MIKE PAUL

Hi, I’m Mike, I’m 34 (35 in April) from the UK.  Originally from Brighton, on the Sussex coast in South East England, I moved to Cardiff in 2006, where I’ve been living ever since.  IT Project Manager by trade, father of 1 (to a cat), I try my hardest to shoot as much as I can in my spare time.  It can be rather sporadic, as can my train of thought, so be warned…

I first got into photography through Instagram in 2012/2013.  My first picture was 100% horrendous, I didn’t even know a) I’d taken it or b) I’d posted it… what an idiot!  After I finally figured out what I was doing I found my feet a bit more with composition and exposure.  After that, I was completely hooked and wanted to find out all I could about photography.  I have the type of personality where if I’m interested in something, I get completely obsessed with it and can’t shake it off.
