Paul began his studies with a National Diploma followed by a degree in Editorial Photography at the University of Brighton, from which he graduated in 2002. He then went on to do a teacher training PGCE at the University of Wales Newport, before teaching at a further education college for two years. He then undertook a Masters degree at the University of Brighton with an emphasis on photographic theory and critique.
In Paul’s own photography practice he undertakes commissions such as documenting the renewal and regeneration of a historic site in Brighton, as well as exhibitions.
His own work stylistically mixes documentary and fine art conventions, producing images representing a landscape constantly in dialogue with those who shape it. His main subject; the landscape and our cultural connections to it, has lead him to produce landscape imagery from paintball arenas hidden away in the woods, a series of images that references fairy tales, and the suburban environment in a picturesque manifestation.
