MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER PAUL UNDERHILL
Hi, I’m Paul, a full-time professional photographer and photojournalist based in Bournemouth in Dorset. I specialise in documenting weddings, events, reportage and lifestyle photography, working throughout the UK and internationally.
How did you become a professional photographer?
Photography became a passion from a very young age after my parents gave me a camera as a gift. The hobby naturally grew into a career as I discovered an artistic talent and an imaginative eye for images. I love taking photographs, being creative and producing great photos.
What do you enjoy best about your job?
There is no better satisfaction then having someone appreciate your photography. This has always driven me to produce images that excel every time, striving to exceed my potential both creatively and technically, this has allowed me to organically evolve as a photographer.
Whether fulfilling a commercial client’s brief for promotional photography or having a happy couple, their family and friends smile as they view their wedding day photos and get transported back to all the special moments.
What makes you stand out from your competition?
I have travelled the globe working as a photojournalist for the international press, glossy magazines and corporate brands, specialising in capturing the moment through lifestyle portraiture and event photography.
20 years of unique experience working for a wide variety of clients in diverse locations, from specific briefs through to openly expressive artistry and tight deadlines, has developed my technical skills, creative abilities, eye for detail and a professional approach.
How would you describe your services?
I always ensure I offer the same high standard of personal service to every client so that they receive the best possible images and professional service. From an initial consultancy to discuss their photography requirements to arranging post production work to ensure each image is at its best.
Using the latest digital technology and high end professional camera equipment I ensure all my clients receive the best glossy magazine quality no matter how large or small the shoot.
Fully digital production allows for changes and enhancements to achieve outstanding results even in the most difficult of situations, in addition to allowing endless creative control and artistry.
What photographic equipment do you use?
To ensure that I am able to supply the highest quality and reliability all my equipment is a professional grade. The cameras are Canon’s flagship models enabling superior image capture. The optics are Canon’s L series professional lenses that ensure sharp and crisp images. I always have spare equipment with me at all times and have them regularly serviced.
Peace of mind
As a professional photographer I have full comprehensive public liability insurance and professional indemnity cover.
