About The Photographer

Paul has been an enthusiastic amateur and club photographer since his school days. He has taken photographs of many subjects over the years, but macro (or more accurately "close-up") photography has always been his main interest. He has used Canon camera equipment almost exclusively. Once a prolific producer of Cibachrome prints in his blacked-out kitchen darkroom, he has now fully embraced the digital era from camera through to printer, which he considers to be much more civilised. He wouldn't go back.

In 1988 Paul gained a Licentiateship in the Royal Photographic Society (LRPS) in the Nature Prints category. He progressed to the Associate level (ARPS) in 1994 with a panel of Pictorial slides. Finally in 2000 he gained a Distinction in the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (DPAGB) with a panel of prints. He has decided to quit while he is ahead...

Paul is in his mid-50's and lives in Gosport, on the south coast of England.

He no longer wears a necktie.
