About the Winner:
Paul has been passionate about art life-long, soaking up great works in the National Gallery of Scotland as a teenager and world-wide afterwards, initially studying Fine Art and acquiring a Contaflex, which cemented his relationship with “le huitieme art” and widened his artistic horizons to photography.
The arrival of the digital age significantly steepened his learning curve and intensified his practice of artistic photography, such that he has become more passionate about the freedom and inspiration enabled by the dramatic increase in control and responsiveness available in photography today. He is most excited by the graphic potential of architectural subjects, landscape, the night, water and also event photography, particularly Jazz performances.
He adopted Photeinos.com as my commercial branding, in tribute to his love of Greece and the inspiration-giving power of light inherent in the word. He has exhibited in Paris and the USA, is an Associate Member of the American Society of Media Photographers and launched his Fine Art and Photography web sales site on www.photeinos.com
