Paddy started his career at Wimbledon Art College where he did a degree in Fine Art. During his 3 years at Wimbledon, Paddy moved from painting to photography, finding that he had more of a conceptual voice with the medium. After graduating from College with a Batchelor of Arts 2.1-degree Paddy went straight into commercial photography assisting, where he learnt how to use medium format cameras and professional studio lighting.
After 4 years of assisting, Paddy slowly branched off to build his own photography practice. When starting off Paddy worked as a part time television extra it was here where he picked up his first photography jobs by taking actors head shots and meeting new clients on set.
Paddy’s real photography passion lies in Music and Portraiture and at a very early stage of his career he was keen to knock on the record labels’ doors and build his portfolio by shooting new and up and coming artists. Paddy has now had his photography practice for over 15 years and over this time has had commercial involvement in Music, Fashion, Portraiture, Studio, Location, Commercial, Corporate, and Events Photography.
15 years advanced skills in photography post-production including colour grading, skin retouching, image manipulation, blue screen, batch processing and creating print ready imagery. Paddy’s passion in photography is ever strong and he has enjoyed developing his style through the transition of film to digital image making.
