Paul K Porter Commercial, Portrait and Travel Photographer
To me, Life and Photography is about experiences and stories. I have had my fair share, my poor mum’s grey hair is evidence of this. I have experienced a faulty parachute over beautiful mountains (no camera.) Had a gun pulled on me by a Colombian Police officer (No pictures, too scared) and been on a train that caught fire in the middle of Germany somewhere (See below) and am not perturbed by any of this. I believe in the pleasure / pain theory and this was evident when I was on a yacht in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, floating around the beautiful blue waters while photographing a yoga sailing retreat. I mean, somebody had to do it 😉
My life experience and photography skill set allow me to be a versatile photographer. I make commercial, travel and portrait images around the world and teach lifelong skills, helping others improve their own photography. I have photographed luxury hotels in the mountains, government events, grammy nominated artists and 8 day old babies. My skills allow me to be adaptable to whatever scenario I find myself in.
Outdoor architecture and scenes, finding reflections in the strangest of places and playing with long exposure night images are my favourites to shoot.
I want to see my work used to help others. It may be for marketing and promotional work or as art. Most of all I want to:
Inspire others to explore through photography
I have received designation as an Associate Photographer with MPIO, Master Photographers International.
