Paul was born in Glasgow in, well, let's just say it was a while ago.
Even as a kid, he always had a fascination with photography, and was always the one who wanted to take all the photos on family holidays.
When he was 17, he bought his first camera, an Olympus Trip, and he photographed anything and everything around him, but it never occurred to him until he was in his mid-twenties, that he could make a career out of making photographs.
After studying at college for 4 years, he left with his diploma, a folio, a couple of clients and an overdraft. Within 4 months, he had his own studio, a couple of new clients and a bigger overdraft! That was 25 years ago.
Everything has changed; film is gone (almost!), digital is here, the business has gone from just him, to12 plus him and now back to just him again.
He now works from home in a purpose built studio just a few miles south west of Glasgow, and he doesn't miss the commute one bit. The one thing that has remained constant is his love of making pictures.
