before the shoot, allowing me to organise myself better - very helpful! We achieved so much in the time we shot together. [...]
Paul is a fab photographer and very versatile with it - I thoroughly enjoyed our shoot! Very highly recommended!" Helen Stephens, Purpleport, April 2013.
"I have now worked with Paul now for the 6th time last week at my new home in Shrewsbury :) Have shot with him now over 4 years and every shoot has been amazing each and everyone- fun, professional easy going full of ideas!! And the results well they've been awesome too :) Pre comms are always exellent hes never let me down once have also managed a few last minute ones. Paul is amazing to work with- Highly recommended!!" Natalia Forrest, Purestorm, March 2013.
"(Paul) was wicked to shoot with - he had some brilliant ideas and we really clicked in terms of style, he definitely knows his stuff about lighting and how to catch a model's pose at the best angle, and it was clear from the start he was very passionate about photography - very nice guy too. :) Would strongly recommend him and look forward to working with him again." Amelie Alden, Purestorm, January 2013
"A wonderful kind hearted man with a great eye for erotic shots. Full of amazing ideas and always never lacking in humor. (Paul) is a wonderful photographer that has helped me build my portfolio with some fantastic pictures. Can be trusted completely with a model no matter where you shoot. A true gentleman. Thanks Paul for all my amazing pictures." China White (Jenny), MM, December 2012.
