“I believe there is in all human beings a deep connection with the natural environment. My hope is that, through my photography, people will rediscover the previous connection they can have with the wonders of our planet.”

Based in Alberta, Canada, Paul has spent his life capturing some of the world’s most beautiful mountain terrain.

Paul’s travels have taken him around the planet and, whether it’s learning from the peoples of the tiny island nations of the Pacific or trekking through Scandinavia, these experiences have helped him develop an appreciation of nature that few will ever possess.
