A Rhode Island native and extensive traveler, Paul’s approach to photography and life is to remain open, trust his instincts, and discard labels that are divisive. He uses technology to increase his creative options and productivity but not to replace his vision and responsibility. Much of his efforts have focused on travel, event, and fine art photography.
Among those who have influenced his expression are documentary photographers Dorothea Lange and Helen Levitt, natural light photographer Jay Maisel, painter and photojournalist Librado "Lee" Romero, printmaker and pin-hole photographer Walter "Rusty" Crump, and designer and artist Ken Done.
Paul's images have been exhibited in juried and invitational competitions throughout the United States, several solo and two-person exhibitions in Cuba, and group shows in Greece and Hungary.
A firm believer in giving back to the community, Paul has donated his skills to community efforts in several states.
