His love for the arts has grown throughout the years. He attributes his devotion to interpreting nature in an artistic manner to his parents. His father, Joseph, is an avid outdoorsman, his mother; Tobia is gifted with artistic talents, which she learned from her mother who was a surrealist and landscape oil painter. "Her paintings hang on my wall as a tribute to her life".
Paul uses every opportunity to explore the outdoors and having the Pacific Ocean and Sierra Mountains as his back yard provides him with endless photographic opportunities. Many of Paulís photos highlight trips he has taken to destinations like Yosemite, Sequoia and Lassen National Parks and many other jewels of California in wilderness areas and State Parks.
"I am constantly searching for those rare magical moments when the Perfect Light embraces us. I love to capture light in moments of time and share them with my family and friends"
I hope you enjoy my galleries!
