Why I’m good at what I do…

The sights, sounds, and smells of the Norfolk coast are woven into my soul; my happy childhood is a bright tapestry of memories.

I’m a Norfolk man, born and brought up in Norwich. Seaside holidays at Burnham Overy Staithe with my parents and younger sister, Kelly, played an important part in my childhood. Several times a year, at all times of the year, my family spent holidays and weekends in our caravan, where the beauty of Norfolk’s unspoiled beaches and wide skies provided the backdrop to our other world, where there was peace and contentment and sibling harmony.

People have commented that there’s a distinctive style to my Norfolk landscape photography, and I believe that my work is rapidly becoming one of the most recognisable representations of the county.

My passion for Norfolk’s dark winter skies and rough seas, fiery sunsets and tough, wind-slapped greenery was born from an early exposure to these beauties – before I knew they were beautiful.

I’m proud to sponsor Norfolk-based charities. My popular Norfolk landscape charity calendars (which have reached every continent in the world!) have raised funds for many local charities, including Cromer RNLI, Nelson’s Journey, and Red Balloon. But my charitable work hasn’t all been a still pool of serenity – there were a few ripples when an anxious Mr Macro photographed naked ladies for Break!My life has been shaped by the landscape and the people of Norfolk. This is my way of giving a little bit back.

Do I have any dreams or ambitions? Well, I’d love to see the Northern Lights ‘close up’, I’d like to visit Borneo’s orang-utan sanctuary, and most of all, I dream of owning a caravan at Burnham Overy Staithe, where we – my partner, Sarah, and our children, Bethany and Molly, can recreate the happy holidays of my childhood.

  • Paul delivered such a superb 4sight the other day, but more than that takes some superb photos. Have used quite a few of his images now to promote me and my business, really has a nice style with his images, and looking forward to seeing what projects can do down the line.
  • I have know Paul for a couple of years, not only is he a really nice, genuine guy, he's absolutely awesome at what he does! Since we met I've only ever bought his calendars, the Norfolk Coast is one of my favourite places, I have just revamped my lounge with more of his wonderful images, thank you!
  • I have worked with Paul and purchased his calendars and book. He's a fabulous man - he did all of our corporate pics for the website (I hate having my photo taken). I've also bought his beautiful calendars and more recently, his book of coastal photograps - one as a gift and one for me.
