I’m very proud to announce that I have won the international B+W Photography Magazine’s Photographer of the Year 2010 competition!

And in addition to this, I am also the magazine’s Digital Printer of the Year 2010!  I was completely stunned when I was told I’d won, and it took several days for the news to eventually sink in.

Very many thanks to all the judges for selecting my “Behind The Eyes” animal series for the Photographer award and the “Lion’s Stare” print for the Digital Printer award.  All photographs were printed on Hahnemühle 300gsm Photo Rag fine art paper, using the Canon Pixma 9500 Pro, Mark II, printer.

All the winners’ work will be exhibited at Hooper’s Gallery in London between the 2nd and 9th September, as well as the winners receiving their awards on the launch night on the 2nd, which I’m very much looking forward to attending!  And the monthly magazine will publish the winning images in an edition later this this year – keep a look-out for it!

Best wishes, Paul

New work – Canadian coastline

August 13, 2010

Late last Autumn, we visited Nova Scotia in Canada and during the three-week trip I had the opportunity to travel along and photograph some of the incredibly stunning coastline the province has.  Having collected many images collected during visit, I’ve been working on compiling a new series of photographs, which I’ve now added to the website.  As with all my Fine Art prints, they are printed onto the superb Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper.

Clicking on the image will take you straight to the new series’ page.
