Paul’s passion is photojournalism. He started doing photography at the young age of 14 years old and joined a photography club with his brother in high school. Paul’s first camera was a Pentax K1000. Most of his photography was black & white.

Many years later, Paul and his family moved to Toronto in 1987. It was in Toronto where Paul purchased his first serious camera, a Nikon EM. This was the moment where Paul took his photography more serous but, still, as a hobby. Paul would walk the streets of Toronto with his brother and take photographs for hours.

By 1989, Paul’s family moved back to Vancouver. Paul started to take photography more seriously and purchased a Nikon FM2. Paul did wedding photography but decided that photojournalism was his passion.

By 2011, Paul purchased a Nikon D90 DSLR and decided to take digital photography. This was the deciding moment for Paul to start travelling the world to major cities like New York, San Francisco, Budapest, Vienna and Bratislava for more photojournalism photography.
