Limerick, ME

Hi there, My name is Paul I am originally from Australia and have been living in Maine for the past twenty four years. Photography, well where do I start? It is a passion for sure. Funny thing is I never really felt like I had a creative bone in my body, especially being color blind. I tried painting and man it was hard for me with all the colors to use so I purchased my first "big boy" camera which was a Nikon D300 (still have that one) and the rest they say is history. Now, I have around thirty thousand photos on different hard drives. When I look back at some of my earlier photos, I guess I have learned a few tricks since then. My "Wow" moment was purchasing a macro lens. I took some flower photos, I had that lens almost inside the flower and it opened up a whole new world for me. Photography is one business that can be challenging as everyone and their dog has a camera these days. So, I always try different things and different tricks. I love it, when, at the art shows, kids look at a photo of mine and say wow how did you do that? I love telling them some tips that even with their phones they can accomplish an incredible photo. I hope my passion for photography shows when you are viewing my photos and I hope I can inspire you to follow your dreams like I am living mine every time I pick up my camera. Take Care, Paul
