The majority of Paul's personal projects are often focused on people; their interests and passions, especially if they are in or around water. When Paul returned back to the UK in 2016 he revisited one of his first projects on cold water swimmers, (originally shot in 2001), which focused on the original swimmers and is a perfect example of why age should be no barrier to exercise; many of the swimmers have been partaking in their daily exercise come rain or snow for the past 30 years.
In 2018, Paul returned to NZ, where he is presently in the process of completing a ten year project. In 2010, he created a series of photographic portraits capturing the identity of junior rugby players, focusing on their natural expressions, body language and for some their discomfort of being in front of the lens. Now ten years later, he is in the process of reconnecting with these children to re-capture their identity as young adults.
