My Expertise

  • Norway Flag Spitsbergen

Paul is a fierce conservationist, award-winning photographer and guide with a huge following eager for his particular brand of leading. What he always gets are results for his clientele.

The Sunday Times described him as ‘preposterously vivacious, a guide of psychotic gusto’ and they also added ‘no-one will drag you up the wildlife photography ladder quicker.’ The Independent remarked ‘think Gordon Ramsay with cameras, not pots and pans’. A trip with Paul is never dull and always fun, busy and fulfilling.

There will be times when Paul may take you outside of your comfort zone but this will inevitably lead to you capturing exceptional photographs to enhance your wildlife collection.

Paul knows the Polar Pioneer well and has previously worked with her captain, expedition leader and crew. They will make a formidable team on our exclusive Spitsbergen photographic charter.
