Hi, I'm Paul from Melbourne, Australia, firstly I'd like to let you know that my huge horrible watermark will NOT appear on your prints.
Before I continue, MOST of my work is shot in a 3x2 ratio, NOT ALL of it. If you find something that you'd like to buy, once at the checkout, try and find a size that does not need cropping, examples of work in 3x2= 6x4, 9x6 (not common), 12x8, 15x10 etc...some photo's will need slight cropping though as they are unusual sizes. I just want you to know that if you do have to crop one of my photos, you will not get what you see onscreen. I just want that to be upfront and honest so there are NO surprises if you do want something cropped. Remember, you can get around this most times by simply choosing a different paper size, it's that easy.
I studied photography for 18 months full time after doing Media Studies for 3 years in High School. I ended up landing a photojournalism cadetship for 1 year at a local newspaper.
I then moved into TV and stayed there for over 20 years as a location cameraman, not studio work. I love working outdoors.
I unfortunately fell ill in 2010 and in my spare time or good days as I like to call them, I try to get out to photograph whatever I find interesting.
I'm still re-learning the endless advances in the world of digital photography, as I was taught on film. Digital darkrooms are quite challenging, but I'm getting there. The one nice thing about this venture back to photography is that I'm not working for anyone. I'm not being told what to do as I can't actually book work because I might not be able to make it on the day. It's been extremely liberating to just wander around and shoot what I like, there's no daily deadlines anymore but this unfortunately leads to no income, so I have fallen back on photography and I'm loving it. Oh and if you spend over $50 US dollars you receive complimentary Boutique Packaging which is superb.
I hope you like my work and will understand better as to why I chose this name for my company. I just do what I can when I can. The last two years have been a bumpy ride but hey, I have a camera, what more could you ask for :)
Thanks and enjoy,
