Commissioned by the Goldsmiths’ Fair in 2019.
‘By Hand’ is a series of portraits and documentary photographs that capture a selection of the fair’s independent jewellers. Photographed within their workshops, every item is made by hand with extraordinary skill and artistry.
Now in its 35th year, the Goldsmiths’ Fair is held annually in the Goldsmiths’ Hall in London. It is recognised internationally as the premier showcase for contemporary jewellery and silver.
A terrific talent. Our guests have made no end of comments both as to the effort you made on the day (which was unobtrusive, relaxed and always good humoured, despite working like a Trojan all day) and to the quality of the end result – the photos were simply perfect. I have had no hesitation in highly recommending you.Tom & Rosie, Harrow School
Paul was superb. He captured every single intricacy throughout the day, which collectively, told the day with such clarity and detail. His ability to remain unnoticed assisted his knowledge and vision, to achieve photographs of a composed yet relaxed nature. We cannot speak highly enough of Paul; the quality of his photographs is superior and, equivocally so, is his demeanour and good nature.Rachel & Lee, Lake Garda, Italy
The recommendation we received to contact you was, on reflection, one of the single best wedding presents we were given…Tom & Rosie, Harrow School
We booked Paul after seeing the gorgeous photographs from a friends’ wedding last year. He is the photographer at another friends’ in December and also one next year, with no doubt more to follow!Toni & Mike, Lancashire
Paul managed to shoot some of the most poignant moments without us even realising he was there. He creates photographs that have a magical, yet natural quality to them…Jo & Niall, Leeds
