Here are some words from Paul about his work.
Hi, I'm Paul, a photojournalistic lifestyle photographer. I'm always looking for those genuine moments, always finding that beautiful light.
Tofino is my idea of paradise. It's truly elemental and I'm constantly in awe of the dynamic relationships we witness here. It's also the only place I've ever lived where my camera comes out with me every time I step outside. When it comes to photography, what I really adore is making a genuine connection with the people I'm lucky enough to photograph. With some minor direction and a little anticipation, together we can find the perfect blend of epic and intimate. Those little in-between points in time that show you in your comfort zone, and also at your best.
