About Paul Simon.
As the events of everyday unfold around us, it is hard for us to see the splendour that surrounds us. Hectic modern lifestyles and stimulus overload inhibit our senses masking the beauty of everyday life. My photography's mission is to seek out this elusive beauty and commemorate it in stunning photographs. My themes are as diverse as the world that surrounds us. From the old world beauty of Tuscany, to the wonders of my own hometown, I capture timeless moments as they pass by.
As a dentist whose career was cut short, I've gone from interpreting x-rays to interpreting nature through the lens of a digital camera.
Every image, whether it is animals, landscapes or buildings tells a story and I get a great deal of satisfaction telling that story through my camera and my prints
Black and white or colour, I find beauty in every subject resulting in a very eclectic portfolio. Without a single passion or niche, photography allows me to experiment and the variety is very fulfilling. . My latests foray is in panoramic photography, using a tripod and a panoramic head, multiple images of up to 20 are shot and then stitched together in Photoshop to give the desired effect.
