About the Artist

Paul has been passionate about photography since the early 1980’s. Nature, wildlife and action shots are his favorites and he loves the challenge that arises from the unpredictability of his subjects when he is trying to capture the perfect wildlife moment. He is a native of California and has spent the last twenty-eight years in Orange County. Paul grew up in Carmel Valley, so it is no surprise that he gravitated towards wildlife photography. Mountain bike riding, hiking, tennis and playing the electric guitar round out the list of pursuits for this U.C. San Diego graduate. He has a beautiful wife and two adorable children.

Paul’s work has recently been highlighted by "National Geographic":http://www.nationalgeographic.com/, "Sea & Sage Audubon Society":http://seaandsageaudubon.org/, "The Environmental Nature Center", "Irvine World News":http://www.ocregister.com/sections/city-pages/irvine/, "Focusingonwildlife.com":http://focusingonwildlife.com/news/. He is active within the Irvine Unified School District and gives presentations on wildlife photography.

Through his photography, Paul is trying to bring awareness to the abundant collection of wildlife that cohabit the Orange County area. He believes that the more we know about these amazing animals and their requirements, the better prepared we will be to live a peaceful coexistence with them. He strives to present brilliant photographs of these wonderful creatures, large and small, in a way that will both inspire and educate.
