In the year 2003 after owning a camera of some description all of his life. Paul developed a passion for motor sport and in particular that of single seater racing car’s. During many races and test sessions. Paul wanted to take a few photos of the events he attended. Often just wanting a memento of the days events. So in 2003 Paul purchased his first SLR camera and started to take some really good photos. However now he had this new type of camera he wanted to see what else he could take photos of.
So after purchasing a few photo magazines he drew inspiration from what he saw and decided to see what he could do. Paul’s attention soon swayed to the idea of long exposures and in particular those of the light trail variety.

After then purchasing some accessories for his camera, he soon started capturing his first few long exposures, Paul was hooked on his new passion of Photography. One day he was looking through some articles about Spanish cities and was mesmerized by the beautiful Sagrada Familia in Barcelona which is a church still yet to be completely built. Yet there was just something about the place that captured Paul’s instinct for a good photo.

So off he went on a four day photo shoot of the area and imparticular the Sagrada Familia. The trip was blighted by heavy storms for three of the four days spent there. But despite being drenched by the constant onslaught of rain. Paul continued to take the best photo he knew how, so much was his enthusiasm for his much loved passion.

Arriving back home in the UK he realised how much an important role the weather plays into the success of any photo taken out doors. So during the later part of 2007. Paul set himself some important targets and inadvertently had a few photos shown on ITV’s Central Tonight weather bulletin. This, for Paul was fantastic and at the time never realised if his work was any good or not. Paul soon found new ways of taking photos and both his knowledge and experience increased beyond anything thought possible.

Now looking forward to the future. Paul is looking at new and exciting possibilities, whether that be landscapes photos, weather photos, studio images. The list is endless. In the end of the day Photography is something Paul clearly loves to do, whether it’s those early shot’s of a sunrise, or taking photo’s of blossoming flowers, or even studio work. For Paul he just loves the art of taking amazing and inspirational photo’s.
