Paul’s Bio

When I graduated as a photographer I had no idea where my career path might take me.

I now know that it is essential to be enthused by and understand your subject In order to portray it at its best photographically. I have been a freelance photographer for over 30 years and actually made a reputation as an award winning underwater photographer. To do so I have become proficient as a marine naturalist and developed an expertise in temperate European marine fish. As a result I have had many thousands of images published worldwide, as well as having written and illustrated numerous articles and a number of books.

I also have the rather odd accolade of having had images used on postage stamps in both the UK and Irish Republic!

I am still as passionate about my photography as I have ever been and am inspired to use my photographic artistry and technical precision to capture images that portray my understanding of, and emotive connection with, my subject matter. This applies to everything I photograph and mMy photography extend well above water too; I am inspired by the landscapes of North Wales and my compositions attempt to try to capture their stories, rich histories and intrinsic beauty.
