ABOUT PAUL FOWLES
Paul Fowles is a British award-winning landscape photographer, who was born and raised in mid-Wales. He took his first photograph at young age when his parents gave him a Kodak Box Brownie camera, and he has been taking photographs ever since.
After serving a number of years in the Royal Air Force, Paul returned to Wales and started a career in photography. His landscape photographs have been used in publicity materials by local businesses, councils and tourism organisations. Paul’s photographic work has also appeared in a number of national and regional magazines and newspapers.
In 2017 Paul was the winner in the Adult Living the view category ‘Alone against the torrent, Elan Valley, Mid Wales’ in the prestigious UK Landscape Photographer of the Year (Take a View) an annual international photography competition. Another image ‘The Lifeboat Crew, Aberdyfi, Mid Wales’ was commended in the same category. This is the first time any of Paul work had been put forward into a competition.
Paul enjoys communicating his enthusiasm for photography on his programme of photography one-to-one and small-group workshops, which are available to book in his website. Over the past couple of years, Paul has been using different concepts of the digital and infrared photography to expand his portfolio and interests.
Away from his photography, Paul lives in the picturesque village of Aberdyfi. He shares this life with his wife, four cats, and an ever-increasing number of tripods, lenses and cameras.
