About Me

My name is Paul and I have been a photographer most of my life. I currently work as the National Training Specialist for Nikon USA. (yes... THAT Nikon... the camera people.) A big part of my job is to teach photography to consumers. For that I am always in need of new pictures.

I have recently relocated to Irvine, CA, although my job takes me all over the country. Most but not all of my model needs will be centered around the Southern California area. If you are in the Irvine/Orange County area and have some free time... and want to make some pictures to expand your portfolio... or to explore an idea... PLEASE contact me. My job keeps me traveling nearly half the time, but I can work on very short notice if I am in town.

I am in constant need of new comparative example images (good vs better style pictures). I also get to test new gear before the public gets to buy it. I don't charge models for my work... and I rarely have a budget to pay models for working with me. I am hoping to find a group of "regulars" consisting of models and MUA to trade time for images on a regular basis.

Recently, one of my "Regulars" did me a favor and sat for me while I tested out a new camera. We ended up posting six of the pictures on my Flickr site. Those six pictures have been seen a total of over 50,000 times. It was picked up by Nikon and run on the front cover of the 2012 Mother's Day insert. It was printed 10 Million times!! It has directly lead to several paying jobs for the model.

I do occasionally have need to hire people (photos for cash) for workshops I teach for Nikon. I would prefer to have worked with anyone I hire for consumer/public workshops before the event. I need to ensure that the model I present in public is what is needed when we get set-up in front of a group of people and that there are no surprises.

Due to the nature of the job and the uses I have for the images I make, they MUST be "G" or "PG" rated. If you are looking for someone to make nude images of you, I am probably not the right photographer for you.

I hope you will read this and we can find some time to work together!

Hey, I'm interested to come to America in future but at the moment while traveling is still difficult, I am offering remote shoots afternoons on Wednesdays or Mondays Melbourne time until March 8th. I'm currently working with another photographer to do these shoots but I hope in future to get my own gear and do more on location remote shoots. I have a CBD apartment with a rooftop balcony, large natural light windows, a range of backdrops, props & can use the buildings facilities of a gym, spa, pool & sauna. My rates for remote shoots would be less than what I charge for in person shoots. Let me know how many hours you would like me to quote you for and if you like to pay by PayPal or a bank transfer to my UK bank or AUS bank. We would tether the camera to the laptop and screen share so you can control the settings/shots & we could chat over FaceTime or WhatsApp during the shoot.

The gear we have is a Sony full frame camera with a range of lenses available; 50mmf1.8, 85mmf1.4gm, 17-28f2.8, 28-75f2.8, 105f1.4gm, 70-200f2.8gm

Would love to know what style you would like to shoot & when. Hope to hear from you soon! All the best, kind regards.
