Paul is an experienced Melbourne-based photographer with more than 40 years experience. I was introduced to photography when I was at school and I am rarely without a camera. I have experience shooting portraits, weddings and events, architecture, commercial product shoots, sports. Perhaps my real passion in photography is nature and wildlife.

More about Paul D....

What do you love about your job?

I love to capture moments in time. I know what it is like to look back on photographs many years later, so I love creating that for other people. Photographs are treasured memories and capturing and preserving those memories is something I love.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I have done many portrait shoots and I pride myself in my ability to make people feel comfortable in what is, in essence, an unusual situation! When I shoot events I love to look for those moments that would have otherwise passed unnoticed. When I shoot buildings, I always look to see what the light is doing and position myself to bring out the best in the building given that light.

A fun fact about this photographer

I am a qualified Private Pilot and have about 400 hours flying competition level aerobatics! I fell in love with flying when I was in my 20s and whilst am no longer very active - and certainly not doing aerobatics - I do try to get a flight in every now and then.
